    Ich befürchte, für DSL gibts sowas doch nicht (?), ich mein, wer DSL hat, braucht normalerweise nicht mehr auf die Onlinezeit zu gucken... Sonst stell Dir halt eine Schachuhr neben den Mac ;-))

    Hättest Du jetzt ISDN oder so gehabt, hätte ich Dir den PPPremierTimer empfohlen, der funzt aber nur mit FreePPP/OTPPP bzw. Remote Access: http://www.biggerplanet.com/pppremier/

    PPP Genie is a handy utility for Mac OS X for opening, closing, and monitoring your PPP connection. In the menu bar or in a small titanium window, PPP Genie lets you monitor your throughput and the time and money you are spending online.

    Advanced Features

    * Automatically launch selected applications when your PPP connection opens
    * Select sounds to play when connection opens and closes
    * Display the connection speed whenever you connect
    * Set time limits for each session, day, week, or month
    * If you have to pay for your usage by the minute, you can track your cost  you can even schedule multiple rates according to the day of week and time of day
    * Works with PPP or PPPoE

    Getting Started

    You can run PPP Genie in the menu bar, or in a window - or neither. PPP Genie has functionality which you may find useful even if you dont want to time or monitor your connections.

    When you first run PPP Genie, youll be presented with a welcome screen describing PPP Genies basic functionality. After you click Try It, youll be given the option of running PPP Genie in a window or in the menu bar.

    Connecting and Disconnecting

    In the PPP Genie window, the phone button on the left toggles the state of the connection. You can use it like an on/off switch for PPP.

    The global PPP Genie menu has an icon like the button in the PPP Genie window. Use the menu to connect and disconnect. Users of Mac OS X 10.1 and above may prefer to use Apples built-in PPP menu.

    Connection Status

    In either the window or the menu bar display, PPP Genie will by default show the length of the current connection and the throughput - how much data is being sent to and from your computer.

    The very small plug icon on the left of the display will flash while the connection is opening or closing. When your connection is open, the plug will remain visible. Your connection speed will be briefly displayed.

    Small bars appear to the right of the plug when there is network activity. The top bars represent uploading (data being sent from your computer), and the bottom bars represent downloading (data being sent to your computer). Three bars represent maximum throughput.

    Advanced Features

    PPP Genie can launch applications when your PPP connection opens, and quit them when your connection closes. For details, see the Behavior tab of the Preferences window.

    PPP Genie can impose time limits on internet usage. You can limit usage by the session, day, week, or month in the Timers tab of the Preferences window.

    If you pay for your internet usage by the minute, you can use PPP Genie to estimate your costs by configuring rates in the Rates tab of the Preferences window, and specifying their schedule in the Schedule tab.

    PPP Genies global menu is intended for users of Mac OS X 10.0.4 -- Mac OS X 10.1 introduced a built-in PPP menu. PPP Genies menu doesnt look quite right in Mac OS X 10.1.

    Only when connected

    Select this to have PPP Genie show its global menu only when PPP is open.

    t get these speeds automatically, so enter the values your ISP advertises in kbps (thousands of bits per second).

    Automatically check for new versions of PPP Genie

    If this option is checked, when you make a new connection, your copy of PPP Genie will check its version against the latest version on the Bigger Planet website. If there's a new version available, PPP Genie will alert you. It will never check more than once a day.

    You can also check for new versions manually by selecting "Check for New Version..." under the PPP Genie menu.

    Click to add an item through the standard file selection interface.

    Notification Tab

    Use the options under the notification tab to configure PPP Genie sounds and alerts.

    You can choose to have a sound play when the PPP connection opens, when the PPP connection closes, when youve reached a warning for a time/cost limit, or when a time/cost limit is exceeded.

    Play sound

    Check the Play sound option to have a sound play whenever the PPP connection opens.

    Choose

    Click the Choose button to select a sound. Sounds must be in AIFF format (their filenames must end with .aif or .aiff).

    Display alert

    Displays an alert that floats above other windows when a limit or warning is reached.

    Timers Tab

    Timers track time and cost within given periods: sessions (single PPP connections from start to finish), days, weeks, and months. When a timers period is up, it resets its accumulated time and cost values.

    Each timer can optionally have a time limit and/or cost limit imposed on it.

    Select a timer from the popup menu in the Timers tab to configure its options.

    Session

    The session timer automatically resets every time you start a new PPP connection.

    Daily

    You can choose what hour of the day the daily timer should reset. By default the daily timer resets at 12:00 midnight.

    Weekly

    You can choose which day of the week the weekly timer should reset. The weekly timer resets at 12:00 midnight on the day of the week you select. By default the weekly timer resets on Sunday.

    Time limit and Cost limit

    You can impose a time limit or a cost limit on the selected timer by checking the appropriate box.

    Disconnect if exceeded

    Check this box next to the appropriate limit to have PPP Genie automatically disconnect you when your limit has expired.

    Warn if

    Check this box and enter a value to have PPP Genie warn you by playing a sound or displaying an alert if your usage approaches the limit. For this option to have an effect, at least one of the options in the When warning box under the Notification must be selected.

    Rates Tab

    Rates only need to be configured if you pay for your PPP connection by the minute, and would like to estimate the cost of your usage.

    Under the Rates tab, you can specify any number of rates. You also need to configure the rate schedule under the Schedule tab.

    To create a new rate, click Create a New Rate button.

    Title

    Enter a name for the selected rates. Each rate title must be unique from the others.

    Active

    You can keep a rate from being applied by turning off this option.

    Rate

    Enter the primary rate here, in dollars (or your local currency) per minute.

    Alternate rate

    Check this option if, on a per-session basis, there is an alternate rate applied for some period. Enter the alternate rate and the number of minutes it applies.

    Flat fee

    If you pay a flat fee in place of, or in addition to, a per-minute rate, enter the fee here.

    Delete Selected Rate

    Click to remove the selected rate. If the rate has been used under the Schedule tab, it will be removed from the schedule.

    Create a New Rate

    Click to create a new rate.

    Schedule Tab

    If you have specified any rates you would like to use, you need to schedule them under the Schedule tab. Even if you have only specified a single rate, you still need to schedule it.

    To schedule a rate, you select it from the Select rate popup menu, then click and drag in the schedule.

    Select rate

    selecting a rate from the Select rate popup menu

    Choose a rate to schedule from the Select rate popup menu. To erase a rate from the schedule, choose No Rate.

    Dragging a range

    Drag a in the schedule to fill it with the selected rate. For example, to schedule a rate to apply from Monday through Friday, 7AM to 5PM, you could drag from Monday 7AM to Friday 5PM.

    dragging from Monday 7AM to Friday 5PM

    A yellow box will appear indicating the time you have selected. Note that although we say the rate applies from 7AM to 5PM, on the schedule it only fills up the row labeled 4PM. This is because each row specifies a full hour, so the 4PM row actually indicates 4:00PM - 4:59PM.

    Command dragging

    If you need to specify a rate schedule in smaller increments, hold down the command key. You will be able to specify rates in 15-minute increments.

    Totals Window

    In the PPP Genie Windows menu, you can select to see the Totals window. This will show a summary of all timers, and is updated in real time.
