    dial up disconnect (XP SP1)

    I have just installed. How do I get a dial up connection to auto disconnect when I close all instances of IE(6.0) It has always been set that way on my old Win908 machine but I cant find the setting in XP. My kids are that used to it that they keep l;eaving it connected....

    Should help.

    310410: HOW TO: Configure and Use Dial-Up Connections in Windows XP

    This is from Kelly's XP Site:

    Auto Disconnect

    Start/Run/Regedit

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESystemCurrentControlSetServicesL anmanServerParameters. In the right pane, find Autodisconnect and change the time accordingly.

    Or...

    Start/Run/net config server /autodisconnect:30 (30 being an example). The valid value range is -1 to 65535 minutes at the command line. To disable Auto-Disconnect set it to -1. Setting Autodisconnect to 0 does not turn it off and results in very fast disconnects, within a few seconds of idle time. (However, the RAS Autodisconnect parameter is turned off if you set it to a value of 0.)
