A question for Windows'98 TCP/IP Experts ... A local telephony services provider and ISP has recently introduced wireless CDMA phone service to the countryside district where I reside. Due to (some improper?) setting of their CDMA server/router, my friends and I who live in this rural neighbourhood are able to login to the Internet but only by using the 'Win_XP' OS with the "CHAP" (challenge handshake authentication protocol) turned "off" and "PAP"(unencyprited password) turned "on" in :- IE> Tools> Options> Connections> Settings> Properties> Security> Advanced> Settings If either of these two settings is "wrong", the ISPs server returns "Error 691" (Invalid user name or password). CDMA login using the Win_'98 OS is *not* possible. This is because Win_'98 uses "CHAP" encryption by default but the user option to disable "CHAP" _and_ enable "PAP" at the same time is not available in Win'98 afaik. I've edited the Win_'98 registry to enable plain text passwords but this has not helped get thru the ISP's password authentication phase. Do you know of any workarounds to enable login from Win'98 considering the above circumstances? Your views on why the ISP would disable "CHAP" and only allow login if "PAP" is selected would be most welcome. Many Thanks for any feedback. Su Haimi <suhaimi10@time.net.my> _
