I use a computer to serve an internet connection to a variety of other computers, and I want to be able to get the computers on the LAN to be able to connect and disconnect the internet connection.

Is there any way to disconnect the connection via a batch file. I can get it to connect by calling a shortcut to the connection, but once connected, caling the shortcut again does nothing.

Have you got a taskbar icon for the connection (on the computer which is using it)? If so, you ought to be able to right-click it, and disconnect. Otherwise, on the computer which "owns" the modem, the connection will have to be set to "disconnect after ...".

remote dissconection ulitilty springs to mind. www.paracticallynetworked.com had a link for it.

Yes, I have a taskbar icon on the computer which is the server, however this computer has no monitor, keyboard or mouse. I wish to be able to control it via the network. Currently I use RAdmin (remote desktop utility) and this is fine for me, but not for the other users of the network. I need something far simpler to use...

I tried making a program with delphi to do it, that worked for about two weeks, and now will not... I am now using a remote keystroke simulator for the connect, but the disconnect will not work...
