PPPX(4) BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual PPPX(4)
pppx -- PPP multiplexer device
The pppx driver works with the npppd(8) daemon, allocating a network
interface for each Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) session by request from
the daemon. It also works with pipex(4) to accelerate the performance of
packet forwarding and supports ioctls which are added by pipex(4).
To use pppx from npppd(8) the administrator needs to configure the inter-
face configuration in npppd.conf(5). Also the administrator needs to
enable pipex(4) by setting net.pipex.enable to '1' using sysctl(8).
inet(4), inet6(4), pipex(4), hostname.if(5), npppd.conf(5), netstart(8),
The pppx driver first appeared in OpenBSD 5.3.
