Installation of the Windows95/98 VPN-Client

Install first Dialup-Networking
On Windows95, it installs the
default Clients and Protocols,
to which you need to add the
TCP/IP-protocol for Internet

If you are using Windows95,
please check first, that you
have the proper VPN-software
In the Network-applet, select
ADD, then select Adapter and
verify, that you see under the
manufacturer Microsoft the
"Microsoft Virtal Private
Network Adapter

If that is NOT listed, you will
first need to download and
install the Dialup-Networking
Upgrade 1.2.

With Virtal Networking installed, the list in
the Network-applet becomes long, so I pasted
two together to get everything shown in one
by default, each protocol is bound to each
In my specific setup, I only need:
- the Client for Microsoft Networks
- the binding of TCP/IP to the Dialup-Adapter
(this will allow to connect to the Internet)
- the binding of NetBEUI to the VPN-adapter
(which is my protocol to connect to the
VPN-server in this example).
I deleted all other (not required) bindings

In case, that you need to install all components from scratch (on Windows95
or Windows98), it can be done step-by-step:

Starting with nothing:
Add first the
Microsoft Dialup-Adapter
Add the TCP/IP-protocol
(to allow to connect to
the Internet).
Add the Client:
"Client for Microsoft Network"
(required in ANY case to save/
cache the Dialup-Networking
Now, add AGAIN
(a second time) the
Microsoft Dialup Adapter.

It will get marked as:
(VPN support)

(sorry, this DUN upgrade does
still NOT allow two
simultaneus dialouts on
2 Modems to different targets)
Add the adapter: Microsoft
Virtual Private Networking
This will also install the
Virtual Private Networking
Since I will connect to my
VPN-server via NetBEUI
protocol, I need to install now
I delete any not required
- NetBEUI to Dialup-Adapter
(because that is using ONLY
TCP/IP to connect to the
- TCP/IP on Dialup-Adapter#2
(because my VPN-server will
only accept incoming calls
on NetBEUI-protocol.
That's it.
please continue with the next
item, configuring the workgroup.

In any case, make sure that your system is
in the same workgroup/domain as the
Let the system install all s/w components.
and it will need to restart.

After the reboot, we are ready to setup your dialup networking connections.
