JavaStation Client Software Guide

PPP-Modem Overview

Tower model computers contain enough flash random-access memory (RAM) to hold a bootable copy of the JavaOS binary file. On these JavaStation models, support for Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) and a modem dialer is included to enable the JavaStation computers to be deployed in a wide-area network (WAN) environment. PPP is not supported on brick model JavaStation computers because they have no flash RAM and must download the JavaOS software across the network each time they boot.
