PPP, no connectivity options

PPP, no connectivity options

Post by KYIM » Mon, 21 Jul 1997 04:00:00

An idea for those without connectivity trying to get the stuff they need
to get connected... Grab an account from either a BBS or a provider like
Concentric (http://www.concentric.net) then just use minicom to dial up.
If you fail to send the right stuff to get PPP from Concentric you go
right into a BBS type thing where you can ftp, read news, surf the web
with lynx, etc.    

Don't respond to the account I'm posting from though, it's borrowed...: )
