For information on pricing and how to sign up for a PPP account, please contact User Accounts in the Yale Computer Center at 175 Whitney Avenue (432-6627).

    2. The Dial-Up Network Access Software is distributed on six 3.5" floppy disks, and can be obtained at the User Accounts office. The Dial-Up Network Access software is available in both Windows 3.1 and Windows 95 versions. Make sure you obtain the correct version.
