Migrating From Asynchronous Oracle Solaris PPP to Oracle Solaris PPP 4.0

Note - PPP was removed in the Oracle Solaris 11.4 SRU 24 release.

    Earlier versions of the Oracle Solaris OS included a different PPP implementation, Asynchronous Oracle Solaris PPP (asppp). If you want to convert peers that run asppp to the newer PPP 4.0, you need to run a conversion script. This chapter covers the following topics in PPP conversion:

  • Before Converting asppp Files

  • Running the asppp2pppd Conversion Script

The chapter uses a sample asppp configuration to explain how to accomplish PPP conversion. For a description of the differences between Oracle Solaris PPP 4.0 and asppp, go to Which Version of Oracle Solaris PPP to Use.
