The Connection Manager application was developed to be a small tool that will allow the user to automatically switch Internet connections dependent on the time of day/week. This program runs continuously and can be accessed from the Windows tray. It alters the default internet connection according to the time and day. It is particularly useful for connecting to ISPs which grant freephone numbers for use at weekends and evenings. Once installed (SETUP.EXE) it is recommended that the program is placed in the startup folder so that it is always available. To configure, right click on the icon and select the dial-up-networking connection for peak and off-peak periods. Then set the off-peak times throughout the week.
