Remote system name
Enter a name that will be used to identify the service provider in the
file, or select an existing entry from those listed.
You can edit entries using the
Dialup Systems Manager.
Enter the telephone numbers of the service provider by clicking on
Add. Each number will be tried in turn until one is answered.
If you are configuring the connection to use multilink PPP,
you must enter at least as many numbers as there are potential component links.
To change the order of an entry, select it, and then use the
Raise and Lower buttons. Use the Delete
button to remove an entry.
How to connect
Select whether the PPP link will be brought up
on demand whenever needed by software such
as a Web browser or telnet, or only by using the
command to connect manually.
You must select pppattach if the service provider
dynamically assigns a potentially different IP
address to your end of the link each time it is established.
