The extention for this recently released program doesn't allow a "ConnectPPP". The response keeps saying MacPPP not selected in TCP/IP panel. I wish to select FreePPP.  Any ideas. Is this a bug? Running MacOS with OT 1.1.2 on aperforma 5300/AV

Why not use OT/PPP? It's available free from the Apple site.

good point....ot/ppp on a powermac offers a speed increase anyway.

also to solve your "bug" open up the tcp/ip controll panel and choose, under the "connect via" popup menu, FreePPP. Then close the window, save and all that stuff. and connect the way you normally would.

(BTW as well as setting connect via to FreePPP also choose under the configure popup menu "using ppp server")

That is the point I'm trying to make: FreePPP IS selected in the TCP/IP control panel, the FreePPP extention does not see it that way.

Commented:
ahhh got it....well then go with doolys suggestion. use ot/ppp...its twice as reliable, faster, and stabler.
For the FreePPP 2.6.1b6 if you are upgraded from freePPP 2.5 then you TCP/IP can be changed to freePPP if originally you are us Apple Internet Connection Kit then upgraded to FreePPP then at the TCP/IP only can select MacPPP so please check it up.

I can select MacPPP in the TCP/IP panel and that is what the connection is made with, not the FreePPP I would like to use.I have solved my own problem, went back to FreePPP2.5.3 and will wait for non-beta!
