Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP (Point-to-Point Protocol) The most popular method for transporting IP packets over a serial link between the user and the ISP. Developed in 1994 by the IETF and superseding the SLIP protocol, PPP establishes the session between the user's computer and the ISP using ) and Serial Line Internet Protocol (communications, protocol) Serial Line Internet Protocol - (SLIP) Software allowing the Internet Protocol (IP), normally used on Ethernet, to be used over a serial line, e.g. an EIA-232 serial port connected to a modem. It is defined in RFC 1055. (SLIP) bundled into a single, high-performance VxD driver. Novell's Netware IPX/SPX See IPX. client software is also included. When used as an integrated package, TCP/IP, IPX/SPX and PPP/SLIP can sustain serial line performance of 115 kilobits per second (unit) kilobits per second - (kbps, kb/s) A unit of data rate where 1 kb/s = 1000 bits per second. This contrasts with units of storage where 1 Kb = 1024 bits (note upper case K). .
