How to Configure Users of the Dial-in Server

  1. Become an administrator on the dial-in server.

    For more information, see Using Your Assigned Administrative Rights in Securing Users and Processes in Oracle Solaris 11.2 .

  2. Create a new account on the dial-in server for each remote PPP user.

    For instructions about creating a new user, see Task Map for Setting Up and Managing User Accounts by Using the CLI in Managing User Accounts and User Environments in Oracle Solaris 11.2 .

  3. Create for each caller a $HOME/.ppprc file that contains various options that are specific to the user's PPP session.

    For example, you might create the following .ppprc file for pppuser.

    # cat /export/home/pppuser/.ppprc
