RAS entry into registry

Posted on 2000-03-22
Last Modified: 2012-08-14

I'm looking for all registry keys created when I create a new RAS entry in my PhoneBook.

I want to create a RAS entry with a VB application, and I need to know which keys I have to create in the registry.
Is this the same for Win 95, 98 and NT ?

Thanks for any help,

Win9X does keep this in the registry, NT keeps it in a file, not in the registry

Is it possible to know more about this ?
Which keys in the Win9x's registry and which file is updated under NT ?

OK, I think I've found the file under NT : C:\winnt\system32\ras\rasphone.pbk

I'm now searching under 95...
