Modern AOL software for Microsoft Windows uses standard protocols (PPP,
PPPoE) to establish link-layer connectivity. It then establishes a
TCPIP connection to authenticate the user. This protocol is
proprietary. Before authentication, a user's network traffic cannot
reach the internet.
To use AOL's ISP service on Linux, one must reverse engineer the
authentication protocol. I am not certain anyone has done that.
