  • Dial-up Networking entry

    [Compiler PBDLL60]
    Is it possible to copy a prefab, ready-to-use Dial-up Networking entry to a user's computer?
    Thanks for any help,

    I think I would get a registry watching program, create a DUN and then watch what changes were made.
    One of the problems with a DUN file is that not everybody will be using the same modem or modem properties etc..

    That could cause some problems. But I think it's doable to create your own DUN file, there may be some samples on the internet.

    And I may be able to dig up a sample if I can find it (It's in C++ tho)..

      Additional question:
      Has some of you, folks, any knowledge of the program "dunnow.exe"?
      It installs a dial-up networking entry, using a 10 Kb file with the
      ".set" extension. Simple enough. Only: how and with what tool are those
      .set-files made?
      Thanks,

        With copying a prepared file to the registry you can
        IMO only adress Win9x users, because WinNT stores
        DUN entries in a special phonebook file.

        In PBDLL I suggest to use the RAS API to accomplish
        that. Go into the files area and search for "RAS"
        There are some examples and also a RAS Include file
        (from Bob Dickinson) for download.

        In other languages (VB, Delphi etc.) I would use an
        OCX for that task. Simplier than calling the RAS API.

            Egbert,

            The .set files are created by Dialup Constructor, from http://www.dialupconstructor.com.

                You're right. It seems that the period at the end of the sentence was added to the link url. The url should be http://www.dialupconstructor.com (no period).

                  Thanks Peter,

                  To morrow morning my first thing to do is suggesting the company I'm working for to purchase it.

                  Erwin,
                  I'll give it a try, but I think it is too complicated for the situation I want it for.
                  I simply want a working DUN-entry (for W95, indeed - not NT) and copy that to the computer of those
                  users that cannot make such an entry 'by hand'.

                    I've downloaded the prog also and checked it out :

                    Pros :
                    - Easy to handle
                    - Tons (!) of features
                    - Low price

                    Contra :
                    - Relativ big download (>600 kb)
                    - no support for non-english languages

                      The only problem is: it does not always work!
                      Therefore I want to create my 'own' routine (see: "Creating a DUN file", started by Scott Turchin, in this forum).
