Automating the deployment of a DUN/VPN connection (CMAK)


Armin Linder

Hi everyone,

after messing with the Microsoft Connection Manager (CMAK, from the
Windows 2003 server CD) for more than 4 Weeks now I desperately seek
help by the community ...

I preset InternetUserName and InternetPassword in the .cmp file like
described in the docs. This seems to work half way: when I open the DUN
connection using the GUI the username field gets populated correctly,
while the password field is blank. Obviously the password from the -cmp
file is not imported.

What I want is a fully automated setup of a DUN connection, and having
the user enter the password is unacceptable, since the users may not
know that password at all, nor may they change it.

Has anyone managed to configura a fully automatic DUN connection using
the CMAK and preset the ISP login credentials?

Btw, I have found, ordered and installed MS-KB hotfix 893609 "Preset
connection manager credentials may not work in Windows XP", which
describes exactly the problem I experience here, but that didn't change
