(Answer) (Category) distributed.net Faq-O-Matic : (Category) the Client software : (Answer) The client tries to trigger auto-dial, but fails because my dialup needs a password
If the client is auto-dialing itself (or triggering your Operating System to automatically dial) too frequently, then that is because it does not have enough work to process during the time that you are offline. So you need to configure the client to keep enough workunits ready so that it will not run out. See the link below for information about how to configure your work thresholds.
Additionally, since your dialup requires a password, it is silly to allow the client to ever trigger auto-dial by itself. Therefore, you should configure the client to use the "Lurk-Only" mode, that is described in the link below.
