The Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP), RFC 1661

The Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) provides a standard method for transporting multi- protocol datagrams over point-to-point links. PPP is comprised of three main components: 1) A method for encapsulating multi- protocol datagrams. 2) A Link Control Protocol (LCP) for establishing, configuring, and testing the data-link connection. 3) A family of Network Control Protocols (NCPs) for establishing and configuring different network-layer protocols.
