Look in Control Panel -> Phone and Modem options, and the dialing rules are in there. You can then use the dialing rules in the Network and Dial Up connections dialogue box when you set up a dialer connectoid. .... T

Thanks for you input. Unfortunatelly i was asking how you can change the default modem that a connection will use by editing the REGISTRY.

Setting the control panel option changes the registry, and does the job correctly, so I am not clear on what additional you would like to do. .... T

The main key is in HK Current User -> Remote Access -> Profile. Unfortunately the different elements are in different places, so you would have to check through all the possible places for variables.

Hello,
I am unable to find the current provided path in the registry.
After Remote Access there are no sub-folders.

Thanks

John HurstBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
In the main Remote Access key, you need a sub key for Profile, and the a sub key that has the name of the dialer. In there are a number of variables that need to be set. At this point, the discussion would become circular because the variables are the ones set in Control Panel. I can recognize the variables, but I cannot tell you how to construct them from first principles. ... T

I am not sure if you understood what i am trying to accomplish.
When you perform a dial-up connections and multiple modems are found, in the properties of that dial-up connection you are able to select the default modem to be used for that connection.
I need to find the registry key for that particulat option, meaning: default modem to be used.

Thanks
