Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Freeserve is rolling out new dial-up software which it says will make life easier for its punters accessing the Net.

The ISP claims the free software, called the "Freeserve Connection Kit", can be downloaded in minutes. It kicks in if punters get an engaged tone when trying to get online and automatically dials another access number instead.

Freeserve began rolling out the software a week or so ago and expects to complete the task by July.

However, according to one hacked off Register reader the new software does not support Linux. He claims this was confirmed by Freeserve's tech support line.

A spokeswoman for the giant ISP confirmed this was the case saying that as a "mass market consumer brand" it "doesn't actively support Linux".

However if Linux users call the freephone number on the email informing them of the "Freeserve Connection Kit" then they will get a different number to connect with, she said. ®
