If errorlevel rasdial

if errorlevel rasdial

PING -n 1 sprers.eu|find "Reply from " >NUL IF NOT ERRORLEVEL 1 goto:SUCCESS @echo off rasdial ConnectionName /DISCONNECT rasdial ConnectionName. So I was wondering if anyone here could help me advance a script I have put together through googling. Sometimes like with all towers the. sprers.eu › questions › how-execute-a-command-in-batch-file-if-.

If errorlevel rasdial - opinion

Eventually got it all to work, late update but since this has been solved and I forgot to select a best answer and it's been done for me, I just wanted to mention it



How did you get this to work? Thanks.


I apologize for the late response, I never got around this, but finally here is how I did it incase you're still wondering

Basically, I made a batch file with this layout:

@echo off
:check
timeout 2 >nul
rasdial "VPN Adapter name here" >nul
if %errorlevel% == 0 goto check
) ELSE )
goto vpnoffline
)
:vpnoffline
ipconfig /release
timeout 4 >nul
Any other additional commands can be placed here

Basically that's all there is to it, boot up the vpn, start that batch file up and the rasdial command will check the vpn adapter that you inputted into it if it's running, and if it is, it will constantly execute the command, and if it does go offline, then it will go to the vpnoffline part of the program, do the ipconfig /release command to set the internet connection to limited, and then any additional things can be added, like a batch file to run that tells me that the vpn is offline, or even a message box, a batch file that has a command to turn on the internet connection again with ipconfig /renew would be ideal, for example i would have a batch file that can look like this:

Your VPN has gone offline so your internet connection is disabled
Would you like to turn on your internet connection? [y/n]

then I would input y to do the ipconfig /renew command to bring back the internet connection on the computer, and then I could turn on the vpn again if I want to

That's really all there is to it =D I apologize for taking so long to get around to it, but there you have it!

I am working on winxp, trying to write a batchfile for 9x,nt,2k,and
xp. I want to be able to check for a connection to the inter

I have found 2 different examples but neither of them seem to work. It
seems that regaurdless if the computer is connected to the internet or
not it always comes back and not connected. The error level is always
1.

Here is one of the examples

@ECHO OFF
ECHO Checking connection, please wait
PING Ś FIND "Reply from " > NUL
IF NOT ERRORLEVEL 1 ECHO You have an active connection to the internet
IF ERRORLEVEL 1 ECHO You have NO active connection to the internet

What needs to be changed so that this will correctly report if the
connection can be established?

Thanks for you help with this.

Try this, copy and paste it, as your version had an invalid pipe character

User Guides Intenet Connectivity Check and Reconnection via Batch File.

Hi

Here is a Batch(.bat) file which will automatically check for network/internet connectivity and if not found will automatically reconnect. This is will come in very handy for people who's internet link keeps dropping and are having frequent disconnections. This is a customized code which I use(pppoe on PC). Go to the source (see ref.) for original code and customize as per your requirement.

I'm not checking for DNS errors cuz It was resulting in error, also i dont usually face dns issues.

Replace ConnectionName with the name of your Broadband Dialer
USERNAME with username and
PASSWORD with password.

Note:This is [email protected] people who dial (pppoe) on the PC and Reconnection part will only for such people. Will not work if you dial(pppoe) on modem or router.

For people with router, put your router on always on mode so whenever the line drops it will automatically reconnect. And for people which do PPPoE on modem, I think it's about time you put it on bridged mode.

A)Copy this code.
B)Open notepad and paste.
C)Customize.
D)Save as sprers.eu or sprers.eu and Schedule
E)Enjoy non-stop torrent downloading :hap2:

Code:


You can Schedule this to run every 15min - 30mins to check for connectivity.
Feel free to pop a question.

For people using router, if this doesn't help you then try using AHK(Auto Hot Key) or Imacro's for firefox for automation. Can draw inspiration from here sprers.eu

Njoy.

 

FIND /I "Reply from " >NUL
> IF NOT ERRORLEVEL 1 GOTO FAIL

(snip)

Yes. On the side of the actual subject of the syntax, if I
understand correctly that one tells us about having the address
available on the connection's name server. If one wishes to check if
the site is reachable, then one can start with the IP number, which
in that particular case is I guess. But that comment of
mine is actually already slightly outside the script aspect of the
task.

All the best, Timo

Tech Note: Automatic SLIP or PPP and HTTP restart under Windows NT

I run a web server under Windows NT over a SLIP connection and my phone line occasionally drops during the day. I have worked out a way to get my server to restart unattended. This was harder than I thought! I ran across several stumbling blocks:
  • The Remote Access service will redial automatically but, if you are using SLIP, won't login without waiting for me to press a Done button. Answer: use the RASDIAL command line program.
  • The RASDIAL program doesn't redial when the line drops. Answer: write a batch file which checks the connection every so often and redials if it is down.
  • Couldn't find a way to check the connection from a batch file, e.g. Ping hangs up if RAS is up but the connection is down. Answer: write a simple program called RASUP which does this.
  • Even if the connection is re-established, the EMWACS HTTPS server doesn't start responding again. This causes a problem even if you are using the auto-redial feature of PPP under RAS. Answer: use the net command to stop and restart the service.

Here's how it works. I leave this batch file running in a command prompt window. Every 60 seconds it checks to see if my RAS connection is active. If there is no connection, it redials and then restarts the HTTP server.

sprers.eu
:top rasup if errorlevel 1 goto done rasdial TIAC net stop "Http server" sleep 5 net start "Http server" :done sleep 60 goto top
Notes:
  • TIAC is the name of my login script.
  • I found the sleep program with the posix utilities in the NT resource kit (available from Microsoft's FTP site).
  • I had to insert a short pause between stopping and starting the HTTP service

Here's the source to the rasup program I wrote. I'm a rusty coder, don't be harsh! The RAS.H include file comes with the Win32 SDK from Microsoft.

/* rasup.c Command line utility to see if any Remote Access Service connections are active. Exit status=1 if any are active, otherwise 0. */ #include <windows.h> #include <stdio.h> #include <ras.h> VOID main() { RASCONN rasconnbuf; DWORD cb = sizeof(RASCONN); DWORD ret; DWORD numConn; /* Required to provide buffer size */ sprers.eu = sizeof(rasconnbuf); /* Retrieve info about first active connection (I only have one - change this if you have more) */ ret = RasEnumConnections(&rasconnbuf,&cb, &numConn); if ((numConn == 0) if errorlevel rasdial
