    Dial up under os x

    You will have to get the DNS numbers from your ISP. Then just type them into the DNS box in PPP Connect. That should be all you need to do.

    A .sit expander?

    Why not use the carbonized version of StuffIt Expander that's included with Mac OS X Beta? Go to your Applications folder, open the Utilities folder, and open the Aladdin folder. Enjoy. Don't use StuffIt Expander to expand .tar.gz or .tgz files though. It doesn't like those for some...

    PPP doesnt work ?

    Just to clarify... Apple Remote Access in Mac OS 9 was able to pull the DNS information (as well as your IP, the gateway IP, and a few other things) from the PPP server automatically when it connected. This is a newer extension to the PPP protocol. However since Windows and Mac OS 9 had it...
