IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force) standard which provides a method for transmitting packets over serial point-to-point links. PPP is the successor protocol to SLIP and like SLIP allows dialup users to connect their home computers to the Internet as peer hosts. Like SLIP, PPP establishes the initial connection between your computer and your service provider's host system, but includes a more robust set of protocols than SLIP. PPP is more efficient than SLIP when using a high-speed modem (14.4 kbps or higher). PPP can also be more difficult to configure than SLIP. (See also SLIP, Service Provider, TCP/IP, Serial Line IP) WWWebfx Home Page
An Internet standard providing direct connections through telephone lines.
A scheme that is used to connect to the Internet over the phone line.
(PPP) A standard TCP/IP related protocol used to communication over a serial point-to-point link such as T-1 trunk between routers.
Protocol that lets the Aplio/Phone communicate over the Internet using TCP/IP and a standard telephone line.
A method of transmitting TCP/IP and other networking protocols over a dial-up or WAN connection.
An Internet standard for transmitting data over serial links between computers.
This protocol governs TCP/IP transmissions over serial modem connections.
Standard for using a modem & telephone line to connect to the Internet using TCP/IP.
The standard protocol for dial-up networking. The family of standards covers many aspects including authentication, encryption, compression, addressing, multi-protocols, etc., abbreviated as PPP.
A standard defined by the Internet Engineering Task Force. PPP provides a standard method for transporting multiple protocols over a point-to-point link.
In contrast to SLIP, a more recently established Internet communications protocol that standardizes dial-up networking using analog modem hardware and standard telephone lines. Although PPP is a well-standardized protocol, vendor implementations of PPP service can vary significantly. Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP) A newer networking protocol that remote users can use to access corporate networks securely across the Internet by dialing into an Internet Service Provider (ISP) or by connecting directly to the Internet. Because PPTP allows multiprotocol encapsulation, users can send any packet type over an IP network.
A common, layer two protocol used with Internet protocols and services.
(PPP) - A newer, more secure, and more easily configured technology than SLIP which accomplished, effectively, the same thing that SLIP does: it turns your modem-equipped computer into an Internet node.
A data linkprotocol that provides dial-up access over serial lines. It can run on any full-duplex link from POTS to ISDN to high-speed lines (T1, T3, etc.).
a protocol that provides a method for transmitting packets over serial point-to-point links. It is a standard for telephone modem communication between a user's personal computer and an Internet service provider (ISP). (p. 57)
An Internet protocol that provides a method for transmitting datagrams over serial point-to-point links.
Network protocol used when you have a modem; this protocol lets you use telnet, ftp, and e-mail services as if you were on campus, directly connected to DukeNet.
A protocol that is used for transferring packets over telephone lines.
Protocol to access the Internet using dial-up connections.
A protocol that provides a method for transmitting packets over serial point-to-point links. PPP is one of the most popular methods for dialup connections to the Internet, since it allows you to use other standard protocols (such as IPX, TCP/IP,) over a standard telephone connection, but it can also be used for LAN connections.
A protocol that allows a computer to use the TCP/IP (Internet) protocols (and become a full-fledged Internet member) with a standard telephone line and a high-speed modem. PPP is a new standard for this which replaces SLIP.
PPP. Successor to SLIP that provides router-to-router and host-to-network connections over synchronous and asynchronous circuits. Whereas SLIP was designed to work with IP, PPP was designed to work with several network layer protocols, such as IP, IPX, and ARA. PPP also has built-in security mechanisms, such as CHAP and PAP. PPP relies on two protocols: LCP and NCP.
A PPP is a protocol that provides a method for sending and receiving packets over serial point-to-point links.
A protocol for communication between two computers using a serial interface, typically a personal computer connected by phone line to a server. Essentially, it packages your computer's TCP/IP packets and forwards them to the server where they can actually be put on the Internet.
The standard Internet protocol for transmitting IP traffic over a serial point-to-point connection like a modem.
A data link protocol developed by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) for dial-up telephone connections, such as between a computer and the Internet. PPP provides greater protection for data integrity and security than does SLIP, at a cost of greater overhead.
a type of Internet protocol that uses the serial (COM) port connection.
The TCP/IP protocol that enables point to point connectivity to the Internet.
A protocol that allows a computer to use TCP/IP to connect to other computers over a standard phone line using a high-speed modem.
The Point-to-Point Protocol, defined in RFC 1171, provides a method for transmitting packets over serial point-to-point links. See also: Serial Line IP. [Source: FYI4
A protocol for using network protocols, including TCP/IP, over a dial-up modem connection or other serial line. You can transfer files with Fetch after you've established a connection to an Internet service provider that supports PPP (almost all do) using the PPP software included with Mac OS X.
(PPP) The protocol most commonly used for dial-up internet access.
A TCP/IP protocol that provides host-to-network and router-to-router connections. Can be used to provide a serial line connection between two machines.
A set of industry standard framing and authentication protocols. PPP negotiates configuration parameters for multiple layers of the OSI model.
Protocol used by TCP/IP routers and PCs to send packets over dial-up and leased-line connections.
A program that allows a computer to use a telephone line and modem to make TCP/IP connections.
A standardized Internet encapsulation of IP over point-to-point links.
The most common protocol used to connect home computers to the Internet. Used through a regular telephone line and a modem to make TCP/IP connections.
Dial-up connection rules for linking computers.
Communications protocol typically used to connect the reader directly to a computer or terminal. Data sent by the reader is followed by a carriage return and line feed (CR LF). XON/XOFF is supported. Point-to-Point protocol characters cannot be modified; however, the transmission parameters, such as parity and data bits, can be modified.
Point-to-Point Protocol is a protocol for transporting Internet Protocol (IP) traffic over point-to-point links.
An industry standard suite of protocols for the use of point-to-point links to transport multiprotocol datagrams. PPP is documented in RFC 1661. See also: Compression Control Protocol (CCP); remote access; Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP); voluntary tunnel
A protocol that allows dial-up users to connect to the Internet and use client software. PPP requires a regular telephone line and a modem to make TCP/IP connection and thus be, really and truly, on the Internet. See IP number, Internet, SLIP, and TCP/IP.
A method for transmitting packets over serial point-to-point links, such as a dial-up line. PPP is used by Internet Service Providers with dial-up connections but does not provide any data authentication or encryption.
In computing, the Point-to-Point Protocol, or PPP, is commonly used to establish a direct connection between two nodes. It can connect computers using serial cable, phone line, trunk line, cellular telephone, specialized radio links, or fiber optic links. Most Internet service providers use PPP for customers' dial-up access to the Internet.
