The following information is necessary to configure Internet software for WestNet. Before using this information, you should see if you can use your package's specific information on our Help Page.

Your IP Number

IP numbers are usually assigned dynamicly. Most software defaults to this configuration (MAC users should select "Obtain Address from Server"). However, you will have a static domain name assigned to your machine, no matter what modem you are dialed in to. This will be of the form username.dialup.westnet.com .
