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).
