# The location of local options file (where ssh client is running).
# Note that the sample options file included in the distribution
# may need further customizations, depending on your needs. The 'noauth'
# option specified in the file is there to simplify the example, although
# some may choose to have it there and rely on ssh authentication
# instead.

# The location of remote options file (where sshd daemon is running)
# Note that the sample options file included in the distribution
# may need further customizations, depending on your needs. The 'noauth'
# option specified in the file is there to simplify the example, although
# some may choose to have it there and rely on ssh authentication
# instead. Also note that the remote options file need to include the 'notty'
# options for this to work.

# And execute pppd with the pty option, specifying ssh client as the
# slave side of the pseudo-tty master/slave pair. Note that on this example,
# ssh has been compiled to allow NULL encryption (thus the '-c none' option),
# but in reality, you'd probably want to specify the encryption algorithm.
# See the man page of ssh(1) for details.
