Win2k RAS error 623 -- how to stop this permanently?

Posted on 2007-08-05

Hello experts!

I'm running Win2k SP3 and have a few different RAS dialers set up. I keep getting RAS error 623, which is easily fixable by clicking on "Internet Options" in the Control Panel, choosing the "Connections" tab, and selecting "Never dial a connection" and then applying it. However, every time I reboot this is NOT set to "Never dial a connection" and instead is set to "Always dial my default connection." This means I have to reset this every time upon reboot if I want to avoid that RAS error.

Does anyone have an insight into how I can fix this permanently?

Thanks for any help you can provide.

    i'm sure there may be some policy changing this..

    i think
    the registry key is
    HKCU\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\internet settings\enable autodial ="0"

    look at that registry key when you make the changes to see if that is the correct one.,.

    and if so, then export the registry key and set
     a shortcut in the startup group
    regedit /s disableautodial.reg

    or something

    Hi again,

    Yes, I was able to do the things you said and this does change the key as I want. But it's still set back upon startup... Probably some auto-started application is doing it. To get around it, I just coded a little routine to change the reg key when I click a button, so it saves work. Thanks for your help, anyway, and I'm giving you the points because your answer put me on the right track. Thanks!
