Teleport Platinum and MacPPP

Attempting to get a Global Village Teleport Platinum and MacPPP to work on a friends Performa 575. It will dial and
connect (and send data) but at end when mouse is clicked anywhere the computer freezes. Using System 7.1P. 24 Megs RAM. Even took off the GV extension just in case it was conflicting. Still freezes when click in MacPPP OpenPPP control panel after connection is established. Are MacPPP and modem incompatable? Some info I saw on web hint at this. Looking for more details. Will I have to go to FreePPP? Is problem possibly with System 7.1P and need to go to 7.5 or later?

It could be some other Extension conflict, or plainly MacPPP uses too mush System ram,
try using FreePPP, it seemes to have much less bugs.

24MB RAM should be adequate.

Upgrade to OS 7.5.5. (See if you can buy the OS 7.5.x CD for your machine from Apple -- 1-800-SOS-APPLE.)

Go to Apple's site at www.apple.com, and get Open Transport 1.1.2 and OT PPP, which is much easier to use than MacPPP.

Configuration is straitforward, but I you have trouble, email me at dooly@hooked.net
