Note: This setup is just a guide and FamilyNet cannot take responsibility for any
difficulty that you may encounter. Windows NT is considered a professional product
and FamilyNet Technical Support can only supply limited support for NT4 Workstation.
NT4 server is not supported. FamilyNet highly RECOMMENDS that setting up Internet Access should only be done by Network Administrators due to possibilities of allowing unauthorized access to your machine or internal network.


Windows NT 4.0 Dial-Up Networking (DUN) is very similar to the Windows 95 DUN.
Below is a tutorial which will guide you through installing the Remote Access Service
(RAS) and configuring DUN to connect to FamilyNet.


1. Check to see if Remote Access Service (RAS) is installed in the Network Control Panel. Refer to FIG 1-1. If RAS is installed go to the next step.
