pppoe-wrapper − SUID wrapper for starting and stopping PPPoE connections.
pppoe-wrapper start linkname
pppoe-wrapper stop linkname
pppoe-wrapper status linkname
pppoe-wrapper is a small SUID program which allows non-root users to start and stop PPPoE links. It operates as follows:
First, linkname is sanity-checked. Too-long names and names containing illegal characters are rejected.
Second, pppoe-wrapper opens the file /etc/ppp/rp-pppoe-gui/conf.linkname for reading. If that file does not contain the line:
then pppoe-wrapper fails.
Otherwise, pppoe-wrapper runs pppoe-start, pppoe-stop or pppoe-status with the above filename as its single argument.
