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 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52; 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.
Step 2: MacPPP (ConfigPPP) Settings
Click on the Apple symbol, select Control Panels, and click MacPPP (named PPP or ConfigPPP on some systems):
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.
Real PPP (set by support upon request):
Click the "Authentication" button. The name and password to use is one of the following pairs of information:
- Your 56k/ISDN login and password for accessing the 56k/ISDN lines,
- Your email login and Non-Dedicated PPP password for those with the PPP setup on the v.34 lines (Western WA only), or
- Your email login and email password for those using Emulated SLIP/PPP on the v.34 lines (Western WA only) or through a remote shell.
Click OK, then Done. You will now be back to the ConfigPPP window, where you can click the "Open" button to connect.
