New Package: ppp 2.2.0f-17
Maintainer: Christoph Lameter <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Suggests: mgetty (>=0.99)
Description: Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) daemon.
The Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) provides a standard way to
transmit datagrams over a serial link, as well as a standard
way for the machines at either end of the link (the "peers")
to negotiate various optional characteristics of the link. Using
PPP, a serial link can be used to transmit Internet Protocol (IP)
datagrams, allowing TCP/IP connections between the peers.
This ppp implements the following special features (folded in from the
former isp-ppp package):
- Remote DNS Server Configuration for Microsoft Clients and compat.
- Remote WINS Server Configuration for Microsoft Clients amd compat.
- Bug Fix to accomodate incoming buggy Winsock PPPs (Trumpet Winsock) dialup
- Logs to LOG_LOCAL2 so that the ppp logs are completely separate.
Together with mgetty-0.99 this package will allow extremely easy dialup
configuration for Win95, NT or Win3.11 with IE 3.0. The user simply has
to type your phone number, username and password and the webbrowser will
work! No strange IP numbers to configure for the customer.
