PPPDUMP(8)                  System Manager's Manual                 PPPDUMP(8)



NAME
       pppdump - convert PPP record file to readable format

SYNOPSIS
       pppdump [ -h | -p [ -d ]] [ -r ] [ -m mru ] [ file ...  ]

DESCRIPTION
       The  pppdump utility converts the files written using the record option
       of pppd into a human-readable format.  If one  or  more  filenames  are
       specified,  pppdump  will read each in turn; otherwise it will read its
       standard input.  In each case the result is written to standard output.

       The options are as follows:

       -h     Prints the bytes sent and received in hexadecimal.   If  neither
              this  option  nor  the  -p  option  is  specified, the bytes are
              printed as the characters themselves, with non-printing and non-
              ASCII characters printed as escape sequences.

       -p     Collects  the  bytes  sent and received into PPP packets, inter-
              preting the async HDLC framing and escape characters and  check-
              ing  the FCS (frame check sequence) of each packet.  The packets
              are printed as hex values and as characters (non-printable char-
              acters are printed as `.').

       -d     With  the  -p  option,  this option causes pppdump to decompress
              packets which have been  compressed  with  the  BSD-Compress  or
              Deflate methods.

       -r     Reverses the direction indicators, so that `sent' is printed for
              bytes or packets received, and `rcvd' is printed  for  bytes  or
              packets sent.

       -m mru Use mru as the MRU (maximum receive unit) for both directions of
              the link when checking for over-length PPP packets (with the  -p
              option).
