Description: Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) daemon.
 The Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) provides a standard way to
 transmit datagrams over a serial link, as well as a standard
 way for the machines at either end of the link (the "peers")
 to negotiate various optional characteristics of the link.  Using
 PPP, a serial link can be used to transmit Internet Protocol (IP)
 datagrams, allowing TCP/IP connections between the peers.
