PPPDUMP(8)               (1 April 1999)                PPPDUMP(8)

     NAME
          pppdump - convert PPP record file to readable format

     SYNOPSIS
          pppdump [ -h | -p [ -d ]] [ -r ] [ -a ] [ -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,
               interpreting the async HDLC framing and escape charac-
               ters and checking the FCS (frame check sequence) of
               each packet.  The packets are printed as hex values and
               as characters (non-printable characters 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.

          -a   Prints absolute times.

          -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).
