    A while back I set up my USB dsl modem to dial as soon as the Mac turned on. I now have my ibook on the network and would like to have the powermac start up internet sharing each time it turned on. Is there simply and option for this? Or could somebody write me another script?


    This is the script to turn my internet on (USB ADSL):

    tell application "Internet Connect"
    activate
    connect
    quit
    end tell

    Any ideas?

    i thought sharing was always on as long as you don't disconnect from the network.

    Everytime I restart my mac, the internet sharing turns off.

    you should post this at the Apple discussion boards or MacScripter.net for a much faster response. i just tried a few things really quick but couldnt make it happen. perhaps you could do it with GUI scripting? sorry, im sure someone over at the Apple boards could do it really quick. good luck.
