For some time I've been using a custom AppleScript that allows me to connect to the Net using the Remote Access scripting commands. I've got the script assigned to one of my iBook's functions keys...

All has been working well until today, when I installed MacOS 9.1 Now when I try to run the script, it continually fails. The culprit seems to be the Remote Access OSAX command "RA status". Everytime the script makes the call, I receive the error: "The Apple Shared Library Manager could not be opened."

Anyone else getting this error? Is anyone familiar with the "Apple Shared Library Manager"--is it a new part of the OS?

Any help would be appreciated.

I have exactly the same problem with exactly the same message; I 've been reading around and since there are changes to Apple Script and also to ARA well, this might be the cause; hopefully somebody will compile a new script to "disconnect".... I use it a lot...

Glad to hear I'm not alone. I've checked the AppleScript dictionary for the remote access scripting and the commands should still be included... Did someone forget to update the dictionary or did someone forget to include a necessary library in the 9.1 update?

The best part of the script I wrote (that now doesn't work) is that once you establish a dial-up connection, it creates a desktop icon representing the PPP connection. To disconnect all you need to do is drag the icon to the trash. I think it's a great tie-in to the Mac experience, plus it's really easy for beginning users to understand.
