Internet Connection Kit Setup
about the Apple Internet Dialer
The Apple Internet Connection Kit uses the Apple Internet Dialer
to setup a PPP connection. The user simply opens the Apple Internet
Dialer, configures a window, and then selects a menu item which
brings up a series of windows which ask several queries. These Apple
Internet Dialer then configures the TCP/IP and ConfigPPP panels
for the user.
To use the Apple Internet Dialer, install the software from the
CD-ROM; then open the folder 'Apple Internet Connection Kit'. Open
the Apple Internet Dialer, and configure the following fields:
- Phone Number:

Then click on the selection 'Provider' on the menubar. Scroll down
the menu that appears to "Define provider information". This brings
up a series of screens that ask for the following information:
