MacTCP problem

The MacTCP for System 7.5.5 on my Power Macintosh Performa 5400/180 automatically changes it's settings when I open the Apple Internet Dialer.

I have found that the MacTCP conflicts with Open Transport which is needed by the Apple Internet Dialer.

How do I fix it so this does not happen?

Just wondering if you've tried FreePPP instead of OT? OT certainly conflicts with MacTCP. I sometimes find it is better to stick with the MacTCP/FreePPP combination on non-PPCs, though I am not sure you'll want to do this with your PPC.

I have InterSLIP with PPP at the moment which works with MacTCP, I have tried to remove InterSLIP but the PPP refuses to work without it.

I'm not quite sure about this, but I think if you got a copy of FreePPP (should be available from www.shareware.com) and installed it, it would be worth seeing how it went.

Good luck,

I have downloaded FreePPP from the Shareware Address.
How do I use it with the MacTCP?

In the MacTCP menu I have configPPP,Localtalk, Ethernet and SLIP.
When I restart my computer configPPP, SLIP and InterSLIP are selected.

Could this be a reason why the MacTCP changes it's configeration?

We use TCP/IP with FreePPP 2.5v3 and experience no problems. You can switch from MacTCP to TCP/IP using the Network Selector Switch (look in the Apple Extras folder) if your software was installed correctly. TCP/IP is more stable that MacTCP and gives you more options.
After installation of FreePPP reboot go to the TCP/IP control panel.
Connect via: FreePPP
Configure: Using PPP server
Name server addr.: <your isp's IP addr>
Additional Search Domains" <your isp's domain - blah.blah.com>
Close and save.
Go to the AppleTalk control panel and select the correct port (if you select the port that the modem is using, AppleTalk will report that the port is in use - kinda goofy, but you'll get used to it).
Go to the FreePPP Setup Utility and fill in the blanks (isp info, etc. - use the AutoDetect init string).
FreePPP is better than OT/PPP or Config PPP. You can turn both of them off after you install FreePPP.

FreePPP can be found at shareware.com
