IwayNet Windows NT 4.0 Configuration
This document covers the information customers may need
while using Windows NT 4.0 systems. Windows NT 4.0 systems have built-in
communications utilities and thus do not need additional software for
dialing. If you need assistance with the setup process, feel free to
contact IwayNet Technical Support.

The "Network" Control Panel controls the way your computer accesses a
network. NOTE: You may need to have your Windows NT Setup Disks or
- Open the "Control Panel", then open the "Network" item.

Access Service" installed. If you do not have it installed, do so by
clicking on the "Add" button, otherwise click on the "Properties"
- The device that RAS is connected to should be your modem.
If it does not appear, click on the "Add" button and add your
modem to the list.
- Next click on the "Network" button and a new window should
appear. In this window, select only the "TCP/IP" option and then
click on "OK".
Windows NT 4.0 has its own software for dialing into networks. You can
configure this software to dial into IwayNet and establish your PPP
session. To find out if your computer has t he "Dial-Up Networking"
software installed double click on the "My Computer" icon on the desktop.
You should see a folder named "Dial-Up Networking". If you do not
see the folder then you will have to install the software and you can
follow the below steps to do so.

dialing properties" to do so.

compression" should be checked.
