 If you are refering to /etc/ppp/ppp.conf.filter.sample then
 this file has nothing to do with pppd or the ppp interfaces.

 This is a sample configuration file for iijppp (aka userppp)
 which uses the tunnel devices (ie tun0, tun1..)

: Is there a FAQ?

 "man ppp" should help for userlevel ppp.  As for filtering with
  pppd (aka kernel ppp) I'm not sure.  Try a "man pppd" and if
  its not described in there try a "man ipfw".

  Do not fall into the trap that because you have enabled
  some filtering that you have secured your system :)
