Enable Log on using dial-up connection by default
Posted on 2010-09-15
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!
