This setting is displayed if you define your connection individually.

The Avira AntiVir Premium Updater automatically detects which connection options are available. Connection options which are not available are grayed out and cannot be activated. A dial-up connection can be established manually via a phone book entry in Windows, for example.

If you have forgotten an existing Internet account name or password, contact your Internet Service Provider.

The automatic dial-up of the updater through so called dial-up tools (e.g. SmartSurfer, Oleco, ...) is currently not available in Avira AntiVir Premium.

Terminate a dial-up connection that was set up for the update

If this option is enabled, the RDT connection made for the update is automatically interrupted again as soon as the download has been successfully carried out.

This option is not available under Vista. Under Vista the dial-up connection opened for the update is always terminated as soon as the download has been  carried out.
