SUMMARY

This article describes how to use NetMeeting with America Online (AOL) as your Internet service provider (ISP).

MORE INFORMATION

To use NetMeeting with AOL as your ISP, use AOL version 3.0 or later for Windows 95/98. This software installs an AOL adapter in Network properties and lets you make a 32-bit Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) connection to AOL. NetMeeting does not require additional configuration.

To determine if you are using AOL version 3.0 or later, use either of the following methods:

  • Double-click the Add/Remove Programs tool in Control Panel. AOL version 3.0 for Windows 95/98 should be listed on the Install/Uninstall tab. (To access Control Panel, Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.)
  • On the AOL Help menu, click About AOL. Verify that AOL for Windows 95/98 is listed. If AOL for Windows 95/98 is not listed, contact AOL for an updated version of the AOL software.
NOTE: NetMeeting requires Windows 95/98 and the 32-bit WinSock component. Make sure you are using AOL version 3.0 or later. These versions use the 32-bit WinSock component. Earlier versions of the AOL software use the 16-bit WinSock component.
