SYMPTOMS

If you configure an unattended dial-up connection in Internet Explorer or Outlook Express, you may receive the following message when the modem attempts to connect:

You are currently using NetWare servers which will be inaccessible if you establish this connection.

Click OK to continue dialing. Click Cancel if you do not want to dial at this time.

The unattended dial-up connection does not continue until you click OK.

CAUSE

This behavior can occur if the Microsoft Client for NetWare Networks is installed on your computer, and the Internetwork Packet Exchange/Sequenced Packet Exchange (IPX/SPX)-compatible protocol is bound to the Dial-Up Adapter.

RESOLUTION

To work around this behavior, follow these steps:

  1. Click Start, point to Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Dial-Up Networking.
  2. Right-click the connection you are using for the unattended dial-up, and then click Properties.
  3. Click Server Type, and then click the IPX/SPX Compatible check box to clear it.
  4. Click OK, and then click OK again.
