Assigning IP Addresses by sppp Unit Number

If you are using either PAP or CHAP authentication, you can assign IP addresses to callers by the sppp unit number. The following shows an example of this usage.

myclient ISP-server mypassword

    The plus sign (+) indicates that the unit number is added to the IP address. Note the following:

  • Addresses through are assigned to remote users.

  • sppp0 gets IP address

  • sppp1 gets IP address and so on.
