Classic Applications


Current Version: 2.6.2

(For older Macs. Note that the official FreePPP web site was eliminated on August 2, 2004, but the software remains available on the InfoMac archives.) FreePPP has a beautiful interface and lots of nifty features. More importantly, it is compatible with both Open Transport and virtual memory. FreePPP 2.6 is the favorite alternative to Apple's Open Transport PPP (below) and Remote Access (OS 9). Some people find better luck with one than the other. FreePPP offers far more configurability options than OT/PPP, and is easier to set up for use in multiple locations. Version 2.6.2 cleans up the code, fixes lots of bugs, and improves an already great product.

User Reviews

"This is an outstanding release of FreePPP; if you add the very small control panel you can place a connect menu in the Finder's menu. The interface is smart and clean, and the interaction with Open Transport is seamless and fast. Plus, it's all free."
—D. A. Dixit

"I use FreePPP (2.5v2) on 3 different Macs, and couldn't be happier. On my 6100 with Open Transport, it works great, on my PowerWave with Open Transport it works great, and on my 520c with Classic Networking, it works great, too. I love the Finder-Menu controls, and I don't think I could live without this software. And it's FREE!"
—Keegan Garrick

Also, if you have an older Mac, be sure to check out the "Classic" applications page for more options.

Finally, take a look at ALEMIA if you think you know that name of an application, but aren't quite sure.

Of Note . . .

No, I don't accept reviews anymore for these older applications. With the creation of this page in the Orchard's late 2005 redesign, I only accept reviews for currently-developed applications that work on Mac OS X (or later....whatever that might be!!).
