It provides extensive explanations at each step.  pppconfig supports
PAP, CHAP, and chat methods of authentication.  It uses the standard

poff commands can be used to control ppp.
Some features supported by pppconfig are:
- Multiple ISPs with separate nameservers.
- Modem detection.
- Dynamic DNS.
- Dial on demand.

pppconfig (2.3.22) unstable; urgency=medium
* QA upload.
* debian/rules: Drop "po/update.sh". Running it only once
before creating the source package will do fine.
This should help to make the build reproducible.
* po/update.sh: Create po/LINGUAS.
* debian/rules: Use it and perform some cleanup.
* messages.mo: Remove, as it's just an old version of po/zh_TW.po.
[ Américo Monteiro ]
* Added Portuguese manpage. Closes: #759112.

pppconfig (2.3.21) unstable; urgency=low
* QA upload
* Fixed Maintainer field to contain correct QA group address
* Fixed start sequence in dns-clean LSB header
(thanks to Jon Severinsson)
* Don't require start of $remote_fs in dns-clean init script,
it has to run before that. Override lintian error, when /usr
is on a remote location, pppconfig can not do anything and is
useless in that scenario (init script simply exit then).
* Install and enable systemd units for dns-clean
* Fixed a few lintian warnings
* Updated Czech translation (Closes: #675575)
(thanks to Miroslav Kure)
