I have a pptp connection originating from Server 2003 to a pptp server.  I need this tunnel to always stay up.  How can I accomplish this?

a. run RRAS,
b. move to "Network Interfaces",
c. move to the Demand-dial type Interface and open the Properties,
d. move to the Options tab,

Let me know.

I've done that but it disconnects when I log off.  Is there any way to stop that from happening?

That should not happen. When you set a connection as Persistent this connection remain up (connected) as long as you shut down the server (or stop the service). Windows Application and System log report any useful entries?

it still disconnects the pptp connection at logoff or reboot.  I'm going to look at RRAS.
