1. What do I need to get A.M. working on a Mac?

Access Manager requires Open Transport 1.1.2 or later.
After installing the AM software:

In the TCP/IP Control Panel, select the following:
Connect via: Sympatico
Configure: Using PPP Server

In TCP/IP Control Panel "Options..." (Edit >> User Mode: Advanced)
Make TCP/IP "Active"
Select "Load only when needed"

In the Access Manager window:
UNCHECK both: "Prompt me before connecting" and: "Launch Sympatico after
Connection"
Idle Time-out Value: No Time-out

2. How do I get A.M. for Mac to log in on boot?
Using the AppleScript editor, create the following script:

Tell application "Access Manager"
Connect
quit
End tell

Have the script editor check the Syntax -- it may ask you to locate
Access Manager. Then, save the script as a Run-Only Application with
"Never Show Startup Screen" checked.
Place this script in your Startup Items folder >> instead of Access
Manager.

A.M. 1.1 does not work with this script. What can I do?

-- Open Access Manager, establish connection
tell application "Access Manager"
activate
if ((ConnectState) < 2) then
Connect
repeat while ((ConnectState) < 2)
delay 1
end repeat

end if
-- close up the "Access Manager"

quit
end tell

3. What program will allow me to share my PPPoE based xDSL (or cable) connection with another Mac?
IPNR from sustworks and now also SoftRouter by Vicomsoft
4. I've removed EnterNet / Access Manager from my Mac should I do anything else?
You should reinstall your Open Transport (OT).
5. How do I adjust MTU values on a MAC?
This requires that you purchase IPNet Tuner from Sustainable Softworks.Note: Note: The newest release of EnterNet 300 5.09 (March 11, 2000) adjusts MTU values to 1400 so MTU adjustments are no longer needed.
6. I'm trying to get my Mac to connect via the Efficient Networks (Formerly NTS) Tunnelbuilder client over PPPoE.
This is a known limitation and will be corrected in the latest release.
7. Does SoftRouter by Vicomsoft have built in PPPoE?
Yes, you do not need to use EnterNet, Access Manager, or MacPoET when you use SoftRouter.

8. Will EnterNet work with the AirPort wireless system? (A.M. also works)
