I've received so many responses to this one - I should probably write a
Thank you all.
The basic issue is the statement that, "We only provide support for
Windows (95, 99 & NT) and MAC".
I omitted any mention of NetBSD and said I used NT (true).
What I got for my effort was a broken link to my ISP. I had to revert to
my old dialer. Worse yet, the 'new' NT setup
also broke NetBSD when I tried to import the settings.
As for help with PPP protocal setup, one young man told
me: 'They did not use PPP with NT'.
As for providers: My ISP (JPS.NET) is now owned by ONEMAIN
which, I have heard, is passing into Earthlink's hands.
I will go out and study the one's you have suggested.
