rasphone at startup. How?

I need to start my internet connection when computer starts, BEFORE I login.

I tried to create a .bat file containing:
rasphone -d "ConnectionName"

and inserted it as script in gpedit.msc.

Script starts before user logon but it cannot connect to internet because of "invalid username or password".

Maybe windows cannot read connection password if no user is connected ?

how can i do ?

many thanks,

Hi Sunlight,

Try RASDIAL instead. It allows you to specify a username and password for the connection:
RASDIAL "ConnectionName" username password
