The iPass Dial Wizard for Macintosh
The iPass Dial Wizard for Macintosh requires Open Transport and Open Transport/PPP (OT and
OT/PPP). If you are using another TCP/IP stack or PPP implementation, you will be unable
to use the iPass Dial Wizard. Both OT and OT/PPP can be obtained from Apple check
http://www.apple.com/macos/opentransport/ for details.
It is highly recommended that you run System 7.5.3 or newer to support OT and OT/PPP.
Please check the Apple web site listed above in order to determine the exact requirements
for your specific system.
To determine your System Software version, go to the Finder, select "About this
Macintosh..." or "About this Computer..." from the Apple () menu. The
dialog will tell you what version of System Software you are running.
You can look in your Control Panels folder to see if you are running OT. Your Control
Panels folder is inside your System Folder. If there is a Control Panel called TCP/IP, you
are running OT. If there is a Control Panel called MacTCP, you are running the older
MacTCP and will need to upgrade to OT.
You can determine if you have OT/PPP installed the same way as checking for OT. Check your
Control Panels folder. If there is a control panel called PPP, you have OT/PPP installed.
If not, you will need to install OT/PPP.
To determine the version of OT and OT/PPP you are running, open the TCP/IP control panel
and select "Get Info" from the File menu. The dialog will tell you the version
of OT and the version of OT/PPP that you are running.
How to Install the iPass Dial Wizard for Macintosh
The file will download as a binhex file. You can use "Stuffit Expander" to
extract the file into a self-extracting archive. Double click on this archive and you will
get a folder called iPass Dial Wizard.
To run the iPass Dial Wizard, you must make sure that the application, the file "POP
Database," and the folder "Scripts" are all located in the same folder. If
they are not, delete all the files and extract them again. If the files are still
incomplete, please contact DLS for assistance.
Now open the TCP/IP control panel. Make sure that you have changed "Connect
via:" to PPP. Also, make sure that you have provided Domain Name Service (DNS) entry.
If you do not have one, ask your DLS for one. Ensure that the DNS entry that you are given
is accessible from outside any firewalls that might be in place.
Please note that the iPass Dial Wizard does not negotiate DNS settings. It is assumed that
your modem is properly configured through the Modem Control Panel and that you were able
to make a successful connection to the Internet prior to the Dial Wizard Installation. Now
that you have the Dial Wizard installed, try to make a connection to a local iPass number
to ensure that you are set up successfully. It is much easier, and less expensive, to get
support from DLS while you are still at home.
Using the iPass Dial Wizard
The iPass Dial Wizard is easy to use. Simply run the program from the Dial Wizard folder
and follow the prompts as provided. In no time, you will easily be able to connect to the
Internet, with a local phone call, while traveling throughout the world.
If you need the memory that is being used by the iPass Dial Wizard, you can always quit
the program after you have established a connection. To hang up, just restart the program
and click "Hang Up."
If you have problems, please check the following:
- Your modem is connected and plugged in.
- The phone line is connected to your modem.
- You have selected PPP from the TCP/IP control panel.
- You have enough memory. You should have at least one and a half megabytes (1.5MB) of
free RAM in order to run the iPass Dial Wizard and establish a PPP connection.
- OT/PPP does not correctly negotiate DNS. See the discussion in "Installation
Instructions" for a description of how to address this problem.
If none of these help you to resolve your problem, please contact us for technical
