    I have a G4/933 with Tiger OSX 10.4.2

    With the PPP, I have to use a password to connect with the internet privider.

    When I place my password and I complete the settings, my password suddently change. My normal password has 6 bullets. When I complete my settings, there's 16 more bullets !!!

    What's wrong with that ?

    I can connect but the communication fails shortly (5-10 minutes) after I connect

    The appearing dots are normal. It's some kind of safety feature to make it harder to guess your password (by hiding the number of letters).
