    5 This file needs to be redone to reflect tasks left after the 2.3.11
    6 update.

     6Notes from Mike Siers <mikes@poliac.com>
     7========================================

     9I know that several users have tried out this version of
     10pppd under RTEMS.  It has been successfully used as both
     11a client and server.  Below are the only issues that I
     12know of.
     13
     141) Large packet ping causes RTEMS box to lock up
     15   If you ping the RTEMS box over the ppp link with a packet
     16   size greater than 1500, the RTEMS box locks up.  I think
     17   the problem is in the pppd ethernet driver.
     18
     192) Upgrade the libnetworking/modem files
     20   This upgrade did not modify the ppp ethernet driver files
     21   in the libnetworking/modem directory.  Would like to
     22   upgrade these files.  Hopefully, it will fix the large
     23   packet ping problem.
     24
     253) The files cbcp.c and cbcp.h provide a callback feature
     26   that I have not tried to compile or use.  The files in
     27   this directory are identical to the 2.3.11 versions. 
     28   for completeness.

     31JOEL: Are the modifications to the original pppd such that the
     32      real maintainers will accept them?
     33
     34No.  The pppd 2.3.11 branch is an old branch.  The current
     35version is 2.4.x and it contains alot of extra items that
     36just did not make sense to have in an embedded environment.
     37I could make the RTEMS changes compatible with the standard
     382.3.11 release by using compilation flags.  I have not
     39contacted the maintainers to see if they are interested.
