Netscape 4.01 auto logoff

I'm using Netscape Navigator 4.01.  My ISP has complained about my habit of connecting all day long, and suggested I logoff after a period of time.

I looked at the preferences and didn't see how this could be done.  I'd like to logoff after 1 hour of inactivity.

I connect to my ISP via Windows 95 - maybe that's where I need to look.

Please help.

Very simple:

1) On your Desktop, right click on "The Internet" icon (yes, the one which get installed as part of WIN95), and select properties
2) Click on the connection Tab, you will see the option:
[Disconnect if idle more] check the box, change the number to 60 (for minutes) click on APPLY
3) Restart your computer and you're all set.

Good Luck!

The Internet icon is no longer on the desktop.  I'm using dial-up networking to connect to the ISP.

No Problem, just head for Microsoft site (www.microsoft.com), download Internet Explorer 3.02 NOT 4.0. Install it and you will have that Icon again.

Then follow my first steps...
This should take care of the problem!

That worked! I was surprised that you needed MSIE to set a Dial Up Netwoking parameter.  But the solution does work for any browser using that modem connection.  Thank you.

Your welcome, a lot of people do not know it neither, but indeed it is MSIE properties that sets it all.
