kppp is a modem and internet dialer for the KDE system, whose name is an abbreviation for "KDE Point-to-Point Protocol".

kppp is generally used to connect to an internet service provider via a modem and phone line, although it can be used in other situations where the PPP protocol is needed. It is a graphical frontend to the pppd daemon, designed to make it easy for non-technical users to connect to the internet from home using their KDE system.

As with all KDE applications, it is programmed using Trolltech's Qt widget-set, which provides the look and feel and controls for the application.
