NetSystem.GetPassword (service, host: ARRAY OF CHAR;

There will be a problem to retrieve a password with embedded 0X.
But this is a minor problem :-)

Didn't you fix it already in your PPP code ?

Yes. I had this with my first provider some years ago. You also get this
feature with other programs. E.g. kppp (Linux) also allows to define
