Internet connection/dialup settings in POPcon PRO

Screenshot of internet connection settings in POPcon PRO

When POPcon PRO retrieves mail it needs to connect to the internet. You can choose between two different connection schemes:

Direct Connection: POPcon PRO tries to connect to POP3 servers directly without using the dial-up networking settings. Use this option if you are connected to the internet via a router or another computer.

Dial-Up Connection: Use this option if you want POPcon PRO to dial up to the internet using one of the dial-up accounts you already configured on the POPcon PRO server computer.

POPcon PRO needs to have the following information to use dial-up networking:

Connection to use: The Dial-Up networking account you want POPcon PRO to use for dialing into the internet. Attention: You can only use the dial-up accounts configured on the computer POPcon PRO Server runs on, not the Accounts the computer you use POPcon PROAdmin from might have.

Username: To keep the standard dial-up networking from asking you (probably at the server terminal) for the username and password of the dial-up account it is about to dial, POPcon PRO needs to know the username and password of that account as well.

Password: See Username

Do not disconnect…: Leaves connection active after POPcon PRO finishes downloading mail

Trigger mail when dial-up connection active: Allows POPcon PRO to utilize an already open internet connection. POPcon PRO will check periodically if the specified connection is already opened by another program. If so, it will download new mail periodically. Please also enter the number of minutes POPcon PRO waits between two mail retrievals.

Trigger mail retrieval when ANY connection active: Triggers mail retrieval also when ANY other internet connection is open, not only the one specified on top of this dialog.

Apart from the dial up networking configuration you need to configure the proxy server you are using (if you are connecting through a proxy). This setting is used for the downloads of the antivirus and license updates.
