8.1 How do I learn more?

The Linux Documentation Project book called Linux Network Administrator's Guide by Olaf Kirch is pretty mandatory for anyone that will set up and maintain anything involving TCP/IP and Internet

The documentation that follows each software package will normally give you all the detailed information you need, if not always the overview. The man-pages will be the first place to look. Try for instance:

man pppd

You will also find some documentation about certain programs in the /usr/doc tree, although this is not always well structured.

The following HOWTOs will be highly relevant:

Red Hat has a mailing list for PPP issues; to join send an email to

redhat-ppp-list-request with the subject line
