PPP Connection Problem
Posted on 1997-02-04
Hello. We are running a BBS system (Windows NT 4.0 Server) with internet access. We’re having a problem getting one user connected. He has a Starmax 4000 sys. 7.5.3 OT 1.1.1 and FreePPP 2.5v2. FreePPP dials up the BBS and he connects through the terminal window. FreePPP claims that the connection is successsful but when he launches Netscape he gets a dialogue box saying: Netscape was unable to make a socket connection with the network. He brought his cpu and modem (USR Sportster 28,800 V.34 Voice) in to us and we changed his init string to AT&FO, and got on the web just fine. He tried it again at home and still gets the same message from Netscape.
