Tried easy bid once, it took me to a Dos prompt style window that required me to dial into something or other. It was reminiscent of my IBM 386 era technology. I quit after trying to “dial in”.

I suspect you needed to check the box that said your computer was "always connected to the internet" or something very similar on the SETUP screen. Easybid has been around since the 386/486 and the dial up days of yore. Once you do that you won't get the prompt.

Second what Denny said. Check the connected to the internet box. It is an ancient UI, but the functionality and usability is light years ahead of NavBlue.

Heck, even iCrew gives NavBlue a run for its money WRT functionality and usability. So easy to book jumpseats, as long as you can differentiate a squirrel from a pencil!
