Once “Dial-Up Networking” is installed, lets start it up from “My Computer” and lets define a connection to the Internet, in my case, via my CompuServe Dial-In (but this setup is very similar to other ISPs):
|Since there is not yet any connection defined,|
your “phonebook” is empty.
You have only one option to continue: OK
|Give your connection a name.|
|Define the type of Server:|
If you are calling the Internet,
put in the Check-Mark !
|Define the phone-number to call.|
You have the option to enter it
either as a full-number (as I did)
or following the “Telephony
Dialing properties”, where you
are asked for:
That is the better choice for a
Mobile computer, which has to
Connect from different locations.
That’s it: the connection is defined, but you still need to “Configure it”, before you can use it !
|Configure DUN as Internet Connection|
