Do not use Windows Internet utilities.
Just type Ctrl+B in TR.
or something else to connect your ISP, input login and password, then
Then enter DXCluster. After such long procedure type Ctrl+B again.
This works OK here.
Question to Tree:
If you do this often, maybe simple script will help? Such feature will
be great especially for hams with bad phone lines so they have to
redial ISP very often.
Some of ISPs do not allow telnet to run. Or directly switch on PPP
or SLIP after succesfully entered password...
We can use W95 built-in telnet application or use Netscape/IE. We
can use DXMon or DXTelnet, but there is no possibility to transfer
DX info to TR-LOG.
