PPP Daemon for Linux, Solaris 2, *BSD, SunOS 4, Digital Unix, SVR4, NeXTStep, and Ultrix. This allows Unix machines to connect to the internet through dialup lines, using the PPP protocol, as a PPP server or client. Works with 'chat', 'dip', and 'diald', among (many) others. Supports IP, TCP, UDP and (for Linux) IPX (Novell).
