Hi,

  I was looking at the file /proc/net/dev and I saw this:
 face |packets errs drop fifo frame|packets errs drop fifo colls carrier
    lo:      0    0    0    0    0       14    0    0    0     0    0
 dummy: No statistics available.
  ppp0:    299    0    0    0    0      395    0    0    0     0    0
  ppp1:      0    0    0    0    0        0    0    0    0     0    0
  ppp2:      0    0    0    0    0        0    0    0    0     0    0
  ppp3:      0    0    0    0    0        0    0    0    0     0    0
   sl0:      0    0    0    0    0        0    0    0    0     0    0
   sl1:      0    0    0    0    0        0    0    0    0     0    0
   sl2:      0    0    0    0    0        0    0    0    0     0    0
   sl3:      0    0    0    0    0        0    0    0    0     0    0
  eth0:   4122    0    0    0    0     3779    0    0    0     3    0

so I believe that I can only 4 ppp connection. I'd like to know if I can have
more than 4 and How can I do this.

Thanks in advance.

1. How to config more than 4 ppp interfaces in kernel ?

    Hi,
    I have a Linux box that is being used to offer telecommuting for our
employees and I need to increase the number of ppp interfaces in the
kernel from the 4 that are default to 8.  The kernel configuration offers
the option to increase the number of slip sl interfaces, but not
the ppp interfaces.  I have looked in the kernel code (I'm running 1.2.11)
and it looks like it is possible to increase the number of interfaces,
but I am not exactly sure what needs to be done.  I would be grateful if
someone could tell me what I must do to increase the number of ppp
interfaces in the kernel.
            Thanks !
