Dialup Connection

10 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi,

Can anyone advise how I can automate establishing a dialup connection.

I want a client computer, after a reboot, to dialup Internet service provider & connect with VNC server software, to my VNC (listening) daemon.

Set Internet Explorer options to autodial, and use inetget on a trivial page with the cache refresh option.


Who else would I be?

Or just use RNAHelp

a simple program to connect/disconnect dialup connections.

If you're using Windows XP you can use the command "Rasdial.exe"

USAGE:
    rasdial entryname [username [password|*]] [/DOMAIN:domain]
        [/PHONE:phonenumber] [/CALLBACK:callbacknumber]
        [/PHONEBOOK:phonebookfile] [/PREFIXSUFFIX]

    rasdial [entryname] /DISCONNECT

    rasdial

We have enough youth. How about a fountain of SMART?

Thanks, I tried it.

It only worked on Windows 98SE but not on Windows XP PRO SP2.

List of other DUN programs I found

GUI

1st Dialer - All Microsoft OS's - 322KB - Freeware - http://www.neurobridge.com

Freealer - All Microsoft OS's - 487KB - GPL - http://www.iticintl.com.ru ??

Commandline

Rasdial - All Microsoft OS's - 137KB - Freeware - http://w1.321.telia.com/~u32102551/index.html

rcl - Microsoft 9x - 32KB - Freeware - http://www.softnik.org

Thank you for your reply.

I thought of that one, and so far it's possibly the only one that will work across various operating systems, but it seems like a "percussive" solution i.e. smacking with a big hammer.

Someone must have a "scripting/programing" solution to access a feature built into the operating system.

There are ways to do it, but most of them require c++ code to pull off. Usually, your best option would be to have an external program like the ones you have been looking for. I would recommend to keep searching.

Using radial+rnahelp is not an option so (or any other of the programs you found)?
