Chapter 18. Using Dial-Up Networking > Understanding Scripts

Understanding Scripts

You can use a script to automate your login to any host (except another Windows NT machine, which does not require any script). A script provides the host computer with all the information you normally have to type during the connection process. Most of the time (as in Internet connections), the script is run after you dial in and connect to the host computer. This section provides an overview as to some of the capabilities of dial-up networking scripts.

Windows provides a script file named SWITCH.INF for you to use when you want to configure a script. It is a text file that is really multiple scripts all contained in one file, and there are simple instructions for customizing the script you need. To access it, open it from the \SYSTEM21\RAS subfolder under the folder that holds your Windows NT software.
