So do I. (each time).

ttyS0. Someone explained that to you in a preceeding post. You might
browse the archieve to read upper in the thread :)

Most probably not.

Nope, PAP then tone. Peer Authentication Protocol, if I don't mistake
is the complete name of PAP ?

To resolve the dns ? no, technically, I don't know.

Hum. So did mine time ago. I explained politely to them that my OS would 
no run Internet access without it, then I could purely tear the contract 
into pieces :)
I sure got the primary domain name server, and dialout number.
(Very important to have it too).

> No other OS asks for this info (I think because it's dynamic DNS).
Each OS has slight differences on how to configure. But it has to
be configured somehow.

It is maybe possible to see it in some configuration files on one
of your machines. No idea which one.
Personnally I used my telephone, in which I did the Internet Access 
Furnisher number.
Best greetings, Joyce Markoll.
