Using and Managing PPP by Andrew Sun

This volume is for network administrators and others who have to set up computer systems to use PPP (Point-to-Point Protocol). It covers all aspects of the protocol, including how to set up dial-in servers, authentication, debugging and PPP options. In addition, it contains overviews of related areas, like serial communications, DNS setup, and routing. Topics include: configuring modems and serial links; how to set up dial-out and dial-in; PPP support in Solaris, Windows NT (client and server), and Windows 95 (client only); and related technologies that users need to understand.
