Re: PPP & Compression: Useful or Useless?

Note that most modems these days make V.42 compression, which is LZW.
BSD compression would be redundant.

Van Jacobsen compression is, however, good to use on a V.42 connection.
It takes advantage of the redundancy of frame information in a point-to-point
connection from one packet to the next to reduce the size of the header.
