Dialup Connection Issues
- I keep getting dropped from the Internet or have trouble getting connected to the Internet!
Establishing and maintaining a stable Internet connection on a rural telephone line can sometimes be difficult. Your connection relies on three primary factors: the modem, your telephone line and the server. When a customer is experiencing difficulties connecting or staying connected, process of elimination helps determine the cause.
Telephone Service is federally regulated. This means the telephone companies must maintain a standard of telephone service to meet these guidelines. Often, the same equipment utilized in maintaining standards for telephone service interferes with the Internet Connection. Weather also contributes to problems on rural telephone lines. Moisture often causes static or noise on your line.
Although 56k Modems are the standard, obtaining that speed is rarely achieved on any telephone line. This becomes even more complicated rurally. We have found that different types of modems are better able to filter or tolerate factors occurring on rural telephone lines. This means your modem performed well in one area - it may not in another

- If I developed a webpage - what will the URL be? How do I set up my URL?
Establishing Your URL
After you have created your webpage, there are two methods of setting up your URL: Personal or Commercial.
PERSONAL: Every Nemont customer is assigned 10 megabytes of web space, free with their Internet account. This means customers can use this space for whatever they like at no additional charge, provided the website does not exceed 10 meg. (A megabyte is the measurement of space on the server. This space can be accessed on the Internet. The address is www.nemont.net/~username.
For example, if your username or e-mail address is customer or firstname.lastname@example.org - then the address of your personal space would be www.nemont.net/~customer. Those individuals wanting to access your site would simply type in that address from anywhere to view it.
COMMERICAL: Many businesses prefer to register a domain name. These URLs, or web addresses, are easier to remember but do incur additional costs.
For example, if my business name is Trouble Shooters then I may want to register a domain name of www.troubleshooters.com.
These URLs are registered with a registrar like Network Solutions which may be found at www.networksolutions.com. There will be a fee for domain name registration. Nemont will register your URL for you at the cost of $10. If you will be registering your own domain name and will have Nemont host this page you will need the following settings for the registration:
Primary host name: smokey.montanavision.net Primary host address: 184.108.40.206 Secondary host name: ns2.montanavision.net Secondary host address: 220.127.116.11
Nemont will host your website for a monthly charge of $25.00 per month. When the commercial website account is set up, a username and password are assigned to the owner for access to that space. Please see FTP instructions for help transferring your files to the Internet. Please contact our office at 1-800-636-6680 or email us at email@example.com if you have any further questions.
- How do I FTP my webpage to my web space?
File Transfer Protocol (FTP)
FTP is moving the files from your computer onto the Internet. There are many software packages available for this procedure. One example would be WS-FTP.
The settings needed to correctly login into your FTP program will depend on the method you selected to set up your URL.
If you chose to set up your URL in PERSONAL space, see the following login information;
Profile Name: NEMONT Host Name/Address: nemont.net Host Type: AUTOMATIC DETECT User ID: username Password: password
Click OK to login. Once logged in you will notice the directory of your computer files in one window and that of the server in the other. Double click the public_html directory first. All files must be transferred into this directory if they are to be viewed on the server. You can now find your webpage files and transfer those files onto the server.
If you chose to set up your URL in COMMERICAL space and have registered a domain name, see the following login information:
Profile Name: NEMONT Host Name/Address: Your domain name (Ex. www.domainname.com) Host Type: AUTOMATIC DETECT Username: username (Username assigned to your website) Password: password (Password assigned to your website)
Click OK to login. Once logged in you will notice the directory of your computer files in one window and that of the server in the other. Double click the data directory first. All files must be transferred into this directory if they are to be viewed on the server. You can now find your webpage files and transfer those files onto the server.
USING VIRTUAL WEB SERVERS: Many webpage development software applications contain virtual web servers that do the work of transferring webpage files onto the server for you. Although these servers work well if set up correctly, they often send numerous files that are not related or needed by your webpage, which needlessly accumulates web space. Due to the diversity in these virtual web servers and the development software, please contact us if you have difficulty with the set up. The settings will be very similar to those shown above. Most will require a destination file on the server, as follows, depending on your URL setup:
PERSONAL: destination directory: public_html
COMMERICAL: destination directory: data
