working database that is being opened up, that contains different networking=
 settings.   The script appears to go through the list in the database=20=
until it finds the active setting, and attempts to modify it to "Use DHCP" -=
 - is that the correct description of what's going on?<BR>
<BR>
If this script is designed to run on OS X - - - can anyone shed light on how=
 different the OS 9 version would be?<BR>
<BR>
Thanks again for your help - - - this is indeed one of the best Listserve's=20=
I've been on.   Folks here are very helpful and knowledgeable.<BR>

What version of AppleScript/Mac OS are you using? It is possible that this<B=
R>
configuration didn't work properly in earlier versions...<BR>
<BR>
The reason I say that is that since I was the original poster of the<BR>
AppleScript (to which Sarah added her valuable additions), and it worked for=
<BR>
me on an iMac running OS 10.1...<BR>

Let us know,<BR>

Sarah - - - thanks so much for this script.=C2=A0=C2=A0 I've hit one stumbli=
ng block<BR>
that's keeping it from running, and no one seems to know how to fix it - - -=
<BR>
was wondering if someone on this list might:<BR>
<BR>
The problem is with this line:<BR>
<BR>
if (class of configuration i of config) is (TCPIP v4 configuration)<BR>
<BR>
appleScript is complaining of a type mismatch problem.=C2=A0=C2=A0 I thought=
 perhaps<BR>
putting<BR>
<BR>
if (class of configuration i of config) as string is (TCPIP v4<BR>
configuration)<BR>
<BR>
might fix the problem, but that gave me a syntax error.=C2=A0=C2=A0 I've onl=
y been<BR>
scripting for about 2 months.=C2=A0=C2=A0 Would anyone happen to know how to=
 solve<BR>
such<BR>
type-matching errors?=C2=A0=C2=A0 The impression I get is that you can't com=
pare a<BR>
string to a class.<BR>
