This article describes how to set up Mozilla Suite or Firefox to dial automatically on Windows

In Windows 98, open the Control Panel ("Start -> Settings -> Control Panel"). Double-click "Internet Options". Select the "Connections" tab. Set the dial option to "Dial whenever a network connection is not present". Also, select one of the dialup connections and press the "Set Default" button.

In Windows 2000/XP open the Control Panel ("Start -> Settings -> Control Panel"). Double-click "Administrative Tools". Double-click "Services". Look for the following services:

  • Remote Access Connection Manager
  • Remote Access Auto Connection Manager
  • Telephony

After you find each service right-click it and from the menu chose "Properties". On the "General" tab look for the box "Start Up Type" then choose "Automatic".

Set all those services to automatic.

Note: Mozilla Suite/Firefox cannot auto-disconnect. However you can download HangUp or D-Con and use one of those small utilities to hang up (Windows). HangUp D-Con (links don't work :P)
