internet options (in control panel)-> connections-> settings-> advanced check the disconnect if idle- not sure of the duration to set. might be a minute or two for a dedicated crunch box.
just note that i haven't tried this, and haven't used dial up in a while (like years).
i couldn't resist, so i rebooted into win2k, downloaded FAH 3.25beta console, pulled my DSL connection, and configured my back up modem (needed to be configured anyway). also same as above, as well as advanced, select properties-> options and set the redial options there as well. under connections, enter user name and password, and select ok
and under connections, select always dial my defaulte connection, and set as default, and select apply. also under settings add your user name, and password.
one thing the disconnect if inactive duration should be raised if it's a comp that you use besides crunching WU's, but the duration could be set to a 1 min., or 3min. (depending if advanced or properties
) for a dedicated crunch box.
when it pulls up the dialog box, select connect automatically, save password, and select ok.
when in the initial config in the console version, select yes to use IE settings- this made the difference for the above to work (as it's a config w/ IE)
the last step might be the configuration of firewall when FAH attempts to connect for the first time.
