-This guide describes how to get a Windows 95/98/Me computer connected on the network using only the serial port of the computer ​and a [[Virtual Modem]] PPP interface software running on the network host machine, such as a Raspberry Pi. If you have not already, please follow the [[Guides:​Virtual Modem|instructions how to set up Virtual Modem]] as it is a prerequisite for this tutorial. Make sure the serial cable is connected between the Raspberry Pi and the Windows computer, and that the vmodem.sh script is running on it before attempting this part of the guide. ​+This tutorial will get a Windows 95/98/Me computer ​(//the client computer//​) ​connected on the network using only it'​s ​serial port and a [[Virtual Modem]] PPP interface software running on the Raspberry Pi (//the host computer//​),​ or another host device running the virtual modem interface software.

 You can connect to the Internet with the built-in Dial-up Networking ("​DUN"​ for short) of Windows 95/98/Me, no network card needed. We will go through the steps how to set up a modem and then a dial-up connection on your Windows 95 (or later) computer. For the sake of completeness,​ we will then test the connection using Netscape Communicator 4.0, but you're free to use any web browser. ​ You can connect to the Internet with the built-in Dial-up Networking ("​DUN"​ for short) of Windows 95/98/Me, no network card needed.

 For you to connect to VModem running on your Raspberry Pi, you must first tell Windows 95 that you have a modem that you can use, and it is connected to your serial port on your computer and it is a Standard Modem. Once you've set up the modem, you can set up the dial-up connection. ​ For you to connect to VModem running on your Raspberry Pi, you must first tell Windows 95 that you have a modem that you can use, and it is connected to your serial port on your computer and it is a Standard Modem.

   * If your dial-up connection works, but you're absolutely not able to open any website, even after setting up the proxy server, try checking your IP configuration. In Windows 95, 98 and Me you can view your settings by running **WINIPCFG** from the **Run dialog box**.   * If your dial-up connection works, but you're absolutely not able to open any website, even after setting up the proxy server, try checking your IP configuration.
