    Laptop as ICS client _and_ self-server?

    A slight wrinkle. Win98 network w. switching hub. One PC is a laptop. Sometimes this PC is on the net via an Ethernet card, sometimes it roams. On the net, it uses ICS to dial-up an Internet connection (it is an ICS client). Off the homenet, it uses a modem card to dial the same connection. Once -- once! -- during my configuration odyssey this was automatic: on the net, the server modem dialed; off the net, the card modem dialed. Now, off the net, I get "Can't access the network". My workaround is to run the connectoid, and then run my browser and e-mail reader. Any way I can reclaim my lost automation?

    That's all for now. Sorry for 3 posts all at once. Kirby.

    Maybe you could try this:
    In IE under tools/internet options/connections you can have IE dial whenever no network is present. Maybe you have selected to "never dial".
    Hope this works,

    Concise and correct. My oops. Thanks Eddy!

    I might add for those following this thread, it is worthwhile to check "Perform system security check" as well. This makes sure file sharing is not enabled on the TCP/IP Dial-up connection.
