good for CompuServe classic
Authored by: j-beda on Sep 04, '02 12:12:48PM

This looks like it will be good for compuserve. Currently there are some modem
scripts into which one can embed one's user id and password for Mac OS X, and a script for Mac OS 9 in order to connect via PPP. Now it looks like one can use the same script for Mac OS X 10.2 as well as 9. The scripts are availabe in the Mac help forum on CS.

Of course I have yet to try it out...

The script idea worked fine, but there is an interesting glitch. One of my providers doesn 't use a connection script. But once you have created a Terminal Scripts file the OS seems to require one, EVEN IF YOU HAVE THE TERMINAL SCRIPT OPTION TURNED TO "NONE" in the PPP preferences file.

The work around is to rename the Terminal Scripts file XTerminal Scripts (or something) when you want to use a IP that doens't use terminal scripts. Messy but effective.
