Eskimo North  

Connecting to Eskimo North using MacTCP and ConfigPPP



The following are comprehensive instructions on using the MacTCP (or TCP/IP) found in the control panel and ConfigPPP. This combination is used commonly on Mac systems before 7.5.3.





Step 1: MacTCP (TCP/IP) Settings

Click on the Apple symbol, then on "Control Panels". Then open MacTCP:

Click on the PPP icon. Then click on More. Our Name Server addresses are 204.122.16.8 and 204.122.16.9; the domain for each can be set to eskimo.com. Other settings will be set by the server once you connect. Click OK to continue on.

Click the "New" button, and type "Eskimo North" as the connection name ("POP"), and click OK. Then choose "Config". For "Port Speed", use a speed just larger than your modem speed (28.8k should be 38400 or 57600; 56k should be 115200). "Flow Control" should be "CTS & RTS (DTR)". Access lines can be found at www.eskimo.com.

On the slower-speed v.34 access lines (Western WA only), a connection script is needed; click the "Connect Script" button and use the appropriate script below. 56k and ISDN connections do not need a dialup script.
