Let other computers control shared dial up connection in server 2003



Do someone know how to configure my shared dial-up connection in Windows Server 2003 (RC2) so that other computers can control it (connect/disconnect it)?

In winXP i have three choices:
- Allow other computer to use it
- Establish a connection whenever a computer needs it
- Allow other computers to control it (connect/disconnect)

In server 2003 the last option is not listet... :(
its a server, so settings are not in the same place if they are thereat all. it is ment to be in a domain anyway, not a workgroup and sharing a connection unless it has a proxy (isa say....)

i have 2003 server too , you have yours in an ad/domain setup? then the settings for the last item would be controlled through a mmc somewhere remotely to server. not as a choice for each local user


It should be possible to at least select which users had permissions to connect disconnect the dial-up (administrators for instance). :huh:

Electronic Punk:

Yes, just share rightclick the connection -> advanced -> check "allow other computers to control...".

Then on the client run the network setup wizard, make sure that it finds the right shared connection - and then you can find the connection in "Network Connections", just as a normal dial-up connection.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
