still uses pppd (kernel ppp), which for the major part is compatible
with linux pppd (although missing some features). You may have to make
pppd group-suid root.dailer and make your unprivileged users join the
I have been sucessfully running a pppd setup controlled by CGI I wrote
ages ago for Linux and easily ported to OpenBSD. Moving it to userspace
'ppp' really isn't worth the hassle.
