Using Locations to Control Dial-Up Connections

Each time you use a Dial-Up Networking connection icon, you have the option to specify what location you're dialing from. Settings for each location include the area (or city) code for that location, as well as prefixes required to reach an outside line or to dial long distance, calling card information, and much more. Locations are especially useful for owners of portable PCs; by selecting an entry from a list, you can tell Windows to dial the access number for your ISP's server when you're at home, but to use a dialing prefix, area code, and calling card number when you're on a business trip.
