Configuring Your Cervo Dialup Connection

You can configure your Internet connection manually using the Windows default dialer. Configuring your dialup connection for Windows 95/98/NT/XP is dependent on the browser that you will be using. Please select your browser for detailed instructions.

Some browser installation programs will automatically initiate the following configuration processes. In these cases, use this documentation to follow along with the installation.


Internet Explorer 4x
Internet Explorer 5x and 6
Netscape Navigator

Note: One of the most Frequently Asked Questions from users is "What are my POP and SMTP mail server addresses?" Well, look no further than right here.

Incoming Mail (POP) : mail.cervo.net
Outgoing Mail (SMTP): mail.cervo.net

Hope this helps.
