Creating a New Connection Backup Servers

The private network may include one or more backup VPN servers to use if the primary server is not available. Your system administrator tells you whether to enable backup servers. Information on backup servers can download automatically from the Concentrator, or you can manually enter this information.

To enable and configure a connection to the Internet through dial-up networking, select the Connect to Internet via dial-up check box. This feature is not selected by default.

You can connect to the Internet using the Cisco VPN Client application in either of the following ways:

■ Microsoft Dial-Up Networking (DUN)—If you have DUN phonebook entries and have enabled the Connect to Internet via dial-up feature, Microsoft DUN is enabled by default. To link your Cisco VPN Client connection entry to a DUN entry, click the Phonebook Entry drop-down arrow and choose an entry from the menu. The Cisco VPN Client then uses this DUN entry to automatically dial into the Microsoft network before making the VPN connection to the private network.

■ Third-party dial-up program—If you have no DUN phonebook entries and have enabled the Connect to Internet via dial-up feature, then the third-party dial-up application is enabled by default. Click the Browse button to enter the name of the program in the Application field. This application launches the connection to the Internet. This string you choose or enter in this field is the path name to the command that starts the application and the name of the command; for example: c:\isp\ispdialer.exe dialEngineering. Your network administrator might have set this up for you. If not, consult your network administrator.
