Our DialzipTM dialup network is
compatible with all Linux operating systems. Linux is open source
and has several default dialers. Check your Linux documentation
for which dialer your system supports. If you do not know, try the
Universal Dialer or the command line dialer. Please note most Linux
dialers do not have dymanic DNS and therfore require DNS addresses.
Please contact us if we forget to provide you with these settings.
To setup your account properly you should be familiar with the
dialup protocols of your operating system.
