HP 300LX Series Palmtop PCs - Connecting to UUNET in the U.S.

Issue:
Unable to connect to the e-mail host, alterdial.uu.net.
Solution
To set up Remote Networking, follow the instructions below:
  1. Turn your unit off and attach the AC adapter.
  2. Insert your PC card modem.
  3. Turn the unit on.
  4. Double-tap the communications folder, and then Remote Networking.
  5. Double-tap Make New Connection.
  6. Type a name for the connection (for example, name of ISP).
  7. Select a modem. Your modem supplier should be listed on the drop-down menu next to the modem box. If it is not, cancel the operation, remove and reinsert the modem card, then try again.
  8. Although many ISPs do not require you to manually enter your user name and password, it is often helpful to use a terminal window when troubleshooting remote connections. If the connection is successful, try to configure the network connection without using a terminal window. For the first attempt, however, tap configure and tap the box marked "Use terminal window after dialing."
  9. Enter the area code, if any (without a zero if you do not enter it when dialing internationally), local number, and country code. If you always want the country code and area code to be dialed (for example, using a GSM mobile phone with a roaming service), then check the "use country code and area code" box.
  10. If this connection will also be used for browsing the web, tap the TCP/IP Setting box. Otherwise tap Finish, then skip to step number 15.
  11. The Internet Protocol (IP) addressed will be dynamically assigned from a pool of free addresses, so the "Server-assigned IP address" should be left checked.
  12. The "Use software compression" and "Use IP header compression" boxes should normally be left untouched. If you do have a problem connecting, then ask your ISP about these settings.
  13. Tap the "Server-assigned name server addresses" box and enter the Primary DNS and Secondary DNS settings. At the time this document was written, they are as follows:
    • Primary Name Server: 198.6.1.1
    • Secondary Name Server: 198.6.1.2
  14. Tap OK, and then Finish to end the process.
  15. To test the connection, double tap the new icon with the name you assigned to it.
  16. You will be asked for the user name and password that your ISP has provided. You can avoid reentering the password each time by tapping the Save Password box. The user name is your PPP Login Account Name, and is in the form UU/ppp00000 (UU must be typed in uppercase).
  17. Check that the dialing location in the right-hand box is correct, and that the phone number listed is correct. Tap connect.
  18. The modem should dial the number. If you have a problem, check that the remote line is answering by dialing the number with a normal telephone.
To set up Internet mail, follow the steps below:
  1. Double-tap the Inbox icon on the desktop, then tap Compose and Options.
  2. Tap the Services tab.
  3. Tap Add and choose Internet Mail.
  4. Type a name for the mail service (for example, your ISP name).
  5. Select the name of the Remote Networking connection that is used to access this mail service (for example, your ISP name).
  6. Enter the name of the POP server given by your ISP in the mail server setting.
  7. Enter the POP mailbox user name in the User ID setting. This will typically have the form mail00000@pop.net
  8. Enter the POP mailbox password in the Password setting. You can tap the Remember password box to avoid having to reenter your password at every log-on.
  9. If the SMTP server name is different from the POP server name, then you should enter it in the "Host for sending messages if different from mail host" setting. This will typically not be needed for UUNET.
  10. Tap Finished.
