Mac PPP connections

After having major problems trying to get my PPP connection to work under R4.5 on my PowerMac, I had an epiphany (and it didn’t even hurt … much). I switched the cables from the printer port to the modem port and vice versa. My muddled memory came up with a tidbit from the distant past about Apple doing something funny with the printer port on Macs — they enabled them for localtalk connections. Apparently hardware handshaking cables don’t work on the modem port.
Don’t forget to switch the setting in your Dialup Networking preferences.
