Features - Scheduled Execution

If you wish, you can set up a schedule of times to run News Rover. You also can specify the Windows dial-up Internet connection that is to be used to connect to your Internet provider.

At scheduled times, News Rover dials your Internet provider and downloads messages and files until it is scheduled to stop. At that time it disconnects from your Internet provider and hangs up. Information about its progress through the newsgroups is saved so that News Rover can continue its message scan when the next scheduled run time arrives.

You can set up News Rover so that is runs automatically while you are sleeping or at work, but cause it to stop during times when you may need to use your phone line for other purposes.

Note: Scheduled execution of News Rover is available with both the Windows 95 and Windows NT versions. However, the feature that causes News Rover to initiate a dial-up connection is currently available only in the Windows 95 version. With the Windows NT version, you must initiate the connection to your Internet provider before running News Rover.
