Mon Jan 25 19:41:03 PST 1999 — The elimination of the requirement to use the .ppp suffix to request PPP access is complete. Per the MOTD entry of Jan 14, this only affects direct dialup shell users. Please see the previous entry for more details.
If you use PPP or telnet, you won’t notice any immediate change. However, users no longer need to add the .ppp to their login name when connecting via PPP, so this should make setting up with Sonic easier. If you’re currently using the .ppp, there’s no need to eliminate it however, both methods work. -Dane
