|The Properties for the connection, with 5 tabs appears; |
In addition to the tabs, the Configure button provides access to modem properties.
|The Configure button brings the modem configuration window. |
The defaults - shown here - are normally correct.
|The Options Tab: |
Controls re-dialing, password prompt, etc. The settings to the right are nominal for NFN use.
|The Security Tab: |
Use 'unsecured' password; the defaults set by Windows2K are normally correct for connections for NFN use.
|The Networking tab: |
This is where the protocol is selected -
for a dial-up connection to NFN, 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 NFN servers and probably should be unchecked.
|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). Most NFN users will not be using this feature.
