What You Need to Get Started:

Step 1: Verify that Dial-up Networking is Installed

Press the [Start] button, select Settings..., then Control Panel. Double-click the Add/Remove Programs icon. Select the Windows Setup tab, then click on the Communications option and press Details.... Make sure that the Dial-up Networking option is selected. If it is, go on to step 2. If it isn't, select it and click OK. Windows 95 will attempt to install the needed drivers, so make sure you've got your installation disks or CD handy! Now that Dial-up Networking is installed, you can proceed to step 2.

Step 2: Verify that the Dial-up Adapter and TCP/IP Protocol are Installed

Press the [Start] button, select Settings..., then Control Panel. Double-click the Network icon. You'll see a dialog box. Make sure the Configuration tab is selected. Both Dial-Up Adapter and TCP/IP should be present, then you're ready to proceed to step 3.

To add the Dial-Up Adapter, hit the Add... button, double-click Adapter, then scroll down the list until you can select Microsoft. Choose the Dial-Up Adapter and hit OK.

If your dialogue box looks like this you need to install TCP/IP, hit the Add... button, double-click Protocol, then select Microsoft, then TCP/IP, and hit OK.

Click on NetBEUI and click remove. Click on IPX/SPX-compatible Protocol and click remove.

Now your Network dialog box should contain both Dial-Up Adapter and TCP/IP and should look like this:

Select the adapter, click Properties..., Bindings, and make sure the TCP/IP box is checked. You're now ready to proceed to step 3.

Step 3: Creating your APANA/Hunter Connection Profile

Open up My Computer from the desktop and double-click the Dial-Up Networking icon. Double-click the Make New Connection icon. This will walk you through the Make New Connection wizard.

Type in APANA Hunter, APANA, or whatever you want to call the icon you're about to create to connect you to our system.

Your modem (which should have been configured when you installed Windows 95) should be shown in the Select a modem: area. Press the Configure button.

On the General tab, Set your modem speed to whatever is appropriate for your modem. DO NOT, however, select Only connect at this speed. This will let your modem adjust as the connection needs.

Don't worry about the Connection tab, the defaults should be fine.

Next, select the Options tab. Check the Bring up terminal window after dialing. Now hit the OK button.

Click the Next > button in the Make New Connection wizard. Enter in our phone number - 4954-8168. You don't need to put in an area code as it's a local call.

Press the Finish button and your icon will be created.

Step 4: Setting up your APANA/Hunter Dial-up Profile

Select your newly-created connection icon, press the right mouse button and choose Properties... You should get a dialog box named whatever name you gave your icon.

Press the Server Type... button. You'll get the Server Types dialog box.

In the Type of Dial-Up Server section, press the down arrow to drop down the list box.  Since you're going to use PPP, choose that server type in the list box.

Select the TCP/IP box at the bottom of this window, ensure that the Server Assigned IP adress option is selected.

Select the Manual DNS server selection option, and enter as the PRIMARY DNS Server. Hit the OK button.

Make sure that Log on to network in the Advanced options: section is not checked. Also, make sure that TCP/IP in the Allowed network protocols: section is checked. Then press the OK button.

Hit the OK button in the remaining dialog box, and you're almost ready to dial!

Step 5: Configure Dial-Up Networking to Automatically Redial a Busy Number

You can configure your dial-up sessions to automatically redial when they encounter a busy signal. From the Dial-Up Networking folder, select the Connections... menu item, then the Settings... option. From there, you can choose the number of times you would like your dial-up sessions to attempt a connection.

Step 6: Dialing in and Getting Connected

Double-click your session icon that you recently made. You'll get the Connect To dialog box. Put your username and password in the appropriate text areas.

Press the Connect button and your modem should start dialing. After a few rings, our machine should answer.

Once connected, a post-dial terminal window will appear after the handshaking signals.

Enter your user name and press ENTER. Then enter your password and press ENTER. A menu will appear on the screen, select 2 and press ENTER.

If you get some garbled characters after entering your connection information, ignore it - it won't affect the connection.

Press F7 or click the Continue (F7) button and you should be connected! If all went well, you'll see a Connected to Dial-up PPP dialog box.

Open your Web browser and set up its preferences with the following information.

If you have problems after this then uninstall all the networking and browser software from your computer; restart it; reinstall the networking and browser software; restart it and then work your way through these steps again.
