Hi All,

I ask this one again as I didnt get any solutions last time.
----------
Hi All,

How can I move dial up network connectiods so that other users can use the same suit of settings in
the DUN description?

Trying to drag and drop them causes only a shortcut to be created.

Is there something in the registry that prevents this? Is it the case that I can use the CLSID for these
objects in some way?

We have 600 laptop users with the same image and laptop model.

This is just a suggestion more then a direct answer to your question. To the best of my knowledge I know of no way to copy a DUN connection from one pc to another. This may be by design and you may have to create these connections separately on each pc. If this ends up being the case then I suggest that you let the users do the work for you.

Whenever something has come up where I've had to touch all the machines to make changes, I have educated the users into doing the work for me. I have IIS installed on a server and I create very detail web pages that show step by step how to make the changes. You can download the Snag-It program and it creates nice screen shots for you to use in you pages.

This may not be what your looking for but it worked for me when I had to show 1000+ users how to make .pst files from outlook when we migrated to Lotus Notes. I created a web site, sent out the link in the email and the users did the work themselves. Just imagine how much time I saved by not having go around to each of these 1000 machines.

Just some food for thought

The only way I know to do this is to Export/import the RemoteAccess key in the registry.

This works for win9x, but I have not tested this on win2k.
In NT there is a RAS Phonebook.

I hope this helps !

in Nt
HKEY_USers\Default\RemoteAccess.

You may need to check current users also.

Search for the name of a dialup connection in the registry in win2k to find the correct location to export from.

I hope this helps !

You can try making a custom connection using CMAK or Connection Manager Administration Kit.

This is available many ways including the Microsoft Windows 2000 Server Resource Kit.

The actual settings are stored in a phonebook (PBK) file. You can find it in "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application data\Microsoft\Network\Connections\Pbk" or so.
