So, I have this friend who has a home network where he has his winXP
box set to share the dialup connection with a win98 box.
1) If he does "anything" on the win98 box it causes the dialup
connection on the XP box to activate(dial out). I think maybe it has
something to do with the fact that the win98 box is setup to do dhcp
and for whatever reason does not appear in the hosts file on the XP
box and consequently activates the dialup connection to do DNS lookup
or something. But if anyone else has some ideas I'd be very
2) On the XP box, he uses Netscape and Norton Anti-virus. Neither one
can be made to cause the dialup connection to activate automatically.
Although IE has no problem. Is there some way to make the dialp
connection the default route?
If anybody can point me in towards some clues I appreciate it very
