Linuxhelp _ Programming in Linux _ Dialup Question

Posted by: VJD Nov 3 2004, 08:48 AM

Hi Peeps,

Sorry if I am posting this request into the wrong topic but I really need your expert help.

I work for a exhibition company who have several (50+) PAYG (Pay As You Go) Dialup accounts.

Because they are all PAYG accounts they need to be dialled into every 60 days otherwise they all get suspended and have to call the helpline and wait for 20mins for them to get re-activated.

Is there a program for Linux or Windows or a script that I can make or use to dial up the internet using ISDN (Eicon PCI Card - Can get the drivers for linux) and ping a server then disconnect and dial the next one on the list?

Any help is a great help.

Thanks

VJ

You need to have a script that can do the job for you.
And after that you can use crontab to run that script once in 60days.

The script will be a simple bash script..and about how to use crontab..check out..
