Seriously? It cant be that simple. The +++ sequence occurs commonly, and
that alone would cause trouble. Does pppd routinely escape that sequence?
As I read it, the '+++' only works when the line is silent before and
after for a minimum time. Which would never happen with PPP.
It would be a major bug in a modem to ignore that requirement.
lets google .... Gad! It really is possible. This link explains:
Was Rick's code contrived to exploit a weakness in a particular brand?
So what evil kludge of a modem actually hung up on the '+++' ?
