Hi,

I'm trying to create a package containing a Dial-up networking connection. So far I have captured the creation of the connection. that works OK except for the username password.

Does anyone know if it possible to package a username/password for a dial-up networking connection?

Don't think you can do this and I wouldn't recommend it either!

It's not a big issue, but it's on the wishlist... (if at all possible)

Hi Bananas:

May I know whats the OS on which you are trying to do this since dialup networking stores password and username in a pwl file which you may include in your package to get it starting. So i need to know the os.

Don't think 2k and above uses .pwl anymore as this was part of the Win9x/ME era, but do correct me if I'm wrong!

The issue got a bit more pressing, a service is using the connection, the user is not prompted for a username/password. Users are unable to even view connections, so they can't set the password manualy...

Suggestions are highly appreciated.

Ilikebananas,
what an interesting setup you've got...[&:]
Do you have control over the RAS server, or is it out of your hands? Can you set up access accounts on the server?

Dunno how you captured the dial-up and if thats why you got the problem.

But you only need to include the rasphone.pbk which can be found in "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Network\Connections\Pbk", so no need for capture.

AngelD:
Yes, I've got that one [;)] But it's not saving the userid/password.

revizor:
Unfortunately I can only control the client side.

I have a lead which I can try, I'll keep you posted.

A side note about "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Network\Connections\Pbk":
the file does not have to be named rasphone.pbk - any .pbk file(s) in that folder will do the trick. You probably don't want to kill all of the existing dialup sessions on a PC by overwriting rasphonebook.pbk, do you?

Hi all,

It has been a while, but here's an update:
A collegue of mine used the rasdial.exe api to create an executable to set the user-id / password. (you can also use the commandline)
Unfortunately this works only for user-phonebook entries, and the service runs as local system.

It appears I will have to change the service to give it access to the dial-up connection.

P.s. no local useraccounts allowed...

Hi

I know it was a while ago but do you think you could provide an example of how your collegue used rasdial to set the user name and password?


Thanks

If you want to use RasDial and don't want the password to be clear open you could use CPAU to encrypt a "JOB File" (execute commands) and then later on execute this "JOB File". I've done this with RasDial long time ago and works like a charm.

Thanks Nick and Angel

I know I can create the connection with Rasdial. However I understood the post as to mean she/he had Set the password user name using Rasdial. (Saved in the connection itself, rather then using a sperate connection batch)

I would like the password stored in the network connection itself, I guess if this was possible it would be quite easy to deploy dialers.

Dead line is comming up so it will be deployed without a stanadard user name password.

Thanks for the quick answers.

Hi All,

Password and Username stored in the network connection can be done with Nircmd.exe. Look for setdialuplogon switch.

Take care ... if Phonebook is for AllUsers, dialup *may be* for CurrentUser. Nircmd can be run by usual method for every user even with non-admin priviledges.

Hope this Help !
... and sorry for my FrenGlish
