Using TravelConnect Explorer & Explorer4Flights with AOL
AOL Users may find that they have problems connections to our system using our custom browsers,TravelConnect Explorer or Explorer4Flights.
This is due to a peculiarity of AOL that only allows the user to access the internet when logged into AOL first. Because our system requires live internet access to function, an AOL user must connect to their AOL account first.
How do I know if I'm having problems due to my AOL?
After you have installed your TravelConnect Explorer or Explorer4Flights, you should have our icon on your Windows Desktop. If, when you click on the icon, you see the following message (Fig. 1), then your AOL is not connected yet.
First, in order to use TravelConnect you must connect to your AOL service.
You must follow whatever route you normally take to connect to AOL. Typically, this involves clicking on the AOL icon on your desktop, and entering your AOL username and password.
When your AOL screen has loaded completely, you may Minimize your AOL window by clicking on the Minimize button in the top-right of the AOL screen (Fig. 2).
Now you have a current broadband connection, you can double-click on the Connections Explorer or Explorer 4 Flights icon on your desktop. This time, when the program runs, you should see the following (Fig. 3).
At this stage enter your password or register for a password.
AOL users may be
interested to know that it is possible to have your AOL Broadband connection permanently
on, without the use of the AOL software, and without any increase to your AOL
bill. For detailed instructions on how to acheive this please click here. Please
note this should not be attempted by Computer or Internet novices.
