Can anybody give me a sample script for connecting to X25 through Dial Up Networking or point out what needs to be included (I realise X25 will lokk for a Username & Password) but need to know where to put them in a script.

Use something as simple as MS Kermit (ftp://KERMIT.COLUMBIA.EDU)
and one of its scripts to make the modem "dial" the X.25 access-number,
wait for the 'CONNECT' message, and then wait for the appropriate "prompts", and to supply the responses to the prompts.

Thanks for the answer Otta, but I'm looking for a bit more info than just the file, such as a walkthrough of a sample script.

The KERMIT script could be as simple as:

output 'ATDTnnn-nnnn'
input 30 'CONNECT'
input 10 'Login:'
output 'Penfold'
input 5 'Password:'
output 'rumpelstiltskin'

The numbers, e.g., '30', tell KERMIT to wait for '30' seconds
for the string, e.g., 'CONNECT'.

Otta,
As I said in the Question, I have to use DUN. What is this MSKermit ?
I will give your points for your input so far, but need more information. The type of script I was given is like this
send "\(Hayes)\n"
read 5 "OK"
send "atdt\(Phone)\n"
read 30 "CONNECT"
read 5 "\n"
read 5 "\n"
send "NUI \(X_USER_ID)\n"
read 5 "word"
send "\(X_USER_PASSWORD)\n"
read 5 "tive"
wait 1
send "\016set?2:0,3:0,4:1,12:0,13:0,6:0,1:0\n"
wait 1
send "\(X_ADDRESS)\n"
wait 1

but this scripts seems to stop just after it gets through the X.25 handshake. Any Ideas why ?

> What is this MSKermit ?

According to: http://www.columbia.edu/kermit/

Kermit software offers a consistent approach to file transfer,
terminal emulation, script programming, and character-set
conversion on hundreds of different hardware and operating-system
platforms, using diverse communication methods.
----------

Since X.25 requires an ASCII terminal, or "terminal-emulation" thereof, KERMIT is the answer.
---------------

The following seems to be a "skeleton" of a script,
needing customization in several places.

> send "\(Hayes)\n"

I think that '(Hayes)' should be replaced by 'AT&F' or by 'AT&F1',
depending on your modem (Rockwell-based or US Robotics).

> read 5 "OK"
> send "atdt\(Phone)\n"

I think that '(Phone)' should be replaced by a 7-digit telephone-number -- the local X.25 dial-up number.

> read 30 "CONNECT"
> read 5 "\n"
> read 5 "\n"
> send "NUI \(X_USER_ID)\n"

The 'NUI' ("Network User ID") command is the X.25-equivalent
of using a credit-card to charge a call.
Replace '(X_USER_ID)' by the value of your NUI.

> read 5 "assword"
> send "\(X_USER_PASSWORD)\n"

Each NUI has an associated "password".

> read 5 "tive"
> wait 1
> send "\016set?2:0,3:0,4:1,12:0,13:0,6:0,1:0\n"

Set various X.25 parameters to some values.

> wait 1
> send "\(X_ADDRESS)\n"

Open an X.25 connection to the host at '(X_ADDRESS)'.

> wait 1



> but this scripts seems to stop just after it gets

The script runs out of things to do "automatically".

At this point, your ASCII terminal is "connected", via X.25,
to the remote host, and you need to do whatever that host
wants you to do, i.e., login.
