Connection Keeper Review

Felix Cheng
Prevents your internet connection from being dropped due to inactivity
A review of Connection Keeper by Felix Cheng

You might not believe it, but there are still millions of people on this planet which still use dialup Internet connections. For those people, there is Connection Keeper.

Connection Keeper is a freeware application which simulates activity so that your dialup connection isn't interrupted. Many ISPs track usage so that if you're not using the connection, your connection will be dropped.

This can be frustrating to users who prefer to maintain their connections. Thankfully, Connection Keeper is a program which is still maintained to keep an eye on that.

You can use Connection Keeper to manage the times and dates that your Internet connection should remain active.

Connection Keeper features and highlights:
  • Can be set to automatically redial if the connection is lost.
  • Can automatically close popup windows that ask the user if they want to stay online
  • Can be minimized to the system tray so that it does not take up space on the taskbar
  • Can run when not connected to the Internet
  • The simulated activity takes up almost no bandwidth
  • The interval at which Connection Keeper simulates activity is adjustable
  • Connection Keeper can download a real or bogus URL
  • Connection Keeper can be used to monitor web sites and even DNS records
  • Connection Keeper can monitor DNS blacklists to alert you if your IP address or mail server has become blacklisted
  • Command line parameters can be used to close a specific popup window
  • Command line parameters can be used to check for the existence of a file
  • Command line parameters can be used to download a web page and report any errors that occur
