o Much improved dialing and modem handling: kppp is now ROCK-SOLID on my

and describe the problems you are experiencing. Also, see the Makefile
for instructions on how to have kppp give you more debugging info.
o Finally: kppp accepts commandline options! For the impatient, you
can have kppp start dialing immediately after start-up
For full help functionality you need "kdehelp" from the kde project.
For further info about kppp plese review the files in the docs
directory. For installation instructions read INSTALL.
There is still much to be done, however I believe you will find kppp
very useful already !
happy dialing !
