try

"ECHO ATDT5678900 > COMx "

(where x is your modem COM port number)

Open a command prompt and enter the command

RASDIAL /?

You'll see the help to use the dialer command

Can’t get the mobile email signature right?

Not having any luck when trying to create an email signature for mobile devices? Does the formatting keep messing up? Make sure you have great email signatures on all devices by using Exclaimer Cloud - Signatures for Office 365.

Enter:

RasDial <PB_Entry> <user_ID> <password>

for example, let's say You need to dial a phonebook
entry (RAS connection) called "MyISP" and logon to
the server with userid=foo and password=bar, You'll
enter the command

rasdial MyISP foo bar

You could check for dial success/failure results by
examining the "dos" errorlevel code; e.g. if You use
a shell script You could have something like:

@echo off
rasdial MyISP foo bar
rem --- error checks
if errorlevel 2 goto err2
if errorlevel 1 goto err1
rem --- all ok - go on
goto done
:err1
rem --- handle here
echo Error 1 ...
goto quit
:err2
rem --- another ...
echo Error 2 ...
goto quit
:done
rem --- do other actions to be performed
rem --- after a successful connection
ping www.altavista.com
:quit
rem --- common exit

just an example, hope it's clear

Bye

I forgot one thing

to dial a variable number You MUST create a "fake"
phonebook entry, then override the default phone
number using the /PHONE switch in rasdial

in my example above:

rasdial MyISP foo bar /PHONE:123456789

that's all
