Re: [NTLK] Connection problems with 130 on XP/98

I have used connection software with a Win95/98 PC with no problems, so
there must be something going on. Can you give us more detail?

Let's start with the basics: what connection software are you using,

I would be willing to work with you off-list if that would help. Email me
privately if that would be of benefit to you.
