how to have an app call up dial-up networking when needed

On my win98 notebook, an app like Netscape or Eudora used to invoke my main dial up networking entry whenever it needed to access the net. I did not have a script or such. It doesn't  do that anymore, and I am not sure what changed. Now, eg Netscape just reports host not found or whatever, but does not initiate a dial up. I want to re-establish that functionality. I am quite positive that I installled DUN upgrade 1.3 before this change took place.
Thanks all.

Go to Control Panel > Internet Options > Connenctions and look to see if the "Never Dial a connection" is checked. If so check one of the other two options accorcing to what you desire to happen.

From the same window as above, hit the setup tab
and reestablish your connection checking all the settigs.

CrazyOne,

that did it thought my configuration window looked different. It had been set to  "use lan" though....and setting it back to dial up did the trick.

thanks much!

centerv,

not sure what the point  of your post was. There's no "setup" tab under  >connections......on my pc.

what do you mean?

Glad CrazyOne helped you.
To clarify
In that same window, immediately under the Advanced tab is a Setup button
That begins the install wizard, which walks you through all of your internet settings.
Good to know.
Happy surfing. :-)
