NAME

       l2tpns - Layer 2 tunneling protocol network server (LNS)

SYNOPSIS

       l2tpns [-d] [-v] [-c file] [-h hostname]

DESCRIPTION

       l2tpns  is  a  daemon for terminating layer 2 tunneling protocol (L2TP:
       RFC 2661) sessions.

       Once running, l2tpns may be controlled by telnetting to port 23 on  the
       machine running the daemon and with the nsctl utility.

OPTIONS

       -d     Detach  from  terminal  and fork into the background. By default
              l2tpns will stay in the foreground.

       -v     Increase verbosity for debugging. Can be used multiple times.

       -c file
              Specify configuration file.

       -h hostname
              Force hostname to hostname.

FILES

       /etc/l2tpns/startup-config
              The default configuration file.

       /etc/l2tpns/ip_pool
              IP address pool configuration.

       /etc/l2tpns/users
              Username/password configuration for access to admin interface.

SIGNALS

       SIGHUP Reload the config from disk and re-open log file.

       SIGTERM, SIGINT
              Stop process.  Tunnels and sessions are  not  terminated.   This
              signal  should  be  used  to stop l2tpns on a cluster node where
              there are other machines to continue handling traffic.

       SIGQUIT
              Shut down tunnels and sessions, exit process when complete.
