Name ippool
Version 1.3
Summary An IP address pool manager
Description IpPool is implemented as a separate server daemon to allow any application to use its address pools. This makes it possible to define address pools that are shared by PPP, L2TP, PPTP etc. It may be useful in some VPN server setups. IpPool comes with a command line management application, ippoolconfig to manage and query address pool status. A pppd plugin is supplied which allows pppd to request IP addresses from ippoold.
