More Description

You Need This Book to Access the World Wide Web and to Use Graphical Internet Tools

Using Netscape, Mosaic, WinGopher, and other new graphical programs requires a Serial Line Internet Protocol (SLIP) or a Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) connection to the Internet. But few computer users know how to establish such a connection. Fewer still know of the many benefits of graphical Internet access beyond surfing the World Wide Web. The SLIP/PPP Connection provides all the information you need to overcome the now-legendary obstacles of establishing these special Internet accounts and to achieve smooth, graphical access to the World Wide Web and the rest of the Internet. Written by internationally acclaimed Internet guru Paul Gilster, this is the first complete, step-by-step guide to getting, using, and maintaining a SLIP or PPP connection. You'll be able to select, find, and download the right hardware and software for every Internet application.

The book features:

  • Step-by-step instructions on how to make your PC or Mac SLIP- or PPP-ready
  • Critical and hard-to-find techniques that make it easier than ever to install and troubleshoot software that runs under a SLIP/PPP connection
  • Everything you need to know about loading and using Netscape, Mosaic, cello, WinWAIS, HGopher, Newswatcher, and other shareware, freeware, and client programs that run with SLIP/PPP
  • Tips on how to best take advantage of e-mail, FTP, USENET, WAIS, Telnet, and other protocols with SLIP/PPP
