Disable remember password on Dial up Login screen

Is there a way to disable the checkbox to Save or Remember password when logging in remotely (dial in)?

We need to have it disabled for security purposes to force the users to always enter their password.  This is in case laptops are stolen, etc.

Are you running an Active Directory based domain with the laptops on at least Windows 2000? If so you can use Group Policy to disable password caching.

We do not have active directory.  Our PDC is NT 4.0 sp6a.  Most laptops are running XP professional and some are running Windows 2000.  Is there any other info I can provide?  Thanks for the speedy response, by the way!

Have to be a manual registry hack then.
You will need to deploy this change via a login script or something, and hope you don't have clued up users who reverse it.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\RasMan\Parameters

Create a new "REG_DWORD" value named DisableSavePassword. Set the value to 1.

Usual registry warnings apply...
