NAME

l2tpd - Layer 2 Tunnelling Protocol Daemon

CONTENTS

DESCRIPTION

A Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol VPN client/daemon for Linux and other POSIX-based OSs. Based off of L2TPd 0.61 from http://www.marko.net/l2tp

l2tpd implements the Layer 2 Tunnelling Protocol, defined by RFC 2661.

OPTIONS

-D This option prevents l2tpd from detaching from the terminal and daemonizing. This is recommended for the moment as the code that detaches from the terminal and daemonizes is not yet perfected.

-c <config file>
  Tells l2tpd to use an alternate config file. Default is /usr/local/etc/l2tp/l2tpd.conf

-s <secret file>
  Tells l2tpd to use an alternate "secrets" file. Default is /usr/local/etc/l2tp/l2tp-secrets

-p <pid file>
  Tells l2tpd to use an alternate pid file. Default is /var/run/l2tpd.pid

FILES

/usr/local/etc/l2tp/l2tpd.conf /usr/local/etc/l2tp/l2tp-secrets /var/run/l2tp-control
