For example, the following command initiates a link between the dial-out machine and dial-in server myserver:
% pppd 57600 call myserver
Starts the call by invoking the pppd daemon
Sets the speed of the line between host and modem
Invokes the call option of pppd. pppd then reads options in the file /etc/ppp/peers/myserver, which was created in How to Define the Connection With an Individual Peer
If the link is not working correctly, refer to Chapter 7, Troubleshooting Common Point-to-Point Protocol Problems.
% pkill -x pppd
If you have followed all the procedures in this chapter, you have completed the configuration of the dial-up link. The following list provides references to related information.
To have users start working on their dial-out machines, see How to Call the Dial-in Server.
To fix problems on the link, see Chapter 7, Troubleshooting Common Point-to-Point Protocol Problems.
