Sorry for posting windows related question here but I have looked a lot around but could not find the answer, thought may be someone here can help me and I am sure to get the right answer here. so here is my question...

I am running windows 2000 and I want my dialup connection to dial the ISP whenever my server restarts. I have enabled redial option and it works fine but it does not work when server restart or when I log-off.

Thanks for the help in advance!

Thanks for reply.

I have been through the article you have indicated but it seems to work when I will log-in. What I want is that it should connect to ISP automatically whenever server restarts (without loging-in). It is only useful for me when I am out of office or during night.

Thanks for any help!

Hi K!

It's been a while since I worked with dialup connections, but anyhow, here's a suggestion:

If your connection is configured for automatic dialup whenever there is outbound traffic, I would schedule a connection trigging event, like a simple ping. Create a .bat file with the command "ping <hostname>" (excluding quotes and substituting <hostname> for a live hostname (outside your network). Choose a hostname that actually sends replies to your ping request (it shouldnĆt matter if it does or not with regard to the connection trigger ű since it is an outside address the connection will be opened anyway), but it would be great for diagnostic purposes. Just run the .bat-file from a command window and if you get replies you know the connection is opened and functioning. Then just use the windows scheduler to run the .bat-file at a convenient interval and between office hours (or whatever suits your needs the best).
