ISDN Routers and NT Workstations

By werlin ·
I have an NT workstation that causes a ISDN router to dial every few minutes. There is no WINS, DNS,m or DHCP configured. However there is a mapped drive to a server on a different subnet. Is there a way to stop the dialing.

Yes. Delete the mapping and create a batch file, much like a logon batch using the net command and place on the user's desktop. Whenever he/she connects to the remote site, he/she can run the batch and get a mapping to the remote drive. Once the workstation reboots, no map.

Good luck!

calves suggestion is a good one, except that once you run the batch file, the drive mapping will be persistent. Even if you use the /persistent:no switch on your drive mapping (you have to save the file as a .cmd file not a .bat file), the mapping will persist until you reboot. In order to solve this, you'd have to have another command or batch file that they'd run after they were finished using the mapped drive with a "net use ... /delete" command. Hope this helps!

Not knowing anything about your router or network I can point you in the following direction:

If the router has an Operating System (CISCO IOS) it may be possible to adjust it to dial for protocol specific reasons. I have set up Linux as such a router and was able to control the types of requests that were ignored. This would take some thought and planning on your part since it sounds as if you have a WAN.
