Internet Setup for Macintosh

Running the Internet Config application will make setting up things like e-mail easier, so to begin with, run it. Since this program is not necessarily found in one specific place, the easiest thing to do is run a FIND.

Citynet: Voice, Data, and Internet Solution


Pull down the File menu, and click on Find...,

Citynet: Voice, Data, and Internet Solution


Make sure that beside Find items, it says on local disks. Type in Internet Config.

Citynet: Voice, Data, and Internet Solution


Click on the Internet Config icon above that is listed under Kind as an application program.

Internet Preferences

There are only really two of the following sections, which need setup. The others can be configured to run different apps for various file types and for firewall access, don't worry about them. The only two that need setup are Personal and E-mail. After completing these two sections, proceed to PPP Setup.

PPP Setup

Select which connection software is being used. There will be more than this listed under Control Panels, but they are of no concern at this point.

Citynet: Voice, Data, and Internet Solution


Note: PPP and Remote Access, are the same with only one minor exception. Remote Access does not say Connect Via: Modem at the top, because that is all it is setup to do anyway. Remote Access is the new version of the PPP control panel found only in the newest revisions of the MacOS.

Config PPP (OS 8.0 - 8.5)

Citynet: Voice, Data, and Internet Solution


After setting up this control panel the way shown here, click on the Config... button.

Citynet: Voice, Data, and Internet Solution


Enter CityNet for PPP Server name, set Flow Control as shown, enter appropriate Phone num, put in AT&F for Modem Init. When finished, click Connect Script...

Citynet: Voice, Data, and Internet Solution


Setup this screen to look exactly as it does above, entering your user name and password on the 2nd and 4th lines. Also, make sure to put a check in the box at the end of those lines.

PPP/Remote Access (OS 8.6 - 9.5)
PPP and Remote Access are identical with the exception of the Connect via: field, which is not with Remote Access. This Control Panel is very easy to set up and is more or less self-explanatory. Clicking on the Options... button at the bottom will access the disconnect idle time setting and a few other things, none of which should need to be messed with.

TCP/IP Setup
Again there will be more Control Panels listed that this, but pick the one that they have. MacTCP will most likely appear with the ConfigPPP and FreePPP. The TCP/IP panel is part of Open Transport, Apple's newest connection software, and will be found with PPP, Remote Access, and possibly also with FreePPP.

MacTCP

No picture available for this control panel. All of this information comes from our web site.
(The first sentence just tells you how to do what the above picture just showed.)

Configuring the MacTCP Control Panel

Click Apple Menu, Control Panels, MacTCP. If it is not there, you need to install it from your operating system disks. Consult your computer's documentation for details. On this screen, you will see your network items, including your PPP icon (either FreePPP or MacPPP must be installed). Highlight your PPP icon, and click "More," then enter the following information:

Obtain Address:

     Select Server
          Domain Name Server Information: (enter the following:)
               1st blank:
                    Domain: citynet.net
                    IP Address: 66.118.80.4 (default CLICKED)
               2nd blank:
                    Domain: citynet.net
                    IP Address: 66.118.64.3 (default NOT CLICKED)

(Note - Routing Information and IP Address will be administered by the server)

Click OK to close this screen, then close the MacTCP screen by clicking the close box.

Congratulations!!! That should complete the setup.


TCP/IP

This Control Panel should look just like this. When complete, close the window and click Save when the computer asks if you want to save the changes.

Citynet: Voice, Data, and Internet Solution

Congratulations!!! That should complete the setup.
