PPP

In the newer PPP (Point to Point Protocol), a number of changes were incorporated to address the limitations of SLIP. This protocol supports the following:

PPP doesn’t care if the connection is dedicated or switched; however it does require the connection to be full duplex in operation.

SLIP is dead. Long live PPP

Synchronous or Asynchronous connections

Multiple network protocols

Link quality testing and error correction

Data compression

PPP supports multiple protocols

Both sides must use the SAME protocol

A common mistake in the real world is to not check a remote connection to see if both sides are setup for SLIP or PPP. This makes this a valid test question.

PPP is more versatile than SLIP

PPP
supports connections higher than 56Kb/sec and multiple network protocols like IPX/SPX in addition to TCP/IP.


Microsoft’s RAS Server software accepts incoming connections from dial-up users running PPP, and PPP is probably the most popular protocol supported by Microsoft Windows Dial Up Networking clients.
