DUNS Connectoids - Windows 2K
Windows 2K & DUNS. Dial-up networking is not shown on My Computer as in Win9x; instead, it appears in Control Panel, and also in the Start->Settings Menu as "Network and Dial-up Connections":
To edit a Connectoid, open the Network and Dial-up Connections box, and right-click the connectoid you wish to edit:
|The Properties for the connection, with 5 tabs
In addition to the tabs, the Configure button provides access to modem properties.
|The Configure button brings the modem
The defaults - shown here - are normally correct.
|The Options Tab:
Controls re-dialing, password prompt, etc.
|The Security Tab:
Most ISPs use 'unsecured' password; the defaults set by Windows2K are normally correct for connections to ISPs.
|The Networking tab:
This is where the protocol is selected -
for dial-up connections to ISPs, normally only the TCP/IP protocol is selected.
There is an additional Window accessible from here with the Settings button.
|The settings button produces this window.
LCP extensions and software compression normally are desirable; however, the default of negotiate multi-link for single link connections may cause problems connecting to some ISPs.
|The Sharing tab:
If you are on a local network, other computers on the network can share your dial-up connection to the Internet if you enable it here (and set everything up properly on both computers).
