IMHO, Trumpet's scripting capability is a powerful feature that *most* people
would *hate* to give up!!! Especially, if it meant having to learn a whole new
scripting language from another dialing utility!
I've used Win95's internet application and find it easy to configure as a PPP
connection using PAP (Password Authentication Protocol); no scripting required.
BUT... If I try connecting to an ISP without PAP, I'm *screwed*, unless I learn
Windows 95's scripting language, Aaa-arr-rr-rgh!
Again, there's your trade-offs, and then there's your solutions! Preferences
are what you make of them.
As far as configuring Trumpet with Win95? Well, I've tried the 16bit version
and (barely) got it to work (yack!), but I haven't tried the new 32bit Win95
version. Either one *should* work with your standard Trumpet (16bit version)
script files.

Good luck!
