Hang-up IC Host Dial-up MODEM
from an ICS Client
Last updated: 3/13/02
Q. How can one hang-up a dial-up MODEM
on a Windows 9x/Me ICS host computer from an ICS client computer?
A. It can't be done with ICS
according to Microsoft (Dial-Up Connection in ICS Does Not Prompt to Disconnect
on Client (Q237806) at http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q237806&SD=MSKB&),
and that behavior is by design. Besides the person using the host or
another client might not like it. However... Chris Giles sent me an
E-Mail on this FAQ and stated:
"It can easily and elegantly be done by installing the
Remote Disconnection Utility, freeware from http://www.twiga.ltd.uk.
Works like a charm."
