View Full Version : WinNT4 Dial Up Networking



14-02-2002, 10:51 PM
When connected to the net, I cannot get the dial up networking monitor to display the system tray icons, neither will it display the desktop icon.
I have tried changing the setting, enabling it, disabling it etc, but no change.
Normally, this would not be a problem, but I need to disconnect, go do something else not PC related, then come back to the last place I was & continue by reconnecting & I dont want to have to go through the control panel to disconnect every time. Microsofts knowlege base is useless to help. If anybody has a clue, can you help please.

I had to do initial setups under Administrator rather than a User account to get things working. Once it was Ok there I could get it to work under normal user account.

Also I start the net monitor in Startup for All Users so it goes into systray.
There seem to be slight differences between ho IE (I use 5.1) and Outlook interact with dialup and you may have to set each one up to make them happy.
