One way to prevent dropped network connections
Authored by: xianman on Dec 13, '06 03:48:29PM

I would really like to try this script, but I get an error saying 'The variable deactivate is not defined.'. My Script editor is seeing 'deactivate' in the 3rd line as a variable and not a function, as indicated by its green color. Unfortunately I am not saavy enough to know how to fix this problem. Any ideas?

That's weird. Works for me. Try this: http://tinyurl.com/yfrsqn

Don't forget to change the IP address, and just try commenting out the deactivate line if it doesn't work for you.

Thanks, that works to comment that line out. Not sure why it works for you and not for me though.

Frankly, it *did* work for me (it was in the same place from which I've used it) but it doesn't work now. Something must have changed. Very strange. Maybe applescript applications can no longer understand the deactivate command, or maybe I had something installed that made it understand. I don't know. In any case, it's not entirely necessary. It was helpful when I launched the app from another script, though.

Glad it's working for you now.
