Wanted to give LegacyOS 2.1 a try but I don't see the PupDial app anywhere to use my serial dialup modem. Am I just missing it. If not, how do I connect/

PupDial works with soft-modems? I thought you always had to have either a hardware modem or external serial hardware modem.

I tried that Legacy 4 Mini and I think it's way better than Legacy OS2. It comes with PupDial already and seems just as fast as PL 5.2.8 using a KDE manager I guess.

I've always found the desktop environment and window manager confusing in PL and it's many derivatives. Could someone explain them to me? Thanks.

Read closely the last paragraph of rerwin's first post here.
(He currently maintains Pupdial.)

Legacy OS 2.1 LTS comes with 3 Dialup tools? Back in my dialup days GKdial worked the best.
