i'm sure there was a post in here but after looking through all 7 pages couldnt find it....

when the client machine is on, my modem on the host machine starts dialling
i figured its msn msger' so i asid cancel sign in and disconnected the modem
minute later i go into start menu.... starts dialling again

basically i dont want it autodialling
how can i stop this?
at the same time i dont want to stop control from the client machine in the dialup account as i want it to have full control over it

cheers

Thanks for the reply, ive managed to solve it.

It was in network connections>dialup account>properties>advanced>
something like establish a connectin when a network computer needs it or something

overlooked it many times
so glad though!

btw.. it wasnt just mail. i could close it and it would still happen.
scary thought that whe nothings open, it >needs< the internet
ms spyware??? :p

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
