PPP over Ethernet Protocol by Robert Schlabbach
We are receiving many questions concerning Microsoft Vista® and Windows 7® but due to built-in PPPoE driver in Vista® and Windows 7®
and major differences in the internal architecture a Version of RASPPPoE for Vista® and Windows 7® would require a
complete redesign. We apologize that currently there are no plans for a Vista® and Windows 7® Version.
This is a PPP over Ethernet (short: PPPoE) implementation for Microsoft Windows®. PPPoE as a method for establishing PPP connections through Ethernet adapters is described in RFC 2516 and is used by many Internet Service Providers to allow authentication and maintain the familiar "dial-up experience" when connecting to the Internet through a broadband modem, mostly ADSL.
After the very successful and stable version 0.98b we now offer the new version 0.99beta which includes an AMD64 version for Windows x64 Editions, supporting AMD's AMD64 as well as Intel's EM64T CPUs.
Reports on successful use and potential problems are greatly appreciated although we ask for your understanding that we can answer only in very limited cases.
