Hello Guys, this is a huge problem I am having, I need to join a remote server to my network. This server will be my front-end server for exchange and will also be a DC server for me. I already setup the vpn connections, and etc and I was able to get that server to join my domain.

However, now when I login I do not have the option to log-in using the dial-up connections (vpn), so of course my domain is unavailable when I try to login.

I basically need to know how to add the option to login using a dialup connection in my Login screen..

I know this is possible in windows XP, and I have done it, but I completely forgot how to! :(

THANKS!!!
THIS IS URGENT! :(

Carlos.

Edit your VPN connection and go to the options screen, tell it to include the Windows Domain when you login

That just puts the Domain option in the VPN connection.. not in the Windows Logon Screen..

Ok, I figured it out.

I made a new connection for VPN to my site, I made the program "rasdial.exe" run as a service, specifically c:\Windows\System32\rasdial.exe "vpnsitename"

This makes the rasdial run as a service connecting you to the specified VPN connection.

Thanks anyways...
