5This directory contains a port of ppp-2.3.5.  The official site for
6the original source for this PPP implementation is:

8ftp://cs.anu.edu.au/pub/software/ppp

10NOTE:  As of 11/30/1999, the current version of this source is 2.3.10.

12The port was performed by Tomasz Domin <dot@comarch.pl> of ComArch SA
13and has only been tested on the mpc823.  The modem driver should
14work with minor modifications on other systems.

16Some comments:
17
18+ "SetStatusInfo is a function which displays given message on
19  bottom side of the screen."
20
21  The issue of how to deal with SetStatusInfo in a generic, portable
22  fashion is still open.
23
24+ "Dialer returns positive integer when an error occurs, and negative one
25  which is parsed from modem aswer, when connection is done (for example
26  -28000 if connection speed is 28000 baud ...)"
27
28+   PPP_User/PPP_Password
29   "When this field is set, it is sent to the server when there is need
30   to login ....
31   When it is blank - it is using other method of authentification ... or
32   none ...
33   PPP_Password is also used in CHAT and PAP  - because there is no
34   configuration files in RTEMS ..."
35
36   This falls into the general question of how to generally configure this.
37
38+ ConnectionStatus
39
40  This is the method of synchronization between pppd task and others.
41  ConnectionStatus field is set by pppd - when connection occurs it`s state
42  is set to Connected. WantConnection is set by client application (and
43  the appriopriate event is sent then) so pppd knows what user wants to do ...
44
45+ Around line 270 of main.c, there is code to change the default
46  nameserver... why?
47
48  Becouse in my application user can change it anytime  ... - without need of
49  rebooting the system
50  When PPP connection is configured there is needed additional info about
51  nameservers - PPP layer cant discover them itself
