Description Christian Hechelmann 1999-12-31 01:36:09 UTC
I'm missing callback support in pppd (and the support that has to go with
it in the various scripts and rp3 and such). Anything planed?

Comment 1 Stephen John Smoogen 2003-01-24 23:17:37 UTC
ppp still does not support cbcp properly. The upstream maintainers seem to be
doing some work on it, but pppd-2.4.1 has been the latest release for some time.
It is unknown if or when a working implementation will be available.

Since previous patches to enable CBCP have broken the 7.2 pppd.. it is probably
a good idea to wait until a version of has a
working version in it.
