Win 98 setup?

Did you run Winipcfg AFTER connecting to AOL???  If so, then that would mean
AOL does not use TCP/IP at all.

You don't need a network card.  Normally (I don't know about AOL), once you
dial up, a new adapter is created which has the IP address assigned from the
server you just dialed into.

As an example, here is the output I get before connecting via a dial-up:

C:\>ipconfig

Windows 2000 IP Configuration

Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:

        Media State . . . . . . . . . . . : Cable Disconnected

And after:

C:\>ipconfig

Windows 2000 IP Configuration

Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:

        Media State . . . . . . . . . . . : Cable Disconnected

PPP adapter {303919D2-ED3D-45FA-9651-15E6248A6041}:

        Connection-specific DNS Suffix  . :
        IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 66.2.65.206
        Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.255
        Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 66.2.65.206

Notice how the new PPP adapter now exists with an IP address of 66.2.65.206.
This will be (probably) different each time I dialup.

I ran the winipcfg program.

I do not have an IP address setup for the computer. I do not have a network
card, so how do I go about labelling my computer with an IP address?

All I have is a modem and connect to the Internet through AOL?

It's "ipconfig" under NT, "winipcfg" under Windows 95 and 98.

Ipconfig or winipcfg (I don't know which one 98 has) provide helpful
information about the addresses your computer will respond to.

Try running it both before and after you dialup, you should see a PPP
adapter after you dialup that isn't there before.

HTH,
Lee

Dear People,

New to the list. Just subscribed a couple of mins ago!

Having a few problems that I hope you can assist me with.

I have Win VNC.

My plan is to use it to dialup computers @ work to carry out maintenance,
etc and if there was a problem, etc.

I know how to do it over the Internet.

However, seems a bit tricky when it comes to dialup. All the computers are
Windows 98 based machines. All with 56k modems.

The initial problem I have it, that I install Win VNC on a machine and the
IP address is 127.0.0.1 and I install it on another and the IP address is
the same. So how can they be the same? On two different addresses. This is
all new to me.

Has anyone produced an 'idiots' guide to setting up Win VNC on Windows 98
machines.

That includes: -

Dialup networking support - how to dial into the computers?
Win VNC - How to set this up?
