       bpalogin   -  login  client  for  the  Telstra  Bigpond  Cable  Network


       bpalogin -c conffile -D


       This manual page  documents  briefly  the  bpalogin  command.   It  was
       written  for  the  Debian  GNU/Linux  distribution because the original
       program does not have a manual page.

       bpalogin is an open source login client for the Telstra  Bigpond  Cable
       Network in Australia. It is neither written nor supported by Telstra or
       Bigpond. It is both simple to  use  and  stable.  Unlike  the  standard
       client  it  does not crash, reconnects when there is a network problem,
       is available for most operating  systems,  can  run  as  a  service  on
       WinNT/2k/xp and comes with source.


       A summary of options is included below

       -c conffile
              Specifies  the  location  of  the  configuration  file  (usually
              /etc/bpalogin.conf).  This file contains the password and should
              therefore not be world readable.

       -D     Do not fork.
