What is Point to Point Protocol (PPP)?
- PPP connects a computer to the Internet over telephone lines.
- Programs communicate to the PPP software using a standard method.
(WINSOCK for Windows, MacTCP for Macintosh).
- You can use the same programs with PPP as you would with other
Internet connection methods (Ethernet, T1 lines, etc.)
- Not like "all-in-one" packages. You can pick and choose which
programs you want to use.
