The "Point to Point Protocol" is a transmission protocol that regulates the connection between a user's modem and the dial-up node of an ISP.
A communications protocol used with a modem that allows user computers to communicate with their local Internet Service Provider.
The successor protocol (RFC 1661) to SLIP; PPP provides a point-to-point connection between individual entities using either a synchronous or an asynchronous data link. One of its primary features is the ability for one side to configure the IP address of the other side.
The successor to SLIP, PPP provides router to router and host to network connections over both synchronous and asynchronous circuits.
These are standards for connecting to the Internet over an ordinary telephone line. To run a Windows or Macintosh graphical interface, you'll need a SLIP or PPP connection. PPP is the newer and better of the two standards.
Point to Point Protocol. One of the protocols that allows computers to connect to the Internet by using a telephone line and a modem.
This is one method for transmitting TCP/IP across telephone lines. PPP is used when you dial in to the Internet through your modem.
PPP is the most common facility for accessing the Internet via a dial up connection.
This is the protocol used to send data over serial lines. It is commonly used to send IP packets to the Internet, but it can also be used with other protocols such as Novell's IPX protocol. RAID
The mode of transport used to connect a computer to the Internet via a dial-up adapter (a modem).
A data link layer protocol designed for point-to-point links such as access links or core links of Wide Area Networks (WANs).
Most well known as a protocol that allows a computer to use a regular telephone line and a modem to make TCP/IP connections and connect to the Internet. See also Internet Protocol (IP) Address, Internet, Serial Line Internet Protocol (SLIP), Transmission Control Protocol/ Internet Protocol (TCP/IP).
The industry standard that is implemented in dial-up networking. PPP is a line protocol used to connect to remote networking services, including Internet Service Providers. Prior to the introduction of PPP, another line protocol, SLIP, was used.
