Open Mouth, Insert MacPPP

Send Article to a Friend

Open Mouth, Insert MacPPP -- Our short deadline bit us last week. We published Orren Merton's note about Open Transport problems in which he noted originally that MacPPP 2.1.1SD included some fixes for problems that MacPPP has with Open Transport. Unfortunately, as we were finishing the issue, MacPPP 2.2.0 came out, claiming to include all the fixes to MacPPP 2.0.1. Because of that claim, it inappropriately replaced MacPPP 2.1.1SD in the Info-Mac Archive, leaving us with no working URL for MacPPP 2.1.1SD and an incorrect impression of MacPPP 2.2.0 as well, since as Steve Dagley (the SD in MacPPP 2.1.1SD) said, the 2.2.0 version did not actually include the Open Transport fixes. Sorry for the confusion, and Open Transport users can get MacPPP 2.1.1SD at the URL below. We're still trying to get a handle on the versions of MacPPP and find out the real story. [ACE]
