OpenL2TP is a complete implementation of RFC2661 - Layer Two Tunneling
Protocol Version 2, able to operate as both a server and a client. It
is ideal for use as an enterprise L2TP VPN server, supporting more
than 100 simultaneous connected users. It may also be used as a client
on a home PC or roadwarrior laptop.
OpenL2TP has been designed and implemented specifically for Linux. It
consists of
- a daemon, openl2tpd, handling the L2TP control protocol exchanges
for all tunnels and sessions
- a plugin for pppd to allow its PPP connections to run over L2TP
- a Linux kernel driver for efficient datapath (integrated into the
standard kernel from 2.6.23).
- a command line application, l2tpconfig, for management.
