Dial-Up PPP Template Files

Oracle Solaris PPP 4.0 provides template files. Each template contains common options for a particular PPP configuration file. The following table lists the sample templates that can be used for setting up a dial-up link, and their equivalent Oracle Solaris PPP 4.0 files.

Template File
PPP Configuration File
For Instructions
/etc/ppp/options.tmpl
/etc/ppp/options
/etc/ppp/options.ttya.tmpl
/etc/ppp/options.ttyname
/etc/ppp/myisp-chat.tmpl
File with the name of your choice to contain the chat script
/etc/ppp/peers/myisp.tmpl
/etc/ppp/peers/peer-name

If you decide to use one of the template files, be sure to rename the template to its equivalent PPP configuration file. The one exception is the chat file template /etc/ppp/myisp-chat.tmpl. You can choose any name for your chat script.
