These are help pages for users of CSS Internet Services. If you have a different ISP, these pages will give you a general idea how to set up your software, however, you will need to obtain server specific information from your Sys Admin.

If you are having modem problems, visit the modem help page or change your modem's extra settings.

Dial Up scripting and the associated Dial Up Networking are the main programs that provide your connect to CSS. While the browser and mail simply display things for you to see, it is the networking components that do all the work behind the scenes. There are multiple windows on the page because many things have to be set up just right for this networking to function properly. And, to make matters worse, there are many different ways to getting to this information. Also, newer version of Windows 95 have screens that look slightly different.


This is the base dial up scripting window. You can reach this screen by clicking START, PROGRAMS, ACCESSORIES, DIAL UP SCRIPTING TOOL.

If ECSIS is not listed on your browse window, cancel out, then right click here and choose SAVE TARGET AS, then on SAVE IN choose your C drive and double click PROGRAM FILES, ACCESSORIES.
