Definitions for "Point-to-Point Protocol"
Keywords:  ppp, serial, tcp, multiprotocol, modem
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
