DESCRIPTION
       usernetctl checks to see if users are allowed  to  manipu-
       late  the  network  interface specified by interface-name,
       and then tries to bring the network interface up or  down,
       if  up  or  down  was  specified  on  the command line, or
       returns true or false status (respectively) if the  report
       option was specified.

              "ifcfg-ppp0"      and      "/etc/sysconfig/network-
              scripts/ifcfg-ppp0" are also supported.
