Whose PPP/PAP is the best?

Post by Richard P. Mulle » Wed, 19 Feb 1997 04:00:00

I'm planning on installing some version of Linux on a Pentium computer.
I'm most concerned about getting PPP/PAP running easily, especially
after reading the problems that people have reported on this group.

My question is, whose PPP/PAP is easist to install? I'm trying to chose


Who has the best PPP? Opinions? I've heard lots of good things about
Redhat, so I'm probably leaning that way.

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

1. PPP setup. Whose recipe is best?


Please shed some light in my gloom...

I have a couple of customers and need to connect from my machine to
theirs (one at a time) with PPP. It would also be nice if their machines
could call mine and tell me if anything were going wrong, but that would
be icing on the cake.

I'm running Solaris2.6 on an E450.

I've looked around and there seem to be loads of recipes for setting up
PPP, all slightly different, and to a newbie the subtle distinctions are
lost on me..

Advice please. Whose recipe is best?

Many thanks in anticipation,
