NAME

       pptpctrl - PPTP control connection manager

SYNOPSIS

       pptpctrl  pptp-debug-flag  no-ipparam-flag ppp-options-value ppp-speed-value ppp-local-ip-
       value ppp-remote-ip-value [ pptp-call-id ] [ ppp-binary ] [ pptp-logwtmp ]

DESCRIPTION

       pptpctrl is usually run by pptpd(8), but can also be run from  inetd(8)  if  some  of  the
       features  of  pptpd(8),  such  as  IP  pool  management, and inbuilt TCP wrappers, are not
       required.

OPTIONS

       pptpctrl options are unconventional, as they are designed for use by pptpd(8) rather  than
       users.   The  option  order  is  critical.   Flag options consist of a 0 or 1, and must be
       present.  Value options consist of a 0, or a 1 followed by the value.   Either  the  0  or
       both the 1 and the value must be present.  The remaining options are optional, but must be
       present in the defined order.  The options are as follows:

       pptp-debug-flag
              if set (1), enables debug messages to syslog from pptpctrl.  This has no effect  on
              the setting of the PPP debug option.

       no-ipparam-flag
              if set, pptpctrl will not pass the client's IP address to pppd(8) using the ipparam
              option.  See the noipparam option in pptpd.conf(5).

       ppp-options-value
              file to use for PPP options.  See the file option in pppd(8).

       ppp-speed-value
              value for the speed option given to pppd(8).  Note that on Linux, this parameter is
              ineffective.

       ppp-local-ip-value
              if  set,  specifies the IP address that pppd(8) is to use for the network interface
              on the server.  If not set, pppd(8) will determine it based on options; usually  it
              will be the ethernet address of the server.

       ppp-remote-ip-value
              if  set,  specifies the IP address that pppd(8) is to use for the network interface
              on the client.  If not set, pppd(8) will determine it based on options; usually  it
              will  be  the  ethernet address of the client, or an address given in chap-secrets.
              Must be set if ppp-local-ip-value is set.

       pptp-call-id
              if present, specifies the call identification for the PPTP  session.   If  omitted,
              the  call  identification  is  zero.   Normally the ID is allocated by pptpd(8) and
              passed to pptpctrl.

       ppp-binary
              if present, path to the PPP binary to use.  If omitted, the default value is used.

       pptp-logwtmp
              if present, specifies whether wtmp(5)  should  be  updated  as  users  connect  and
              disconnect.
