Windows NT provides a totally different look and interface to DUNS connectoids. Instead of icons for each connectoid, the Dial-up Networking screen has a drop-down list for all connectoids, with the More button for editing, and a New button to create a new entry:
Creating a NEW entry:
|When you click on the New button above, you get this screen which allows you to name the entry, put the phone number in (if you do not check Use Telephony dialing properties, the number will be dialed as entered; otherwise, the Telephony properties will be applied), and select the Modem to use. |
For dial-up connections to ISPs, the Server tab is important. See below.
|The only network protocol that should be checked is TCP/IP. |
Enable software compression and PPP LCP extensions are normally checked.
|Many ISPs provide server assigned IP and name server (DNS) addresses; if your ISP requires you to specify name server addresses, you must do so; otherwise, you will be able to connect to the ISP, but only be able to access sites by putting in the IP address - not the domain name - i.e. - http://126.96.36.199 would work, but the name ( 808news.com ) would not work.|
|To edit an existing NT DUNS connectoid, you select the connection from the drop-down list, then click the More button. |
Note - the Create shortcut to entry... selection allows you to make an icon that you can place on the desktop to easily access the Connectoid for dialing.
Clicking the Edit entry and modem properties... selection gives you the same screens above used to select modem, protocols, TCP/IP properties, etc.
