FreePPP 2.5v2

Send Article to a Friend

FreePPP 2.5v2 -- Last week, the FreePPP Group released FreePPP 2.5v2, replacing version 2.5rf. Although the release offers no new features, it does contain a number of significant bug fixes, and users of Global Village modems may be particularly interested in the upgrade. However, the old adage of PPP on the Macintosh still holds true - if what you're using now works fine, there's no need to upgrade. FreePPP 2.5v2 is available from Info-Mac mirrors; if you want to delve into the guts of FreePPP, check out the FreePPP FAQ. [GD]
