The BeOS fully supports TCP/IP connections over PPP. PPP is simply another interface option in the Network preferences application.

Complete instructions for configuring and using a PPP interface are available the BeOS User's Guide, Chapter 3 Connecting to the Internet With BeOS, in the section Network Interfaces for Modem Connections.

We have also written some PPP troubleshooting guidelines that may help you if you are having difficulties, and there are additional PPP-related answers in the FAQ section of the web site.
