Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) - development files

The Point-to-Point Protocol provides a standard way to transmit datagrams over a serial link, as well as a standard way for the machines at either end of the link to negotiate various optional characteristics of the link.

This package provides files needed to build pppd-related software.

Package version:2.4.5-4


ppp (2.4.5-4) unstable; urgency=low

  * Make sure to actually rebuild pppd for the udeb instead of using the
    just-built normal binary. (Closes: #591703)
  * Removed support for IPX from the udeb.
  * Added patch adaptive_echos: support sending LCP echo requests only if
    the link is idle. (Closes: #14331)
  * Updated debconf translation: pt_BR. (Closes: #592155)
  * Removed the suspend/resu


What's new in ppp-2.4.5.

* Under Linux, pppd can now operate in a mode where it doesn't request
  the peer's IP address, as some peers refuse to supply an IP address.
  Since Linux supports device routes as well as gateway routes, it's
  possible to have no remote IP address assigned to the ppp interface
  and still route traffic over it.

* Pppd now works better with 3G 


This is the Debian GNU/Linux prepackaged version of ppp.
