+Notes from Mike Siers <mikes@poliac.com>
+========================================
+
+I know that several users have tried out this version of
+pppd under RTEMS. It has been successfully used as both
+a client and server. Below are the only issues that I
+know of.
+
+1) Large packet ping causes RTEMS box to lock up
+ If you ping the RTEMS box over the ppp link with a packet
+ size greater than 1500, the RTEMS box locks up. I think
+ the problem is in the pppd ethernet driver.
+
+2) Upgrade the libnetworking/modem files
+ This upgrade did not modify the ppp ethernet driver files
+ in the libnetworking/modem directory. Would like to
+ upgrade these files. Hopefully, it will fix the large
+ packet ping problem.
+
+3) The files cbcp.c and cbcp.h provide a callback feature
+ that I have not tried to compile or use. The files in
+ this directory are identical to the 2.3.11 versions.
+ for completeness.
+
+
+JOEL: Are the modifications to the original pppd such that the
+ real maintainers will accept them?
+
+No. The pppd 2.3.11 branch is an old branch. The current
+version is 2.4.x and it contains alot of extra items that
+just did not make sense to have in an embedded environment.
+I could make the RTEMS changes compatible with the standard
+2.3.11 release by using compilation flags. I have not
+contacted the maintainers to see if they are interested.
