         Point-to-Point Protocol (Internet, PPP, RFC 1171/1661)
         

From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  Point-to-Point Protocol
  PPP
  
      (PPP) The protocol defined in
     RFC 1661, the Internet standard for transmitting network
     layer datagrams (e.g. IP packets) over serial
     point-to-point links.
  
     PPP has a number of advantages over SLIP; it is designed to
     operate both over asynchronous connections and bit-oriented
     synchronous systems, it can configure connections to a
     remote network dynamically, and test that the link is usable.
     PPP can be configured to encapsulate different network layer
     protocols (such as IP, IPX, or AppleTalk) by using the
     appropriate Network Control Protocol (NCP).
  
     RFC 1220 describes how PPP can be used with remote bridging.
