Can anyone provide an automatic script that I can use to connect to CompuServe using PPP?  I can connect via PPP, but I must type in ID and password each time.  The scripts I have created won't work.

Hi

I have emailed you an amended CIS script.
If it works you could delete this question and save your points for asking other questions if you want to.

Hi Again

I am glad the script worked.
I will post the contents of the script here tomorrow as I don't have it to hand at the moment. This will make the answer available for anyone else to view.
