ppp - point to point protocol network interface
pseudo-device ppp [count]
The ppp interface allows serial lines to be used as network interfaces using the Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP). A ppp interface can be created at runtime using the ifconfig pppN create command or by setting up a hostname.if(5) configuration file for netstart(8). The ppp interface can use various types of compression and has many features over the SLIP protocol used by the sl(4) interface.
ppp%d: af%d not supported The interface was handed a message with ad- dresses formatted in an unsuitable address family; the packet was dropped.
