Which program initiates dial on demand?
Posted on 2002-03-15
I have my windows 98 SE configured to use the dial on demand feature, meaning that when a program attempts to do something involving a net connection and one does not exist, the OS will automatically place the program on hold, establish a net connection by dialing up my ISP, then allow to the program to continue as if the system had been online in the first place.
Quite frequently, the dial on demand feature is activated by some non user driven event--it connects to the net without me having asked my email program to check mail or my browser to load a page. I don't even have to be at the keyboard.
I would like to track down which process is responsible for initiating each the dial on demand each time it happens (i.e. which process tried to open a socket that triggered the DOD, etc). Is there a piece of software or technique that will allow me to do so?
