Before Dial-Up Networking/Remote Access Service can be used, you need to setup/configure your modem: In the "Control-Panel", start "Modem":

If there is not yet a modem defined,
the system will display the dialog:
"Install New Modem".

Let the system work out itself,
where and which modem is
installed, so just: "Next"
The system should find your modem.
If the type is not identified properly,
you have the option to "Change" it
to manually pick your modem type
or to use "Have Disk" to load the
Modem-Definition file from the
floppy, delivered with your modem
(if it is a new type, yet unknown
to this release of NT).

Then, select "Next"
If you install a modem the first time
on your system, you will be asked
to define your Country, Area-code
and dial-out-prefix.

then, you are "Finished".
To check the settings for the modem,
select in the "Control-Panel" the
"Modem" applet, which calls up
the Modem-properties.

Your Modem is now ready for use.
