Connection Instructions
Mac OS

    Our DialzipTM dialup network is compatible with all Mac operatings systems.  We will have tutorials for other Mac versions as they become available.  You can use this as a baseline to make the connection with your Mac version.  To setup your account properly you should be familiar with the dialup protocols of your operating system. 

    Please note that you must have an ISDN modem to connect via ISDN mode and any normal modem will do for 56K or less connections.  Although we do not sell modems directly we do recommend several modem vendors who often have specials.
