Noob Trying To Automate Dialup Connection

6 posts in this topic

New to the forums,

This is my first time scripting and I understand a bit how this works however I have been assigned the task at work to automate the dialup connection wizard for our wininstall unattended builds. I can get to the main screen, but after that I'm lost.

Run("Control netconnections")

However, I need to open the "New Connection" wizard. There is no control ID for the icon so I cannot do a control click nor can I do the mouseclick function because the window opens up differently for different machines.

Any thoughts?

A newb.

Could you use the command line command rasdial ?

Yea, Rasdial would be the way to go.

I have read that is the way to go, did some research on it but I'm not clear how I would add that to the command line in script form. There is this syntax:

rasdial connectionname [username [password | *]] [/domain:domain] [/phone:phonenumber] [/callback:callbacknumber] [/phonebook:phonebookpath] [/prefixsuffix]

The rasdial command disconnects a network connection by using the following syntax:

rasdial [connectionname] /disconnect

How would I include this into my script for automating it?

Also, we are trying to setup a connection for many laptops without a name, password, and ISP, just a phone number.

By the way, thanks for responses!

Try

run("rasdial test /phone:123456789")

Remember to change 123456789 for your phone no.

at work to automate the dialup connection wizard for our wininstall unattended builds.

I can get to the main screen, but after that I'm lost.

Run("Control netconnections")

this runs the modem wizard :

Run("rundll32 rnaui.dll,RnaWizard")
