Windows 95, 98, ME, NT4, 2000, 2003, XP, Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8/8.1 users do not need any special scripts or software to use either our dialup or broadband access services, you can use your "out of the box" systems to connect.

While we only provide technical support on the Windows platform, we may be able to point you toward software for other operating systems, and will be more than happy to provide you with the configuration information you require to configure whatever software you use to connect to IUL regardless of your chosen computer platform. 

Windows users should note that all versions of Windows prior to Windows XP have been retired by Microsoft.  As such, updates, software downloads and patches may no longer be available to assist users in resolving their problems.  Windows XP users should note that Microsoft has retired support for Windows XP prior to Service Pack 3, XP users should download the free Service Pack 3 update from Microsoft in order to keep their operating system fully supported.  Microsoft will retire all remaining versions of Windows XP as of April 8, 2014.  We will do our best to assist you, but there may be circumstances where the age of your operating system will affect your support experience.
