Thanx to info from David, I would like to ammend section 2 of the FAQ
2.4 How can I keep my dialup connection or periodicaly renew my dialup

For OS/2 boxed
<somebody can suggest something here>

For MacOS machines your best bet would be to check this URL:

For Unix boxen, chances are if your smart enough to set up a *nix machine,
your smart enough to write a script for what you want :-)

Many people solve this problem by setting up automated timer programs
such that their computer dials up every thirty minutes, connects for 5
minutes, then hangs up. The hope is, in this five minute time your
computer will report "Key not found" and get a new key.
