DESCRIPTIONThis manual page documents briefly the pppstatus command. This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.
pppstatus is a console-based utility for displaying the status of a PPP link, including connection verification, connecting time, costs calculation, top speed, e-mail check, ip address, graphical statistics, TX and RX leds, interface selection, and more. It even supports xDSL with pppoe.
There are two config for pppstatus: /etc/pppstatus/pppstatus.cfg which is always read first, and ~/.pppstatus/pppstatus.cfg which is read when the user is not root.
For further hints see /usr/share/doc/pppstatus/README.
