FreePPP 1.0.5 Available

Send Article to a Friend

FreePPP 1.0.5 Available -- Steve Dagley has released version 1.0.5 of FreePPP, which now scrambles stored passwords (although it doesn't encrypt them), uses resource-based strings for tone and pulse dial commands (for folks with ISDN terminal adapters who may need to modify the strings), and fixes a few bugs. Steve expects version 2.5 of FreePPP to be available in March, so if you don't need features or fixes in 1.0.5, it's probably fine to stick with your current PPP configuration. [GD]
