Follow instructions on the screen. Support and Troubleshooting Below are frequently asked questions about using the iPass service. If our troubleshooting tips don’t help resolve your issue, please contact the helpdesk at your ISP or company. Difficulty connecting to the access number Try an alternate number within the region you are traveling. If you can connect to another number it may indicate the initial access number is temporarily unavailable. Make sure you dial the required prefixes and local dial code for the region. Many hotels require you to dial a number to get an outside line. Also, pick up the phone and dial the number yourself – you may hear a message explaining the problem – e.g., the hotel PBX system is overloaded. Make sure you have the correct modem specified. No dial tone or modem sound Make sure there is a phone line, the phone line is good, and the phone line is connected to the computer and the phone jack. Check to see if your modem is turned on and connected to your computer and the phone system. Make sure the modem volume is not turned off or disabled. If the system is digital (versus analog), you need a special adapter to connect. You could also request access to a fax line, as it must be analog to function. Sometimes dial tones from different parts of the world are interpreted differently by your modem (e.g., your modem “thinks” the phone is busy, when in reality it is a pulsing dial tone. Try setting your Windows software to not detect a dial tone when dialing: 1. Open Start¨Settings¨Control Panel¨Modems. 2. On the Modems Properties window, highlight your modem and click Properties. 3. Click the Connection tab and uncheck “wait for dial tone before dialing.” iPassConnect User Guide– 092399 8 iPass Inc.
  9. 9. 4. Click Advanced. 5. In the Extra Settings box, enter ATX3 6. Click OK until you can close out of the Modem Properties window. On some machines, you need to reboot for changes to take effect. Check your dialer properties to see that you have the correct modem selected. You may not have a modem in the computer; if that is the case you need to install one. Continuing to hear loud modem noise while trying to connect The phone line might already be in use. The modem volume may be set too loud; turn down the volume. The modem may not be negotiating properly; manually set the modem (contact your helpdesk for support). Error message saying incorrect password Verify and re-enter the login/password (for possible typos made while entering username, domain and password). Make sure your CAPS LOCK key is not depressed (or depressed if you have all caps in your username and password). It is possible that the authentication server or iPass RoamServer at your ISP or company may be down or offline; check with your helpdesk. Your user account may no longer be active. Check with your helpdesk. Busy signal when trying to dial in Try to connect through another number, or if that is not an option, wait a few minutes and try connecting again. Sometimes dial tones from different parts of the world are interpreted differently by your modem (e.g., your modem “thinks” the phone is busy, when in reality it is a pulsing dial tone. Try setting your Windows software to not detect a dial tone when dialing: 1. Open Start¨Settings¨Control Panel¨Modems. 2. On the Modems Properties window, highlight your modem and click Properties. 3. Click the Connection tab and uncheck “wait for dial tone before dialing.” 4. Click OK. Password authentication is slow (e.g. more than 60 seconds) It is possible that the authentication server or iPass RoamServer at your ISP or company may be down or offline; check with your helpdesk. You may have a dial script problem. See “Dial scripts are not running properly” below. There could be an iPass software error. Upgrade the iPass software to the newest version or contact your helpdesk. Dial scripts are not running properly As a user you cannot tell if your dial scripts are running correctly. Dial script problems could result in a bad password message, busy signal, wrong number being dialed and more. The best way to prevent a scripting failure is to enter the access point number through the phone book. – do not manually enter the access number, even if you memorized the number. By entering the phone number through the phone book, you are attaching the correct dial script. If you feel you are missing the dial up scripting tool, check and see if the scripting tool is installed. Find and run iswscpt.exe. No answer/human answer Try dialing into another number; the access number you are dialing may be inactive or temporarily unavailable. The iPass service offers multiple access points in major business centers. iPassConnect User Guide– 092399 9 iPass Inc.
  10. 10. Update the phonebook in your iPass client software. If you do not have client software that has an automatically updating phonebook, then you should manually update your phonebook monthly. Contact your helpdesk for more information. If you have hand edited the phone number, try creating a new connection from scratch. Check to make sure the dial properties are filled out correctly. No local access number in your location In some instances, you may not find a particular city listed in iPassConnect, but there might be numbers local or close to where you are. Check if there are other cities within the same area code. These might be local numbers. If you are in the United States, you can use the 800 number or an access number to the nearest city. If you are outside of the United States, check in-country rates with the local operator. In many countries, it is very inexpensive to dial long-distance within the country. Connection drops/disconnects in the middle of a session This is most often a result of electro magnetic interference (EMI) or a “noisy” phone line. This happens most frequently in countries with poor telecommunications systems or when the line you are trying to connect to has audible interference. Try redialing the access number. If you remain connected to the Internet but are inactive, some access points automatically disconnect you. If you remain connected to the Internet but are inactive, your PC might be set to automatically disconnect you. Access to the web is slow Electro magnetic interference (EMI) -- a “noisy” phone line -- often causes slow transmission speed; this is often the case when you are connecting from a hotel. This can cause modems to connect at a slower baud rate because the modem has to correct for data errors. Screen is blank Check that the computer is plugged into an electrical outlet and the monitor is turned on. The monitor may be in “sleep” mode; wake it up by moving the mouse or pressing the Enter key. iPassConnect User Guide– 092399 10 iPass Inc.
  11. 11. The iPass Dial Wizard for Macintosh -- User Guide There is currently no Macintosh version of iPassConnect. Macintosh users should continue to use the iPass Dial Wizard for Macintosh dialer. The iPass Dial Wizard for Macintosh is the iPass client dialer for the Macintosh Operating system. System Requirements Installation Usage Instructions Phone Book Updating Support and Troubleshooting Known Problems System Requirements • Mac OS 7.5.3 or later (we recommend Mac OS 8.5 or later) • 1.5 MB RAM • Open Transport (OT) version 1.x or later • Open Transport/PPP (OT/PPP) version 1.0.2 or later If you are using another TCP/IP stack or PPP implementation, you can not use the iPass Dial Wizard. Both OT and OT/PPP can be obtained from http://asu.info.apple.com . To find the version of your system software, open the Apple menu and select About this Computer. To verify you are running OT and OT/PPP, look in the Control Panels folder (located in your systems folder). • If you find TCP/IP, you are running OT. • If you find MacTCP, you are running the older MacTCP and need to upgrade to OT. • If you find PPP (in Mac OS 8.5 and later, this is called Remote Access), you have OT/PPP installed. If they are not, you need to install OT/PPP. To know the version of OT and OT/PPP you are running, open the PPP control panel and select Get Info from the File menu. Installing the iPass Dial Wizard for Macintosh 1. Download the software from our web site. The file appears on your desktop as a binhex file. 2. Use Stuffit Expander to extract the file. Note: Your browser might do this automatically. 3. Verify the POP Database and the Country Database files, along with Scripts folder, are in the iPass Dial Wizard folder. If not, delete the iPass Dial Wizard folder and extract them again. If the files are still incomplete, contact technical support for assistance. Installing for Mac OS (versions before 8.5): iPassConnect User Guide– 092399 11 iPass Inc.
  12. 12. 1. In the Control Panel folder, open the TCP/IP control panel. 2. Select PPP in the Connect via pull-down menu. 3. Verify you have provided Domain Name Service (DNS) entry The DNS entry is shown as Name server addr.: . The Mac configuration requires a DNS IP address to be specifically configured to get proper name/address translation. If you do not have one, ask our technical support group for one. Ensure that the DNS entry you are given is accessible from outside any firewalls that might be in place. The iPass Dial Wizard does not negotiate DNS settings. It is assumed that your modem is properly configured through the Modem control panel and you were able to make a successful connection to the Internet prior to the Dial Wizard Installation. Now that you have the Dial Wizard installed, make a connection to a local iPass number to ensure you are set up successfully. We recommend that you get set up before traveling. It is much easier, and less expensive, to get technical support while you are still at home. 4. Close the TCP/IP window. Installing for Mac OS (version 8.5 or later): 1. Open the Remote Access control panel. 2. Click Options. 3. Click the Protocol tab. 4. From the Use Protocol pull-down menu, select PPP. Note: Do not leave the pull-down menu on the Automatic default. 5. Make sure Connect to a command-line post: is unchecked. Note: The remaining check boxes can be configured for your use. It is assumed that your modem is properly configured through the Modem control panel and you were able to make a successful connection to the Internet prior to the iPass Dial Wizard Installation. Now that you have the iPass Dial Wizard installed, make a connection to a local iPass number to ensure you are set up successfully. Using the iPass Dial Wizard 1. Double-click the iPass desktop icon. The New Access Point window appears. Note: After your first use, the program starts with the iPass Dial Wizard window. 2. Select the country and region where you are located. 3. Select the phone number you wish to dial. 4. Click OK. The Phone Number Modification window appears. 5. Make any changes to the Phone Number Modification window and click OK. The Edit Configuration window appears. 6. Verify all information is correct and enter your password. Example: jon@abc.com, when the user name is jon and the domain name is abc.com. The domain name is typically the name of your ISP or company and is usually the part of your email address after (but not including) the @ sign. 7. Click OK. The Edit Configuration window closes and the connection is on the iPass Dial Wizard window. iPassConnect User Guide– 092399 12 iPass Inc.
  13. 13. 8. Click Dial. To delete a dial connection, highlight the connection on the iPass Dial Wizard window and click Delete. Upgrading the iPass Dial Wizard Phone Book Newer versions of the iPass Dial Wizard phone book are available every 30 days. To update your phone book, reinstall the newer version of the iPass Dial Wizard. We recommend you uninstall the old files and icons before performing the new installation. Uninstalling the iPass Dial Wizard for Macintosh 1. Move the iPass Dial Wizard folder to the trash. 2. Reinstall the latest version of the Dial Wizard from your corporate site or ISP. Support and Troubleshooting Below are some common troubleshooting suggestions when using the iPass Dial Wizard for Macintosh. If our troubleshooting tips do not help resolve your issue, please contact our technical support group. What if I follow the dial-in procedure but can't get connected? If you have problems connecting, please check the following: • The phone line has a dial tone before connecting it to your modem. • The phone line is connected well to your modem. It helps to turn the modem sound up so you can hear that there is a dial tone and the modem is working. • Your Modem control panel has the correct modem selected. • PPP is selected from the TCP/IP control panel. • You have the proper DNS entry (for Mac OS versions before 8.5) • You know how to dial from the country you are in; dialing in foreign countries varies from location to location. • Your user name and password are entered correctly. For example, enter jon@abc.com, when the user name is jon and domain name is abc.com. The domain name is typically the name of your ISP or company and is usually the part of your email address after the @ sign. Typically it takes 30 seconds for modem negotiation and 10-30 seconds for your password verification and authentication. • You have enough memory. You need to have at least 1.5 MB of free RAM in order to run the iPass Dial Wizard and establish a PPP connection. How do I connect to an iPass access point? When connecting with iPass you must use the iPass client software. The options are iPass MCM for Windows 95/98/NT, iPass Dial Wizard for Windows 95/98, or the iPass Dial Wizard for Macintosh Mac OS 7.5.3 or later. Not only does the iPass client software have the phone numbers for you to select, but also includes other key properties, such as the connection scripts associated with those phone numbers. If you are not using one of these products, you will typically have problems connecting. You can get the iPass client software from our Software Download page. How can I be certain I have enough memory allocated to run the iPass Dial Wizard? Make sure the iPass Dial Wizard has enough memory allocated to it. To check: 1. Select the iPass Dial Wizard icon in the Finder. 2. Select Get Info from the File menu. iPassConnect User Guide– 092399 13 iPass Inc.
  14. 14. For Mac OS (versions before 8.5): 1. Check the lower right corner for a section titled Memory Requirements. 2. Increase the number in the Preferred Size box. 3. Close the window. 4. Try the iPass Dial Wizard again. For Mac OS (version 8.5 or later): 1. Select Memory from the Show: pull-down menu. 2. Increase the number in the Preferred Size box. 3. Close the window. 4. Try the iPass Dial Wizard again. What if I get a busy signal or can't connect even after I've had a successful connection? In this case, you should first try another number. iPass often works with many service providers in major business centers so if one access point is congested or a service provider suffers a temporary outage, there are alternate numbers to dial into. Known Problems There is a bug in versions of Open Transport prior to 2.0.1. This bug causes instability when exceptions in the dialing process or login process occur. To accommodate this instability, the iPass Dial Wizard for Macintosh quits after any exceptional event. It also quits after making a successful connection and disconnection. If you are running Mac OS 8.5 or later (or Open Transport 2.0.1 or later), this behavior is not necessary, since the bug has been fixed. iPassConnect User Guide– 092399 14 iPass Inc.
