Shutting down internet connection from Client computer ?
GbF Oct-20-01 09:02 PM
...or even the host computer. Does anyone know of a way to do this ?
It would save me trudging upstairs all the time to shut down the modem.
Thanks.

What I mean to say is shut down the host from the client or preferably shut off the internet connection which they both share but the client doesn't appear to have control of.

What are using to share the connection and what kind of connection is it? What version of Windows are you running? Larry

Hi Larry,
The O.S. is Win98se and the connection is via a crossover cable using Ethernet Cards. I'm using the standard Microsoft Win98 Network Setup with the TCP/IP protocol.

See mskb 230108, ICS Does Not Disconnect When You Are Finished Using the Internet, at http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q230/1/08.ASP?LN=EN-US&SD=gn&FR=0&qry=ics%20dial-up&rnk=4&src=DHCS_MSPSS_gn_SRCH&SPR=W98 and mskb 237806, Dial-Up Connection in ICS Does Not Prompt to Disconnect on Client, at http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q237/8/06.ASP?LN=EN-US&SD=gn&FR=0&qry=ics%20dial-up&rnk=14&src=DHCS_MSPSS_gn_SRCH&SPR=W98. If you have an external MODEM you may want to consider a Barricade (http://duxcw.com/digest/Reviews/Network/smc/smc7004br/smc7004br.htm) or SyGate (http://duxcw.com/digest/Reviews/Network/sygate/sygate.htm) for a better software solution.

Thanks for your help Larry, having read through the links you provided it seems that 'sygate' might be the best solution, so I'll give that a trial and see if it's the answer.
Thanks again.
Gordon
