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).
