Layer 2 tunneling protocol network server (lns)
l2tpns [-d] [-v] [-c file] [-h hostname]
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.
Detach from terminal and fork into the background. By default l2tpns will stay in the foreground.
Increase verbosity for debugging. Can be used multiple times.
Specify configuration file.
Force hostname to hostname.
The default configuration file.
IP address pool configuration.
Username/password configuration for access to admin interface.
Reload the config from disk and re-open log file.
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.
Shut down tunnels and sessions, exit process when complete.
