SYNOPSIS

pppclient [-h finalhost] [-p finalport] [-r proxyname] [-u proxyport] [-a user-proxy:pass-proxy] [-c 0|1] [-d 0|1] [-l logfile] [ configfile]

DESCRIPTION

pppclient is the client part of ssltunnel, a tool to tunnel PPP sessions over SSL.

The main features are:
o no Unix shell is needed on the server
o NTLM proxy authentication supported
o both pppd and the *BSD userland ppp are supported
o simpler than IPsec to deploy
Moreover, while IPsec is filtered on numerous networks, pppclient will allow you to connect to your server through an HTTPS proxy - even if it verifies that there is a SSL handshake, or an ISA server.

OPTIONS

The following options are supported:
-h finalhost Connect to the server using finalhost IP address or hostname.
-p finalport Connect to the finalport TCP port (usually 443).
-r proxyname Use HTTP proxy proxyname hostname or address.
-u proxyport Connect to HTTP proxy using proxyport TCP port.
-a user-proxy:pass-proxy
  Use user-proxy:pass-proxy as credentials if HTTP proxy asks for an authentication. If using an NTLM authenticated proxy as MS ISA server, username should be such as DOMAIN\user.
-c 0|1 If set to 1, restart pppd if link goes down.
-d 0|1 If set to 1, forks and detach from terminal after reading configuration. Logs are sent to syslogd(1) if next option is not set.
-l logfile Logs to logfile instead of syslogd(1) when starting as a daemon.
These options override the corresponding options in the configuration file configfile.

If no configuration file is given, pppclient reads $HOME/.ssltunnelrc.

FILES

$HOME/.ssltunnelrc
  Default configuration file.
