    What ever happened to Solstice PPP? It had a gui, was easy
    to set up, and worked fine (at least for me with a Solaris 8
    notebook with a PCMCIA modem). Much easier to deal with than
    asppp! In the old days you had to buy it but later it was
    free.

    It's here:

    [url]http://wwws.sun.com/software/ppp/[/url]

    Solstice PPP isn't related to 'asppp' or to the new Solaris PPP 4.0
    that replaces 'asppp'. While Solstice PPP 3.0.1 does include the
    graphical interface, it doesn't include IPv6, CCP data compression,
    PPPoE, MS compatibility features (MS-CHAPv1 and MS-CHAPv2, MS
    callback, MS DNS options, ACCM bug workarounds), FCS negotiation, LCP
    Identification, or plugin interface.
