O.K. it works! Great, but.....
NetKid Mar-05-02 02:43 PM
OK, I have my home network configured and working with ICS.
Thanks for the info. It was simple. However, since I am using
a modem on my main phone line, how do I get the modem to
hang up from the remote computer. My only option I could see
was to have it shut down after 5 min. of inactivity.
Any suggestions?(besides the obvious i.e. second phone line,
DSL connection, Etc.)
Also, I would like to know a little more about the WOL feature.
I have read quite a bit of what has been posted, and would like to see my computer, I have setup as a server, come to life whenever it see's that another computer on the network shows LAN activity(basically when a remote computers OS boots).
Thanks, NetKid

So would I (that was directed towards readers of this forum I know are tinkering with it, and others). All I know on the subject has already been posted in this forum. Larry

Thanks for the help. I always seem to come up the some off the wall items. However, I'm lucky, I have talked to a few people that answered a lot of my questions. I was told that some ISP software has a setting, and there might be some software out there, that when the last web-browser is closed on any machine the host commands the modem to shut down. Can anyone verify this? I haven't found that yet, but I am looking.
Right now the best I can do is the "Windows" setting of "Shut down modem idle for (set min.)".
Thanks, NetKid

Chris Giles sent me an E-Mail on the FAQ referenced in my last post with information a program which will allow a client to hangup a dial-up connection on an ICS host...

'It can easily and elegantly be done by installing the Remote Disconnection Utility, freeware from http://www.twiga.ltd.uk. Works like a charm.'

I got to download the Twiga software over the weekend. It's a dream! I will have to configure it correctly to give a Pop-up screen at the end of an ICS session, But It sure is a big help!
Thanks for the help!
Now, if anyone can help with the remote computer startup? I tried a WOL NIC But it didn't give the desired results. Unless I had the "Logon" script on the client computers send a packett to the server. That is an option, but not what I had in mind.
Thanks, NetKid
