my remarks here nodoubt come out of left field, and are not related to any
of the original discussion, but in the Ethereal Team, we have a problem
with PPP over serial ports.
The problem is that we do not get to see any of the PPP 'frames', we only
see IP datagrams.
If there is a rewrite or big changes coming for 2.3, has any thought been
given to providing a way to inject raw frames into the appropriate places
in the kernel so libpcap can capture them, and thus we can see them in
I hope that this is not too far off from your interests.
