Windows 2000 Configuration of Dial-Up Connection

After you defined a Dial-up Connection, I strongly suggest to verify the settings
(and for some Internet connections, you MUST define additional parameters ! ) :


Goto "Network and Dial-up Connections"
and Right-Click on your connection to
select "Properties"

Tab: General
Here you could enter/correct the
access phone number to your ISP.

Make sure, that the check-mark
is set for "Showing the icon in the
Taskbar when connected".

tab: Options
Here you can customize the
"Dialing Options".
I suggest to "Prompt for Name
and Password", it will display the
values defined during the definition
allowing to verify and modify them.

As part of the Redialing options, you
can define, after how much "Idle Time"
the connection should be terminated
by "Hanging Up"

tab: Security
Settings for the trasmittion of
the password.

Some ISP's (like: CompuServe
and UUNET) require the use
of the Script to control the
logon process.
if you need a Script, put the
Check-mark and then click on
"Browse" to locate the script-file.

The Dialog-box to locate the
Script-files does NOT point
to the location of the Script-files
provided with Windows 2000.

Change to "RAS" in your Windows
System directory (usually:
\Winnt\SYSTEM32\RAS)
and select your Script, if it is
provided with Windows 2000.

(if you have a script provided
by your ISP, like the INNET.SCP
of UUNET, you should first copy
it to this directory, where it is then
stored with all other scripts).

tab: Networking
The network components, which
are used for this connection.

For a SECURE connection to the
Internet (to prevent others to connect
to your disk)
, you should UN-CHECK
"File and Printer Sharing" !

When connecting to the Internet,
TCP/IP is the required protocol.
(when connecting to other systems,
you may have to use "Install" to add
an additional Protocol)
.
Since most Computers, especially ISP's,
use
DHCP to assign automatically the
IP-address, there is no need to
configure anything for the TCP/IP
protocol.
However, if required, you can define
the IP-address and also the
DNS-server.


We are ready to
make the connection to the Internet.
