cFos High-Speed Connection

cFos DUN Setup

DUN setup will open automatically after successful installation of cFos . But you can also access it manually through the cFos context menu either by selecting "configure cFos " or "configure ISDN connection" / "configure DSL connection:"

Enter a connection and user name, a password and a telephone number (ISDN only) for each connection. Here, you can also choose if you want 'automatic connection' or not. In addition, cFos will allow you to choose among existing user profiles or add new providers for your ISDN/DSL connection (though you should keep in mind that depending on your provider(s) you may be charged for each additional connection). Note as well that if you want to use DSL, you will need to have all required external devices already installed. Please, consult your DSL provider for details.


This page offers step-by-step instructions on how to set up cFos , the Dial-Up Network (DUN) under Windows 95/98/ME and RAS under Windows NT/2000/XP so you can connect to your provider.

DUN Setup under Windows 95/98/ME

For this section, we assume you have already installed cFos and restarted your computer. In case you haven't, you can find step-by-step instructions on installing cFos here .

By default, cFos setup will install the following standard modems: a "DSL Internet" modem and a number of "ISDN, Sync PPP over HDLC" modems. For most DSL and ISDN Internet connections, the appropriate modem should be among these.

But if you want to check their properties or install additional modems, you should follow these steps:

1. First, install the " cFos Modem" by selecting START, SETTINGS, CONTROL PANEL and the "Modems" icon.
Click on "Add" and check the "Select Modem" option with no automatic detection.
Click "Next."
2. Select " cFos Software Bonn" as the modem manufacturer.
On the right, a list of available " cFos Modems" should appear. Choose the model appropriate for the type of connection offered by your provider.
3. Now, please pick a connection port for the modem (e.g., " cFos Port 3").
Click "Next."

The selected modem should now show up on the list of available Windows modems.

 

Part I. Dial-Up Network Setup

1. Select START, PROGRAMS, ACCESSORIES and look for the "DUN" entry.
If you find it, proceed with step 3 and install the TCP/IP protocol, otherwise continue with step 2.
2. To install the DUN, select START, SETTINGS, and CONTROL PANEL.
Find the 'Software' icon. Choose "Windows Setup", select the 'Connections' line, and click on DETAILS.
Mark the box in front of the Dial-Up NETWORK and click "OK." Confirm by clicking "OK" again, which should install a DUN on your computer.
3. Check whether TCP/IP is available for your DUN: Select START, SETTINGS, and CONTROL PANEL. Find the "Network" icon and double-click on it, which will open the 'Network' window.
4. Search for 'TCP/IP protocol' among installed network components.
If it is listed, proceed with step 6 below.
If all you find is two entries reading 'DUN Adaptor' and 'TCP/IP,' there are no other network components installed besides the DUN adaptor. In this case, you should also skip to step 6 , otherwise continue with step 5.
5. To install the TCP/IP protocol on your computer, select the DUN Adaptor and click on 'Add.'
Then select 'Protocol' and click 'Add' again.
Find the 'Microsoft' entry among the manufacturers and 'TCP/IP' among available 'Network Protocols.' Click "OK" and once more to confirm your choice.
6. All changes made will take effect only after Windows has been restarted properly. In other words, if you've just installed the Dial-Up Network or the TCP/IP protocol, you should restart Windows.

 

Part II. Configuring the Dial-Up Network

cFos for T-Online


1. Go to START, PROGRAMS, ACCESSORIES, and select the DUN.
2. Click on 'Create new connection' and enter a name for your new connection.
3. Select a modem that meets the requirements specified by your provider. Usually, this will be the " cFos ISDN, Internet, Sync PPP over HDLC" modem for ISDN and the " cFos DSL, Internet, PPPoE" modem for DSL. Click "Next."
4. Enter your provider's call number and change the 'Country' code accordingly (e.g., for Germany that would be 'Deutschland (49)').
If your phone setup also requires you to dial an outside access code like a '0' or '9', you should prefix your provider's dial-in number with it.
Please do note that for DSL (T-Online) what number you enter doesn't matter, which is why cFos will ignore it when establishing DSL connections.
Click "Next."
5. Connection information should be complete now.
Click on FINISH.
In the DUN folder, an icon with the name chosen in step 2 should appear.
6. Right-click on the new icon, which will bring up a new menu.
Select 'Properties.'
7. Select CONFIGURE and check whether the 'cFos Modem' has been assigned to the right port.
8. Click on 'Server type' and select the appropriate Internet protocol. In most cases, this will be PPP. But if your provider requires SLIP or CSLIP, enter that instead.
9. Under 'Enabled network protocols' deactivate NetBEUI and IPX/SPX. Check again if TCP/IP has been marked (which it should).


New: cFos High-Speed Login

cFos code has been optimized for super-fast Internet login.

For Windows, you must deactivate the "Logon to the network" option of your dial-up connection in the "Pproperties->Server types" setting.

If your ISP doesn't support IP header compression, you should also deactivate it under "Properties -> Server types -> TCP/IP settings." cFos will take care of everything else.

For Windows NT/2000/XP, you do not need to make these changes.



10. Close all windows by selecting "OK." That's it!


DUN Setup for DSL (by T-Online):

Setup of the Dial-Up Network works accordingly for DSL with the following exceptions:

  • If you plan to use DSL with cFos , please select the "cFos, DSL, PPPoE on Card 1" modem. If you have two Ethernet boards, you may have to select the "cFos, DSL, PPPoE on Card 2" modem instead.
  • If you are using T-Online, the user ID should read like it does in this example:
    <Anschlusskennenung><T-Online-Nr.>0001@t-online.de
    If your T-Online number contains less than 12 digits, you have to insert a '#' between the number and '0001' (e.g., xxxxxxxx123456789#0001@t-online.de)
  • Please remember that you must enter "@t-online.de", as your user name would otherwise be rejected. Note also that "t-online.de" is all lower-case. Entering any capitalized letters as in "T-online.de" would terminate a connection immediately!

 


RAS Setup under Windows NT 4.0

Again, we assume you have already installed cFos and restarted your computer. In case you haven't, you can find step-by-step instructions on installing cFos here .

By default, cFos setup will install the following standard modems: a "DSL Internet" modem and a number of "ISDN, Sync PPP over HDLC" modems. For most DSL and ISDN Internet connections, the appropriate modem should be among these.
