Nuova minor release per il "demone" che si occupa di instaurare una connessione con protocollo ppp(chiamate a provider Internet)su macchine linux. Ecco i principali cambi dalla versione precedente: * The CHAP code has been rewritten. Pppd now has support for MS-CHAP V1 and V2 authentication, both as server and client. The new CHAP code is cleaner than the old code and avoids some copyright problems that existed in the old code. * MPPE (Microsoft Point-to-Point Encryption) support has been added, although the current implementation shouldn't be considered completely secure. (There is no assurance that the current code won't ever transmit an unencrypted packet.) * James Carlson's implementation of the Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) has been added. * Support for the Encryption Control Protocol (ECP) has been added. * Some new plug-ins have been included: - A plug-in for kernel-mode PPPoE (PPP over Ethernet) - A plug-in for supplying the PAP password over a pipe from another process - A plug-in for authenticating using a Radius server. * Updates and bug-fixes for the Solaris port. * The CBCP (Call Back Control Protocol) code has been updated. There are new options `remotenumber' and `allow-number'. * Extra hooks for plugins to use have been added. * There is now a `maxoctets' option, which causes pppd to terminate the link once the number of bytes passed on the link exceeds a given value. * There are now options to control whether pppd can use the IPCP IP-Address and IP-Addresses options: `ipcp-no-address' and `ipcp-no-addresses'. * Fixed several bugs, including potential buffer overflows in chat.Attenzione...effettuare la procedura di aggiornamento di ppp, solo se si è abbastanza padroni del proprio sistema operativo (GNU/Linux o altro), altrimenti attendere un aggiornamento dei pacchetti della vostra distribuzione.
