pc dials out by itself!

I have 2 pcs networked 98+XP. WWW is by gateway. Why does the server pc dial out automatically as soon as the gateway user pc is logged on?

One thought: In IE Tools>Internet Options>Connections tab, is Dial Whenever a Network connection is not present enabled?

Normal mode is Always dial default connection.
