VCISP.NET: Good news for Mac and Linux users

Windows not compulsory

Site News There has been some confusion surrounding the availability of our Vulture Capitalist ISP services to Mac and Linux users.

It appears at first sight that running Windows is a prerequisite for signing up with VCISP.NET. Not so. This apparent outrage is due to some poorly-written copy for which we take full responsibility. We apologise for the confusion and in particular to those readers who wrote expressing angry dismay that the Reg had effectively dissed its hardcore tekkie readership.

VCISP.NET can be accessed from Macs and Linux. Have a look at our technical support page where users can find information for a number of operating systems, including setting up a Mac dialup account, and some basic settings for use with other operating systems, including Linux.

You don't need to be a VCISP.NET customer to access these pages, so go and have a shufti at what's available for your particular OS.

Mac customers signing up to VCISP.NET will have the benefit of our ISP's technical phone support for OSes up to and including 9x (not yet for OSX - we're working on it, promise). There is no such support for Linux, but hey, you'd be letting yourself down if you needed it, wouldn't you?

Alternatively, it has been suggested that future VCISP.NET Linux users avail themselves of the ISP's forums facility to share info on how best to use the service. Food for thought...

We hope that this has clarified the matter. If you have any comments on how we can further improve VCISP.NET services, feel free to send them to us here. ®
