LCC Home Internet Access for Macintosh Classic
To setup this software you must determine your OS version. To do so, start your com-
puter and go to the colored apple in the upper left corner of your screen, and down to
About This Computer or Macintosh. In the upper right corner of the opened window, it
will show the OS version. You must be running OS 8.5.1 through 9.2.2 to use LCC
Home Internet. Minimum hardware requirements: G3 or better with 64 MB RAM and 4
GB Hard Drive.
Setting up LCC Home Internet
Go to the Apple in the top left corner of your screen, come down to Control Panels, over
to Remote Access and let go. Enter your LCC Home Internet user name (not your
GroupWise name) in the name box and your assigned password (eight jumbled letters,
all lower case) in the password box. Check the box to save the password. Enter the
phone number as 463-4737.
Go to File and Quit. When prompted to save the changes, do so.
Again, go to the Apple in the top left corner of your screen (Apple Menu), pull down to
"Control Panels" and let go. You should now have the "Control Panels" window open.
Click once on the Remote Access control panel, then go to "File" and "Make Alias". You

your LCC Home Internet session with this icon.
You may want to use a similar process to create an alias for your browser as well.

Setting up GroupWise WebMail

page and click on the "GroupWise Email" link, to the left of the "Search" box.
You will be presented with a series of five windows having to do with our web site’s
security certificate. In the first window, click the “Next” button. Click “Next’ in the second
window. In the third window, select the option to accept the certificate forever then click
“Next”. Click “Next” on the fourth screen and “Finish” on the last screen.

more certificate message and you should click the continue button. You will have to do
this each time you login to Banyan Intranet Connect. When at the Login Page, book-
mark it to avoid having to retype the address each time. Help with GroupWise WebMail
