Stopping the PPP Connection

To stop your PPP session, use the ppp-off script, found in the /etc/ppp directory. To use it, type the following:

# /etc/ppp/ppp-off

This script works by finding your network interface, ppp0, which you can test by using some of the programs in the next section and then using the kill command to kill the process ID of ppp0 (the kill command is discussed in the next hour).

If you're interested in the details on setting up other serial-line connections, such as Serial-Line IP, or SLIP, look under the /usr/doc/slip-login-2.1.2 directory.
