Check out our new website at www.protoweb.org.
These pages are left for archive purposes only.
To start using Protoweb, all you need is a computer with an Internet connection and a web browser that supports HTTP and FTP proxies (almost all web browsers do!). You can use a direct connection to the Internet. Just add the proxy server addresses in your Web browser proxy configuration and you're all set!
By using any of the ProtoWeb services, you agree to the terms outlined in the User Agreement.
RetroTech Chris recently made a video showcasing several ways to connect to ProtoWeb! Thank you, Chris!
Not all web browsers are covered here, but the setup is very similar with all browsers.
If you want to simulate the page load times from back in the day (or perhaps are slightly deranged) you may want to choose a proxy server which simulates a 56k modem. If you would like the full Windows Dial-up experience, including dialing phone numbers, you may want to build the Raspberry Pi Virtual Modem. See Raspberry Pi -based Virtual Modem for more information.
