Hi Charles,

I just took some advice and got InJoy, which is a replacement for IBM's dialer.
It has the capability to sit idle and wait for a TCP/IP request and then dial.
You can then set an idle or timeout function to let it stay connected long
enough to post results and get the next set of keys, and then it will
disconnect.

I got it from BMT Micro (www.wilmington.net/bmtmicro/). I got the extended
registration, which is $35.00, but there is a less expensive basic
registration as well.

I am running an AMD 5x86/133 and deschal4, also under OS/2. Now the process is
automated, and running in the background.

TTYL,
