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 doesnt 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
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.
Microsofts 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.
