I don't believe that there is.  Each dialup has a specific modem placed on it and I think this is why you can not copy and paste dialup connections.

Perhaps if you tell us a bit more about the setup, OS, version, etc. and your ultimate goal, we'll come up with some alternative methodology.

I'd add this:  

If it is a matter of capturing pure screen information to share with someone else, and it's not a network and compliance issue, try this:

Open WORDPAD and minimize, then go to the DUN connectoid you like and want to get a screen capture on to share with someone else.  Then when you see what you like to a ALT+PRTSCRN at the same time to capture the image; then pop over to the minimized Wordpad session and paste the information.....

That works nicely.  You may opt to use Word or other Word Processors for this, I merely pointed to Wordpad (W98 component) since it keeps some level of formatting and hyperlinks that Notepad does not.

You can drag the dialup connection to the Floppy drive and choose copy. Then take the floppy and put it on another PC then drag the copy to the DUN and choose copy. The only thing is if you have a different madem you will have to go to the properties of the copy and change it after it has been copied to the new workstation.

I think astaec is going to have the best solution. The connectoid information is placed into the user.dat file via the dialup.htt template. I don't think you should copy the user.dat file to another PC, but if your brave... go for it.

To verify my claims do the following:

1. create a new dial up connection NOTE the time and date.
2. Open windows explorer and search *.* for the date you created the connectioid, hopefully right after creating it. You will find two files have changed "User.dat" and the windows swap file.
