Here is your step by step method.
1. First you must download FreePPP. Click here to download >> freeppp262.sit.hqx
Click here for
the Official FreePPP
Why FreePPP? I found this program much simpler to setup than PPP that came with MacOS.
It's completely automatic and sets up so easily.
Open the telephone dialoge on the top right hand corner of your screen and click on Open FreePPP setup.
Click on Accounts. Please see sample screen below:
Then click on
New. Enter your new Account name
(highlighed in blue).
I've called mine Calgary Community Net.
Click on Connect:. Select "Using Connection Script". Please see sample screen below:
Enter your Username in lowercase letters.
That is the name that CCNA gave you when you aquired a membership.
It's usually 8 characters. Eg: John Smith would be smithj .
Enter your Password. This is a password you
selected when you aquired your CCNA membership.
It will enter in as "*******" asterisks so that someone using your computer won't see your password.
After this is all done you must click on edit connection script... Please see sample screen below:
On the first box under Do select "Wait For". Next to this box it underneath the Text type in Login:
On the second box select "Send". Next to this box type in your CCNA username. Eg. smithj.
On the third box select "Wait For". Next to this box type ssword:
On the fourth box select "Send". Next
to this box type in \P"prompt" .
This is to ensure that no one can see your password.
This prompt uses whatever password you entered in the Password box under Account.
On the fifth box select "Wait For". Next to this box type in PPP: .
On on the sixth box select "Send". Next to this box type in 2 .
On the seventh box select "Wait For". Next to this box type lirp .
After this is all finished click on "OK".
This will bring you back to the Accounts dialog box with the Account/Dialup/Options.
Click on " Dialup" . Please see sample screen below:
Under "Main Menu" enter CCNA's area code:
403 and telephone number : 289-9378
Click on "Options". Please see sample screen below:
Enter under Primary DNS - 10.0.2.15
Click on button IP Address: Assigned
by PPP Server.
In the "Connect via :" dialoge box select "FreePPP".
In the "Configure: " dialoge box select "Using PPP Server".
Enter in the "Name server
addr.:" type in 184.108.40.206 which is Calgary Community Nets
Don't try to enter the IP address. It is automatically entered above.
That's it. Your Mac should now be configured to log onto CCNA
The Modem and Home dialog boxes should be configured as per your setup.
