Latest release - v026

After years of inactivity,
I am proud to announce the release of v026.

This release is a drawback from the version number point of view, however,
it is made for compliance with older or less bloated systems (no 'host' is used - removing dependency on BIND tools installation, for obtaining the default gateway we now use 'route' - no need for 'iproute2' packages).

GPL copy is now included, PPTP is a GPLed package.... read more

v030 - no DHCP client dependancy!

This release doesn't use the DHCP client leases file to ge t the default gateway ip address! It uses the 'ip' util for that now.
This will need testing under different distributions...
Try it!

the v022 suppose to help with disconnections!

The v022 has a 'persist' pppd option added.
Supposedly it will make pppd try connecting again if the link fails for some nuber & period of time.
Try if this really does it...
