Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP)

Introduction

The Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) provides a standard method for transporting multi-protocol datagrams over point-to-point links. PPP is comprised of three main components:

  1. A method for encapsulating multi-protocol datagrams.
  2. A Link Control Protocol (LCP) for establishing, configuring, and testing the data-link connection.
  3. A family of Network Control Protocols (NCPs) for establishing and configuring different network-layer protocols.
