Set up a dial-up connection

Next comes the phone number to dial into.  Local numbers can be found separated by state/province on our 56k Dial Access page.  Dashes are not needed.  It also asks for your dialup username and password (with an option to see the characters to avoid typos) and whether you want the connection available to all users of the computer.  It then asks for a name for the connection, such as "Eskimo North", "Eskimo 56k", or something else you want to remember the connection name with.  Click "Create" to continue after typing the name.

Once a connection is created above, connecting should be available in the Networking shortcut in the status bar, showing the name the connection was created with with a telephone icon next to it (the computer used in these screen shots had no modem, so shows a red "X" below).
