I'm running 2.4.0-test8 and I was able to reach all four of the above sites
using kppp 2.0pre18. My starter distribution is Linux-Mandrake 7.2 beta 1.

When I ran make xconfig, I left the "networking options" section alone. In
the "network device support" section, I said yes to PPP support, PPP support
for async serial, and PPP deflate compression.

The bottom line is, 2.4.0-test8 works for me with this setup. I didn't
see any options which would enable/disable ECN, but perhaps I overlooked
something. I did grep for ECN in Documentation and Documentation/networking,
but just turned up entries for DECNET. And yes, I did a uname -r to make sure
that I really was running 2.4.0-test8.

Offtopic for this thread, I'm using ReiserFS 3.6.14 with the
reiserfs-3.6.14-test8-pre5 patch which seems to work for test8 final. So
far, so good anyway.

This is my first post to linux-kernel. I'm not subsribed to the list, so
