Seth, I am using FreePPP 2.5.3 and OS 7.6.1 with the latest OT and still
get problems letting the V2 client open the connection.  Most of the
problem is in the closing end.  After disconnecting, the connection goes
to an actual DNS # ( was the last one) instead of
<supplied by server>.  This seems to be a problem with
TCP/IP......should I leave TCP/IP on all the time or only "as needed"?
