Dialup Networking

By Webwoef ·
In our shops we use win xp pro on the desktop. The connection made to the server is made via router and isdn dialup. The email checks every 30 minutes. And the people consult the server via browser. They can only surf on intranet.
In the formerconfigurations (win nt), the line was closed after a minute of inactivity.

Now with XP the line is constantly opened/reopened and our telecombill is extremely high.

Are there registry keys or other settings to keep the bill a little lower ?thx.

Have you disabled Windows Messenger? I know that it continuously checks to see if you have a connection to the Internet and have a Passport set up. (Annoying!)

If that doesn't help, get a software packet sniffer and try to figure out what packets the PC is sending that it shouldn't.

Try using a firewall on the pc as this would stop activity that you dont want to go out such as MS Messenger. It would give details of what is trying to use the connection. Also use ad-aware & Spybot S&amp as it may be spyware that has loaded itself that is using the connection.
