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.


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.


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.


You can use unattended dial-up in the following situations:

  • You configure Internet Explorer to perform an unattended dial-up connection when it updates subscriptions and channel subscriptions. For information about how to configure unattended dial-up for updating subscriptions and channel subscriptions in Internet Explorer, please see the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

171227 How to Use Subscriptions in Microsoft Internet Explorer

  • You configure Outlook Express to automatically dial when it checks for new messages.
