Leonard:

I may be mistaken, but believe A-Z uses ppp. Should be a straightforward
procedure using that protocol.

I know I set up my niece's laptop with A-Z this summer running MDK and did
use ppp. Perhaps they have changed to pap or chap? I somehow doubt it. Let
usa know what happens.

Cheerio,

DRO
