NAME

l2tpns - Layer 2 tunneling protocol network server (LNS)

SYNOPSIS

l2tpns [-d] [-v] [-c file] [-h hostname]

DESCRIPTION

l2tpns is a daemon for terminating layer 2 tunneling protocol (L2TP: RFC 2661) sessions.
Once running, l2tpns may be controlled by telnetting to port 23 on the machine running the daemon and with the nsctl utility.

OPTIONS

-d
Detach from terminal and fork into the background. By default l2tpns will stay in the foreground.
-v
Increase verbosity for debugging. Can be used multiple times.
-c file
Specify configuration file.
-h hostname
Force hostname to hostname.

FILES

/etc/l2tpns/startup-config
The default configuration file.
/etc/l2tpns/ip_pool
IP address pool configuration.
/etc/l2tpns/users
Username/password configuration for access to admin interface.

SIGNALS

SIGHUP
Reload the config from disk and re-open log file.
SIGTERM, SIGINT
Stop process. Tunnels and sessions are not terminated. This signal should be used to stop l2tpns on a cluster node where there are other machines to continue handling traffic.
SIGQUIT
Shut down tunnels and sessions, exit process when complete.
