The kernel for these older pups do not include TLS1.2, which is standard today. One needs at least a 3-series kernel, AND a browser that also supports TLS1.2.

Thanks for replying, I think you're right.

Musher; yes I agree about MU, I wonder what he's doing now?

Yesterday I walked past a computer and noticed that it was running puppy 4.21. That makes it one that is not forgotten.

Yes, that was a good one (and Deeper Thought, which I think was based on Puppy 4.20, was one of my all time favourite Puppies). One problem I have with running most of the older ones now though is that I use ext4 as standard for the installed file systems on my hard drive and 4.21 won't read this format (even some more recent ones won't either, such as Precise 571 Retro).

What was the first Puppy to use the Network Manager (that made detecting wifi easier)? I really like the old Puppy 4.31,...but unfortunately, it just lists a lot of the wifi drivers to choose. I have different old computers/laptops and wifi dongles, and I really don't know their drivers (or even what some of them are). Network Manager is a must for me, I'm afraid (no wired internet right now).

I have a copy of MacPup 5.29 that I believe has the Network Manager (I think I'll go have a look at that).
That (and MacPup 5.50) were lovely Puppies.

EDIT: correction: It's called "Network Wizard"
(that usually works for all my wifi gizmos
and gadgets Very Happy )
