Connection Instructions

    Our DialzipTM dialup network is compatible with all Linux operating systems.  Linux is open source and has several default dialers.  Check your Linux documentation for which dialer your system supports.  If you do not know, try the Universal Dialer or the command line dialer. Please note most Linux dialers do not have dymanic DNS and therfore require DNS addresses. Please contact us if we forget to provide you with these settings.  To setup your account properly you should be familiar with the dialup protocols of your operating system. 

    Setup for Linux using the Red Hat Dialer: 

The following dialer (called RP3) is available on any RedHat Linux install of version 6.2 or later. It is by far the easiest dialer installation and highly recommended.  To find it goto your GNOME menu under INTERNET.  It should be called DIALUP CONGIGURATION TOOL.
