  Description: A text menu based utility for configuring ppp.
  It provides extensive explanations at each step.  pppconfig supports
  PAP, CHAP, and chat methods of authentication.  It uses the standard
  ppp configuration files and sets ppp up so that the standard pon and
  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.
  Task: dialup

  You could have done this research yourself in a few seconds and had
  results faster.
