There is also information to set up your email software too.
If you are using Windows 3.x, or have an older release of Windows 95, here is preconfigured software for the Windows 3.x, and Windows 95 that includes Internet Explorer. DO NOT USE IF YOU HAVE WINDOWS 95 WITH INTERNET EXPLORER 4.0 OR ON WINDOWS 98
To manually configure your software, please be sure to set the following things correctly.
PPP is the Point-to-Point Protocol. Using PPP you receive IP packets off the Internet as a live host. Your computer actually becomes part of the Internet.
DigiComm has Windows 95/98 Dial-Up Networking Support using PAP authentication. This means that you have the option of logging in over the PPP connection. You don't need any kind of script at all, just have your software dial the number and start PPP as soon as you connect. (If you are one of our early customers still using a script it is no longer necessary, although you do not need to remove it to continue your service)
Once the connection is established, the login name and password are sent via the PPP protocol before an active session can begin. For this to work, you must have software that has support for the PAP protocol, have it enabled, and have filled in your login name and password in the correct case (usually lowercase) in the appropriate entry fields.
When using dial-up networking (PAP), there is no need to have a capital "P" before your login name . The P is only used to manually start PPP or via a script login. Dial-up networking is a different way of starting PPP.
If you don't use PAP to enable PPP on DigiComm, please login with a capital 'P' in front of your login name (password is the same). For instance, the subscriber with a login of 'john' and password 'x75tU!' would login as follows:
DCaccess login: Pjohn
Password: x75tU! <---- the password never actually echos
PPP will start immediately after login, there will be no prompts to wait for.
