Edit and Existing Windows 2000 Dial Up Networking Connection

To edit a connection, open the Network and Dial-up Connections box, and right-click the connection you wish to edit:


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.
