Install on CentosΒΆ

For compile with modules vlan_mon and ipoe on centos need install vanilla linux kernel or Install kernel from elrepo . If that not needed, just set -DBUILD_IPOE_DRIVER=FALSE and -DBUILD_VLAN_MON_DRIVER=FALSE on cmake.


Before compile and build package need satisfy some dependencies

  • rpm-build - open-source system that manages the build process
  • cmake - open-source system that manages the build process
  • gcc - GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) is a compiler system
  • git - version-control system for tracking changes, (need for downloading source code)
  • pcre-devel - source code of pcre lib, accel-ppp need it for use reg expression
  • openssl-devel - source code of lib ssl, accel-ppp need it for use regular expression
  • lua-devel - this need for create custom username (IPoE) from packet. Script write on lua language
yum -y install rpm-build make cmake gcc git pcre-devel openssl-devel lua-devel

After install dependencies, download accel-ppp source code with git client, tree master . Master tree contain actual patches last release.

git clone /opt/accel-ppp-code

Create directory for build source code and go to this directory.

mkdir /opt/accel-ppp-code/build
cd /opt/accel-ppp-code/build/

For building code need we can set next params:

  • -DBUILD_IPOE_DRIVER=TRUE include IPoE module.This module need if you want use accel-ppp as shared interface.
  • -DBUILD_VLAN_MON_DRIVER=TRUE include vlan monitoring module. If you want create vlan automatically on analyse IP headers with regular expression set on accel-ppp config file. (Available for IPoE and PPPoE)
  • -DKDIR=/usr/src/kernels/`uname -r` sets path to Linux kernel source code. Need only for build IPOE, VLAN-MON.
  • -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr path for install executable code. If you build DEB package, not recommended change this.
  • -DCPACK_TYPE=Centos7 this arguments for building RPM package. If used centos other version, set it.


ended symbols .. sets path to accel-ppp source code, not delete this! Or you can replace it full path to accel-ppp-code like /opt/accel-ppp-code/



Create RPM package:

cpack -G RPM

Install package:

rpm -ivh accel-ppp.rpm

If accel-ppp was build with modules ipoe and vlan_mon, need next:

cp ./drivers/ipoe/driver/ipoe.ko /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/net
cp ./drivers/vlan_mon/driver/vlan_mon.ko /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/net
depmod -a

If you have success packet install, rename config file to accel-ppp.conf

mv /etc/accel-ppp.conf.dist /etc/accel-ppp.conf

Edit accel-ppp.conf for you schemas and run accel-ppp

Run as systemd unit:

systemctl start accel-ppp

or run manual (not recommended)

accel-pppd -d -c /etc/accel-ppp.conf -p /var/run/
