Dial-Up Networking

*Commands deprecated - See note below



Dial-Up Networking connects the computer to another computer or to the Internet using a modem.


Dial-Up networking must be set up and configured in Windows in order to use this function. Use the Create a Dial-Up Connection or Change Dial-Up Settings options in Windows to do this. 




Script Editor > Expand Network Category > Dial-Up Networking



Phone Book Entries

The Dial-Up Networking option displays a list of all the phone book entries created in Windows. If none are displayed, a phone book entry will first need to be created in Windows. Choose the entry to dial and connect.


User Name

Enter the user name for the account selected.



Enter the password for the account selected.


Note: When selecting a phone book entry, the User Name will most likely be displayed without requiring the name to be entered. Depending on the security of the system, the password may also be inserted. The actual password is not shown. A series of asterisks is displayed in its place.






Choosing this option simply instructs the macro to hang up or terminate a Dial-Up Connection if one is currently active. There is not an edit window associated with this command. Double click on the Hangup command to insert it directly into the script.






*Deprecated Commands

Some macro commands have been designated as deprecated. These commands may be infrequently used, use out of date terminology, or are no longer supported by newer versions of Windows. In some cases deprecated macro commands have been replaced by new ones.


Deprecated commands are still supported in existing macros for backward compatibility. However, they may be removed from Macro Express in the future. Where possible we recommend that you avoid the use of deprecated macro commands.


By default deprecated commands are not displayed or accessible from the list of commands in the Macro Express Editor. To allow adding deprecated commands to a macro enable the Show deprecated commands option found in Options, Preferences, General - Misc tab.
