Thanks for your support.
I didn't know it doesn't support PPP server. Any plans to add PPP server? What
needs be done in order to support PPP server?

This is kind of unusual, since our PPP stack only supports PPP client the IP
address is usually given by the server. If you really need this we can add
macro to set the necessary field in the PPP neg-configuration.

It mostly depends on which lower level protocol you wish to use, PPPoS, PPPoE
or PPPoL2TP, I am sure I already provided hints on this list which should be on
the list archive.
Anyway, this isn't hard, the API is fully documented in headers and should be
explanatory enough to give you the way to proceed.
If you really need an example, you can checkout the ppp-new branch of the
contrib Git repository, it contains my quick'n'dirty source code I use to test
the ppp-new branch in "lwip-contrib/ports/unix/proj/minimal".
