Description

PPPoE Monitor The main reason for developing PPPoE Monitor was the absence of any foreign and domestic tools for analyzing the data link layer (L2) to the Internet access provider. Currently Ethernet, ADSL, cable and other providers widely use the connection of end users via PPPoE protocol. The main disadvantage of such connection is a certain "secrecy" of this technology, because it is impossible to evaluate such important parameters as concentrator response time and amount of losses in the data link layer. PPPoE Monitor shows the provider's access hubs, response time (similar to the ping command, only at the data link layer), amount of packet losses and other parameters. Analysis of this information will help you make conclusions about the load of the data link layer and the quality of the physical layer of the OSI model, which are the basic components of quality Internet access. The second serious problem is the security of newly created PPPoE connections using the standard Windows wizard. Generally, ordinary users do not think about correct and secure settings of created connections, and Microsoft developers did not bother to disable PAP from "default settings", which can lead to password theft, because in this case the connections are stolen.
