These instructions assume that you are not already on a network. If you are, please consult your network administrator for instructions. If you follow these instructions, you may lose your network connectivity.

We recommend using the most current release versions of Open Transport and FreePPP.

If you are currently using "ConfigPPP," we recommend switching to FreePPP. FreePPP has a much better external interface and is more flexible; the internal operations are basically the same as ConfigPPP.

If not already installed, run the FreePPP Setup application, and follow it's instructions.

If not already installed, run the Open Transport installer, and follow it's instructions. If you are using Apple's Classic Networking, either follow the Classic Networking Instructions or use Apple's Network Software Selector to switch to Open Transport. The Network Software Selector was installed onto your machine during the Open Transport installation.

and now, onto the setup images_files.

The FreePPP icon should now be present on your menu bar. It looks like a globe and a telephone. From that FreePPP menu, choose "Open FreePPP Setupimages_files."
