PPPoE client and server suite

'rp-pppoe' is a PPPoE (Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet, a protocol used by many ADSL ISPs) client and server suite. It is fully RFC-compliant and supports cookies, relay-IDs, and multiple simultaneous PPPoE discovery phases. It is cleanly coded and fairly efficient, and supports kernel-mode PPPoE on Linux 2.4 and 2.6.
