Share this with all; sell it to no one.
First, I just want to thank all the Linux programmers out there. Your contributions have made a difference. I hope this small contribution is useful to the Linux users out there.
I wrote this as a beginning for using Portslave with the Linux router project. It seems that Portslave is a widely used program with no documentation. Since I just dove into using Portslave I am sure this document can be improved by others over time. After several days of fighting Portslave I figured out how incredibly easy to use it really is.
The trouble I ran into most of the time was PAP Authentication failure. This was really tough thing to work out (I thought). I also had a few other errors, but if you follow this How To it should at least get you started (or start you to the insane asylum).
