Open Transport TCP/IP Set Up
Open Transport (OT) is the latest and greatest TCP/IP thing for the Mac.
Mac users have been waiting a long, long, long time for the release of
a MacTCP replacement. It's not that MacTCP is bad is just that...well...
ok...MacTCP is bad. OT is more stable (on most Macs), runs faster and is
a lot easier to configure than MacTCP.
The only down side, and it's a big
thing to consider before rudely trashing MacTCP, is that some Mac TCP
applications don't really like the flavor of OT and tend to respond to
it with terse error messages. However, most things seem to run just fine
In one easy lesson here's how to configure OT to connect to Wizard.
Open up the TCP/IP control panel. That's the only part of OT that
you can configure. (It's in your System Folder in the control panels folder.)
When you get it open you'll see a screen that look's like this one:
Set "Connect Via" to "PPP", "MacPPP" or
"FreePPP" (depending on which version of PPP you're using).
Then set "Configure" to "Using PPP Server".
Now all that's left is entering the two Domain name Server addresses which are
188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206 and the search domains entry
"wzrd.com". That's it, you're done! Now quit TCP/IP.
You'll be prompted to save the changes...save them.
