Overview and Scope
This service definition is compliant with the UPnP Device Architecture version 1.0.
This service-type enables a UPnP control point to configure and
control PPP connections on the WAN interface of a UPnP compliant
The service is REQUIRED if a PPP connection is used for WAN access, and is specified in
one or more instances of which are specified under the device
An instance of WANDevice is specified under the root device
Generally, Internet connections are set up from a WAN interface
An instance of a WANPPPConnection service is activated (refer to SST below) for each actual Internet Connection instance on a WANConnectionDevice.WANPPPConnection service provides PPP-level connectivity with an ISP for networked clients on the LAN. More than one instance of WANPPPConnection service may be defined on a WANConnectionDevice - representing multiple user accounts using the same link (username / password) to an ISP.
Multiple instances of this service will be distinguished based on the ServiceID for each service instance.
In accordance with UPnP Architecture version 1.0, the maximum
number of WANPPPConnection service
instances is static and specified in
