I am trying to dial an isdn connection using rasdial.exe but I keep getting the message
"Remote Access error 691 - Access was denied because the username and/or password was invalid on the domain."

but when i dial using the gui ie from network connections and double click on the icon click connect it does it successfully.

in both cases i am not providing the username and the password as they are saved in the system.

I use the command
rasdial isdn

where isdn is then name of my DUN

Had a similar problem a couple years ago with NT4... I wonder if the rasdial.exe command-line tool won't use the credentials of the currently logged-on user instead of those saved with the phonebook entry. Could you please try to specify username and password on the command-line, just see how it goes ?

Alternatively, try using rasphone instead. Type rasphone /? for details.

_nn_: Thanks for the info.
The links you gave are the same info that is there in the netcfg.chm file. I went thro the manual  before I posted it here. I dont have the password for the connection as its saved. the reason for using rasdial is i can dial up from another PC instead of being physically present on that pc which rasphone may require (since rasdial allows unattended dialing).
