Enable Log on using dial-up connection by default

Hello Everyone,

I am working on overhauling the way our VPN system works. One of the nuances I'm having trouble with is the "Log on using dial-up connection" checkbox on the Windows XP logon screen. By default, it is unchecked. I'd like to have it checked by default.

The problem I'm having is that the only solution I've found so far is setting the RASForce registry value to 1. This does enable the checkbox, but grays it out so that users cannot uncheck it. Unfortunately, my users don't always have internet access, so I need it to be un-checkable. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Best Regards,
Martin

A Policy is going to enable/disable the setting, and disallow any changes.....

I think your easiest bet would be a training issue, to leave it unmanaged by default, and make sure people are aware of WHEN to check the box.....

johnb6767,

Thank you for your feedback. It may very well be that there is no way to do exactly what we're looking to do, and in that case we have decided to pursue educating our users and making a policy that when internet access is available, that box needs to be checked.

I'm going to leave this question open for another day to see if there are any other ideas, otherwise I'll just have to accept that it can't be done. Thanks again.

Best Regards,
Martin
