Hi
I connect to a web provider with xminicom and I can log in and send mail with pine. But I cant start my Arena browser to surf on the internet. Maybe I need PPP I thought so I started PPP in that "dos-window". Perfect said the webserver and told me about his IP number and the temporary number I was given. "Ready to start your SLIP application" was the text at the end of the message.
Am I thinking wrong here or what ...?

Best Regards Claes Lindvall
