For dialup networking, you should touch to Network setting in Control
Panel. You should only setup the IP address in the dialup networking. As
you have setup the Network for TIG DNS name resolution, after you dial
up to SoCS, NT will try to resolve the name from the TIG DNS Server then
SoCS's DNS. However, it is very strange for you telnet to work but
Netscape... I suggest you to disable your Network for TIG in control
panel and set them up in the TIG dialup networking.
