OS/2 Warp v3/OS/2 Warp Connect v3 Required:

  1. You must have already installed the OS/2 Warp Internet Access Kit, located in the BonusPak. (If you have not done this, please do it now before proceeding)
  2. You must have shutdown and rebooted after the install.

NOTE: If you have OS/2 Warp (Red Spine Box), you will need the latest dialer, as the dialer that came with this specific version of OS/2 Warp doesn't have the needed PPP support. If you are running OS/2 Warp Connect (Red or Blue) or the OS/2 Warp (Blue Spine Box) this is not necessary.

  1. You must obtain an account from OneNet

OS/2 Warp v4 Required:

  1. You must have already installed the TCP/IP package as part of your base Warp install. (If you have not done this, please run Selective Install now and install it before proceeding)
  2. You must have shutdown and rebooted after the install.
  3. You must obtain an account from OneNet

Getting your Internet folder set up: (Optional)

  1. Open up the Information Superhighway folder (Unless you moved it, it should be on your desktop).
  2. Open the IBM Internet Connection for OS/2 folder.
  3. Open the Internet Utilities folder.
  4. With your right mouse button (RMB), select the Dial Other Internet Providers icon. Holding the RMB down, drag your mouse to the IBM Internet Connection for OS/2 folder and drop it by letting go of the RMB.
  5. Select the IBM Internet Dialer icon in the IBM Internet Connection for OS/2 folder and move it to the Internet Utilities folder. Use the same procedure you just completed in step 4 to accomplish this.
  6. Close the Internet Utilities folder by double-clicking the Left Mouse Button (LMB) on the icon in the upper left corner of the folder.

Configuring the Dialer for OneNet

  1. Start the Dial Other Internet Providers program by double-clicking on the icon with the LMB.
  2. Fill out the respective pages of the dialer as detailed below. Substitute your LoginID and Password where appropriate.
