-This guide is useful for anyone who would like to do PPP networking experimentation or have a computer connect to the Internet without a network card. It could also be useful for anyone who would like to experiment with a Virtual ​Modem. Since pretty much every IBM compatible computer has a RS-232 serial port, technically you could connect any computer to the Internet, or any other network, as long as there is a way to use dial-up PPP. Windows 3.0, 3.1 and 3.11 will need an extra program called Trumpet Winsock, but Windows 95 and later operating systems have built-in Dial-up networking.+This guide is useful for anyone who would like to do PPP networking experimentation or have a computer connect to the Internet without a network card. It could also be useful for anyone who would like to experiment with a Simulated ​Modem. Since pretty much every IBM compatible computer has a RS-232 serial port, technically you could connect any computer to the Internet, or any other network, as long as there is a way to use dial-up PPP. Windows 3.0, 3.1 and 3.11 will need an extra program called Trumpet Winsock, but Windows 95 and later operating systems have built-in Dial-up networking. I will be adding Microsoft TCP/IP-32 for Windows 3.1 support soon.
