Hi, everyone,

RP-PPPoE 3.11 is available at http://www.roaringpenguin.com/products/pppoe

Changelog follows.



Changes from Version 3.10 to 3.11:

o Make the rp-pppoe.so plugin avoid calling exit() if the "persist" pppd
  option was given.

o Permit both PPPoE server and client to specify an MTU/MRU of 1500 assuming
  the underlying Ethernet interface has an MTU of at least 1508.  The larger
  MTU is negotiated per RFC 4638.  NOTE: Only available with kernel-mode
  plugin, not user-mode pty redirector.

o Get rid of hard-coded nobsdcomp, nodeflate, novj and novjccomp options
  in pppoe-server.

o Apply patch from Philip Prindeville to allow cross-compiling.

o Handle UNIT=xxx directive in pppoe-connect. (Keith Waters)

o Add "-i" flag to pppoe-server to ignore PADIs if there are no free sessions.
  Change suggested by Miroslav Lednicky.

o Ignore PADTs not destined for our ethernet address.

o Add "-X <pidfile>" option to pppoe-server.

o Cleanup Makefile.in. (Philip Prindeville)

o In plugin, don't set devnam if it's already set. (Mike Ireton)

o Eliminate race condition in signal handling.

o pppoe-server: Add -q and -Q options to allow specification of path to
  pppd and pppoe programs respectively.

o Add a few more sanity checks to pppoe-server packet handling.

o Use -fno-strict-aliasing when compiling with gcc to avoid possible problems
  from -O2 optimization level.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
