Files you need to download
By default, only local network and Internet connections are supported by the FirstClass client. If you are using Windows and have a modem connection, you must install files that support your protocol. These files are available from the Downloads section of our web site.
Download the appropriate .fcp file to the FirstClass FCP folder.
If you are going to use a modem, you must also download the appropriate modem file (.mdm) to the FirstClass Modems folder.

Protocols used by modem connections
http://fclass.vaniercollege.qc.ca/Help/FAV1-0005B48B/FOV1-0005B48C/FOV1-0005B48D/S0025246E-00252474.0/2102006_15909_0.gif?src=.PNG Only applies to Windows.
Because there are different types of modem connections, there are different protocols that support these connections:


Protocol
Description
Windows modem (TAPI)
Windows NT 4.0, Windows 95, or later, include TAPI, a technology that lets you configure modem connections using system information already known to Windows.
FirstClass modem
Use this protocol if you want to use FirstClass' own Windows modem handling. You will have to supply more information than you would for a Windows modem connection.
This protocol is available for compatibility with older Windows systems and connection configurations. If you have a newer Windows system, we recommend that you use the Windows modem protocol.
ISDN (CAPI) Adapter
ISDN is a digital telephone line that provides greater speed than a regular telephone line.

To configure your particular modem protocol, you need the information listed below. If you do not have all of this information, contact your administrator.
