1	Some additional information for setting up a syncPPP
2	connection using network interfaces.
3	---------------------------------------------------------------
4	
5	You need one thing beside the isdn4linux package:
6	
7	  a patched pppd .. (I called it ipppd to show the difference)
8	
9	Compiling isdn4linux with sync PPP:
10	-----------------------------------
11	To compile isdn4linux with the sync PPP part, you have
12	to answer the appropriate question when doing a "make config"
13	Don't forget to load the slhc.o
14	module before the isdn.o module, if VJ-compression support
15	is not compiled into your kernel. (e.g if you have no PPP or
16	CSLIP in the kernel)
17	
18	Using isdn4linux with sync PPP:
19	-------------------------------
20	Sync PPP is just another encapsulation for isdn4linux. The
21	name to enable sync PPP encapsulation is 'syncppp' .. e.g:
22	
23	  /sbin/isdnctrl encap ippp0 syncppp
24	
25	The name of the interface is here 'ippp0'. You need 
26	one interface with the name 'ippp0' to saturate the
27	ipppd, which checks the ppp version via this interface.
28	Currently, all devices must have the name ipppX where
29	'X' is a decimal value.
30	
31	To set up a PPP connection you need the ipppd .. You must start 
32	the ipppd once after installing the modules. The ipppd 
33	communicates with the isdn4linux link-level driver using the
34	/dev/ippp0 to /dev/ippp15 devices. One ipppd can handle
35	all devices at once. If you want to use two PPP connections
36	at the same time, you have to connect the ipppd to two
37	devices .. and so on. 
38	I've implemented one additional option for the ipppd:
39	 'useifip' will get (if set to not 0.0.0.0) the IP address 
40	 for the negotiation from the attached network-interface. 
41	(also: ipppd will try to negotiate pointopoint IP as remote IP)
42	You must disable BSD-compression, this implementation can't
43	handle compressed packets.
44	
45	Check the etc/rc.isdn.syncppp in the isdn4kernel-util package
46	for an example setup script.
47	
48	To use the MPPP stuff, you must configure a slave device
49	with isdn4linux. Now call the ipppd with the '+mp' option.
50	To increase the number of links, you must use the
51	'addlink' option of the isdnctrl tool. (rc.isdn.syncppp.MPPP is
52	an example script)
53	
54	enjoy it,
