I have tried a couple of times to get a setup script. I have just installed win95 again, and I need to set up some of the ip addresses, can anyone describe the options I need to configure. Phone calls to demon are getting expensive.

kinda, I can set that up to dial the number and run the login script, but it just sits there, and eventually times out. I have had to set up the TCP/IP Network Option, to set my IP address, even though demon should allocate one, I have to set up the WINS server and a couple other things. But I can't remember which ones. I am no particular hurry to phone Demon cuz they take about half an hour to check all the options.

OK, 1st.
Will you tell me the vitals your system, ie; cpu make and model,
How much ram , pci, type of mouse, video adapter, network, what
kind of Network Adapter, significant software and anything you can think of.
There are many variables and we could spend weeks trying to solve
something while I don't know what we're working with. :)
And are you using MSN.
-----------
In you network configuration, what is there, all you need, if you not using MSN is "Dial-up Adaptor" and 'TCP/IP".
Check the properties and post what is in every tab.
--------------------
For all other settings you must contact your ISP, "Internet
Service Provider". Such as their Static IP numbers as shown
below. Go to Control Panel, Double Click "Network",
Highlight "TCP/IP", click on the "Properties Button" and the
screen shown below will appear. Check you DNS configuration.

You need a batch based installation. Use netsetup.exe's Make Script  to create a basic or default script. Or using BATCH.EXE to create setup scripts.

You may find them at win95's cdrom:

\ADMIN\RESKIT\APPTOOLS\BATCH
\ADMIN\APPTOOLS\NETSETUP

The script files is msbatch.inf, copy it to your windows 95's setup directory.

For more info, just search "msbatch" at M$ site.
