Avoid using Dial up connection

  swapper 17:50 03 Feb 2006

I have Apache, MySQL, php etc running on my PC for testing only.
As far as I can see, I have it installed correctly now, thanks to a lot of support from th PCA Forum.

A minor little thing I would like to resolve if possible.

I get to localhost/whatever, by opening IE6 and taking the option to work offline, and then typing in the address, no problem, but every time I change from one page to another, I am given the option to work off line or connect,
and I take the connect option, even though I am working offline.

How can I avoid keep getting this option window?

go to 'File' and select 'work offline'

Thanks FE, I did as you suggested but still got the same result, the option to connect or work offline each time I changed pages.
Its not the end of the world, I've still got the server working off line, its just a little irritating, that all?

Swapper - are you using DSL via an external modem or a router? Go into the Connections tab of Internet Options and select "Never dial a connection". Don't do this if you have a PCI DSL modem or a dial-up modem.

ade.h, thank you for responding, I have a BT voyager 105 ADSL
When I saw your response, I sighed with relief:-)
However, I tried as you suggested but it made no difference.
I tried Going to File - Work off line, but no difference.

I installed the Apache package from DevShed and it works just fine except for this very annoying habit of wanting to connect each time I change to a different page.

I am just learning about this so it is probable me somewhere.
