Main >> Support >> Configuring FreePPP Feedback

If you are using Mac OS 8 or 9, you may need to use a 3rd-party dialer in order to connect to ISPDr instead of the included Remote Access control panel. One of the best 3rd-party dialers available is FreePPP.

Please note: this process will require you to reboot your computer, so it is advisable to print the instructions below before continuing.

Creating the connection: FreePPP
  Download FreePPP and extract it
  Double-click on the installer file
  Follow the on-screen prompts to install the application
  The computer will reboot. When it has finished rebooting, click on the FreePPP icon in the top bar, and click "Open FreePPP Setup"



  Click on the Using menu, and choose New modem...



  Give the modem a name (e.g. "Apple Modem") in the Modem config name field
  Make sure the Port Speed is set to 57600 bps
  Leave Flow Control as "CTS & RTS (DTR)", and Dial Type as "Tone"
  Change the Modem init string settings dot to "AutoDetect init string"
  Click OK



  The Using field on the main FreePPP window should now read "Apple Modem". If it doesn't, change it.
  Click on Connect To, and choose "New account..."



  In the Account name field, type "ispdr"
  Make sure the Connect pull-down menu is set to "Directly"
  Type your username and password in the fields below

  Click on the Options tab
  In Primary DNS, type "203.33.168.2"
  In Secondary DNS, type "203.33.168.3"
  Tick Configure OT TCP/IP for this Account
  Leave IP address as "Assigned by PPP server"



  Click OK. FreePPP will give you a warning about not entering an area code, click "Yes"
  Close the FreePPP window


  Click on the Apple menu, go down to Control Panel, and across to "TCP/IP"
  Make sure Connect via: is set to "FreePPP"
  Configure should be set to "Using PPP Server", and the Name server addr and Search domains fields should already be filled out
  Close the TCP/IP control panel. If it asks you to save the changes, click Yes


Congratulations! You have now created a dial-up connection with FreePPP. It should connect automatically when you start your Web browser / email program. However, if you want to make a connection manually - or disconnect:


How to Connect and Disconnect manually
