Using pppd from the command line - ttyname syntax?

Got questions? Go ahead: Ask me anything!

Author: ReflectiveTurtle

I'm trying to establish a PPTP VPN connection from a command line using pppd on a Mac OS X 10.4.1 system.

My machine has a full time connection to the internet via a cable modem, so no dial-up is required.

What is the correct syntax to use for the "ttyname" on the pppd command line for it to use this link?

Neither "en0" nor "/dev/en0" work.

Do I need to specify any other serial link parameters? (speed, baud, ...?)

Thanks

I couldn't find much on that. The closest thing I found was (link) which doesn't sound like what you want.
