    I run SBS Premium 2003, when I open explorer with my company web as ther
    default page the company web page appears but insists I make a dial out and
    opens the connection page for my dialup connection. why does the server want
    to dial out.
    I use a Draytek ISDN USB modem and have two Nics installed, using all
    default settings.

  2. Check the Connection settings in IE under Internet Options.

    And why are you using IE on the server anyway?

    thanks for the reply, I'm using explorer to view the companyweb, to check all
    is OK and add ocassional items. Sure I guess I should do it from another
    workstation. Still don't understand why the modem wants to dial out. Using
    another PC all seems OK.
    IE settings has my dial up settings and is set to dial whenever no network
    connection is avalable..

    Can you post the ipconfig/all from the server please?

    I've not been very happy using a USB modem on this server, its just for
    playing with and getting used to SBS. I have a new lan modem on its way. I
    only have ISDN as Ireland has not got round to deploying broadband outside of
    Dublin yet. Appriciate the quick responses.
