Control PPP works with all current versions of PPP, even if you switch among them without restarting. It combines the features of all the other control strips in one simple module.
Unlike some other control strip throughput meters, this one is smoothed and doesn't jump around with every byte received. It's a stand-alone application and doesn't require any extensions, scripting additions, installers or similar baggage. It's carefully optimised to use as little CPU time as possible.

PPP Compatibility: Control PPP supports: Open Transport 1.1.1 or better, or MacTCP 2.0 or better. All versions of MacPPP, FreePPP, OT/PPP and Remote Access PPP available at the time of writing. You can even switch between them without restarting. For best performance the authors recommend: Open Transport 1.3 or better, or MacTCP 2.0.6. FreePPP 2.6 or better, or OT/PPP 1.0.1 or better, or Remote Access PPP 3.0 or better. Control PPP runs Power PC native if you're using Extensions Strip 1.2 or greater. It monitors OT/PPP directly, using an efficient, asynchronous C interface for optimum performance.
