The Draconis Drivers
The drivers of the Draconis package are necessary, for the communication between the ATARI (or compatible) and the called Internet node of an Internet provider.

This will be managed through the protocols TCP/IP and PPP, which are the most common used protocols in the Internet. With these drivers/protocols it is possible to connect to any standard Internet provider.

Beside the drivers and the dialer, there is also a configuration wizard included. This wizard provides you with an easy to use user interface, a fast and easy installation and configuration. For a detailed configuration there is also a detailed configuration program available, which allows also the setting of each special parameter.

The wizard allows an easy and fast configuration, of providers, which are included in the wizards database or providers that need a Windows® compliant configuration. Also a modem database is included to allow an easy configuration of your modem.
