Uh-oh - someone has inadvertently taken the Micro$oft marketing hype pill!

Newsflash - there is NOT one "Windows" (or windoze in your case). "Windows"
is a marketing name for a vast range of completely different O/S's all
packaged and marketed to appear to be "compatible" - but they aren't!

If you want to know about PPP over SSH for windoze, you will really need to
specify which actual Micro$oft product you are wrestling - sorry, dealing -

For example CIPE does work with windoze, provided windoze is NT4.0 or 2000,
but not with 3.1, 95 or 98 (and I don't think it works with XP either).

In the case of PPP over SSH, I don't know if it will work with any Micro$oft
