How to make a Dial-Up connection to SLAC

  • Double-click on My Computer and double-click the Dial-up Networking icon
  • Select the phonebook entry for dialing to SLAC
  • Click on the Dial button
  • In the Dial-Up Networking window click on the Dial button
  • Enter your dial-up User name

Now that you have remote access service set up on your computer, you'll see that a "Logon using Dial-Up Networking" check box appears in the Logon Information dialog box when you first log on to Windows NT.

If check this box, Windows NT makes a dial-up connection as part of the logon process, so that your network is available right away.

  • Click on the Add button in the Remote Access Setup window to get this window.

  • Click on the Next button
  • When your modem is found click on the Next button and follow the on screen instructions
  • If the modem install utility is unable to detect and identify your modem, it presents a list of modem manufacturers and models from which you can select from.
