DESCRIPTIONwmppp.app displays a dynamic representation of the load on the PPP line on a 64x64 miniwindow. It also starts and stops the connection and displays the time enlapsed since the it came up. The traffic on the interface is also monitored.
- -display <display name>
- name of display to use
- -geometry +XPOS+YPOS
- initial window position
- sets the on-line timer to display MM:SS instead of the default HH:MM.
- -u <update rate>
- sets the frequency, in seconds, for updates to the display. Valid range is 1-10, default value is 5.
- -i <device>
- choose the net device (ppp1, ippp0, etc.) to monitor. (Note that this feature is EXPERIMENTAL and should be used with caution. Bug reports are welcomed.)
- -speed <cmd>
- command to report connection speed
- -start <cmd>
- command to connect
- -stop <cmd>
- command to disconnect
- -ifdown <cmd>
- command to redial
- -stampfile <path>
- file used to calculate uptime
- displays a command line summary
- displays the version number.
CONFIGURATIONThe configuration file (see below) may contain any of the following key-value pairs. The format is key: value. Note that these values will be overwritten by the corresponding command line options.
- The program that starts the connection
- The program that stops the connection
- This program reports the speed of the connection. This program should output <speed>, that is, a number is expected and not the whole
- This program is run if the line goes down, and the stop program hasn't been run. (Redial program)
- The modification time of this file is used to calculate the amount of time the connection has been up. Something like touch <stampfile> should be run for this to work.
- this is the stamp file use to determine the amount of time enlapsed since the connection came up. This file should be managed by the ip-up and ip-down scripts. On Debian systems, /etc/ppp/ip-up.d/00wmppp creates the file, and /etc/ppp/ip-down.d/00wmppp removes it.
- System wide defaults
- User defined settings
- System wide fixed options, this overrides the user settings
