Modem Control Panel

The Modem Control Panel

    If you have an external modem, but do not know what kind, search the modem for a label with a manufacturer name. Then select the appropriate modem from the "Modem" menu.

Remote Access/PPP Control Panel

The Remote Access Control Panel

This is where the account information is entered. This control panel may also be called "PPP".

  1. Type your SnowCrest username in the "Name" box. If your SnowCrest e-mail is "", you would only enter "myname" here. This box is case-sensitive.
  2. Type your SnowCrest password in the "Password" box. This box is case-sensitive.
  3. If you want your Mac to remember your password (so you do not have to type it everytime you connect), put a check in the "Save Password" box.
  4. Make sure "Use Dial Assist" is unchecked.
  5. Type in your SnowCrest local access number in the "Number" box. Remember that it is your responsibility to verify with your local telephone company that the SnowCrest access number is a local call for you.
