Connecting to the University's Network

To connect to the University's computing network, start a software application that uses the PPP connection (e.g., Secure Shell, Netscape, Internet Explorer). You will automatically be prompted to make the connection.

If you need to install any of these Internet applications or if you need to install anti-virus protection, go to the Windows Software section of the UD Network Connection CD.
