I think you want to configure dial-up PPP to the Unix box. You are asking that question in the wrong area.  Try the Linux, or Unix groups.

I do not fully understand your question. However, I wonder if you mean that you want to choose whether to use PPP or Slip connection. If this is the case then have you thought of installing two dial up networking icons? One for the PPP connection. The other for the Slip connection. If you are setting up for the Slip connection you must install the slip protocol from the W95 setup disk before setting up the dial up connection. If this is the answer to your question, then I am able to supply more information if you require it.

I am sorry I can not accept your answer ,but Iwould like to give you the exact scenerio . At one end I am having windows 95 pc  with a synchronous modem attached at com1and  at the other end I am having dec server with ppp enabled .I am able to login to this server through hyperlink of win95. But as I have to run front end for oracle database at win 95. I was not able to install syncronous modem (leased line connection  between two sync modems) .  For running front end application at win 95 connect it to oracle database which is on unix sever (lan of dec server) I will have to connect it through ppp with tcp/ip .when i install any modem and start dial from dial up window of win 95 . It starts searching modem and give error . But I have got solution for this by myself .If you think you can give me any solution for this and that also works I will accept it  I  will have to give these score  to somebody   as i can not take my question back....

Thank you..

Since it's a leased line,there's no dial tone,hence DIAL-up networking doesn't apply.You should be able to connect using Direct Cable Connection.

Dear Mattcei

As I have got solution by myself And it is working in dial up networking.As direct cable will do but is of no use as one is to make host and other guest. I had to run oracle front end application on win 95 . You are very near to the answer as you thougt it in very logical way you can get these points . I give you hint if this would be windows nt ,It would be the easy task. I will be waiting for your answer.
