PPP is a level 2 protocol and supports whatever you can do with an
ethernet card. It is a IETF standard for providing packet based
networking over a serial line.

Yeah, my concern was more if the ppp daemon would cope with IPv4 and
IPv6 at the same time. I know can run multiple instances of pppd, but
AFAICT, my provider does not allow concurrent PPP logins with the same

handle. The problem is that consumer level routers don't support IPv6,
at least in routing & NAT functions.

Yeah, thats why I started looking at running the ADSL box in bridge
