dial up settings

By jblake ·
are the dial up settings in 98, millenium & 2000 exportable without too much trouble? (like when you do a clean install rather than an upgrade to another OS)

Hi there,
From what I'm aware of there is no way to export those seting via dialup since you'll have to do a reinstall of the software and hardware for the modem.
Copying your settings from going in to control panel --> internet options --> connections --> clicking once on your modem --> properties will give you the settings. Write them down and make sure you get all your proxy server information as well, then put them back in once you've reinstalled your modem drivers.

No,there is no way to export the settings after doing a clean install ,you will have to run the setup program from the ISP to get your settings

The dialup account settings are not exportable, but the email account information is with Outlook and Outlook Express. Simple open your email manager, Outlook or Outlook Express, and go to "Tools\Accounts\Mail" and then highlight the email account you wish to export. Use the "Export" button and choose the path and filename you want to save this file as. You can do this for email account you wish to export, naming them based on how you wish. Save this file(s) to a floppy disk and you can import them back in after you have reloaded your OS. I know this does not answer your question, but it could prove beneficial to you.

I hope this helps
