I've written a script in AccuTerm that will connect and login automatically to our D3 server. Part of the script is a loop which will trigger if the initial connection attempt fails (which will happen because the wifi isn't great).

My problem (I think) is that the wifi signal will drop which causes the AccuTerm session to be abandoned. Is there a way to re-run a script when the connection is lost?

I've poured over the AccuTerm docs and the docs for the SAX Basic scripting used with AccuTerm. As far as I can tell there's no way to trigger a disconnect event. I did find a solution to my problem however.

I've got the session setup to auto-close on disconnect and I've set AccuTerm to auto-exit when the last session is closed. Which will totally shutdown AccuTerm when the session is disconnected. To relaunch I've written a Windows batch script that will launch AccuTerm in a loop:

    tasklist /FI "IMAGENAME eq atwin71.exe" 2>NUL | find /I /N "atwin71.exe" >NUL
    if %errorlevel% == 0 goto endlaunchaccuterm
    start /wait C:\touchscreen\time_clock_login.atsc
timeout 10
goto launchaccuterm

In the event of a disconnect the script will start a countdown and then relaunch AccuTerm after 10 seconds. If desired this CMD window can be closed to prevent the relaunch.
