connecting to nt domain behind pptp

By zinnix ·
Remote nt4 domain with firewall and pptp.
mobile users using dial-up pptp to get internal servers.
I have a remote nt workstation.
I want this machine to be part of the remote domain.
I installed it as member server.
I established pptp connection.
I joined it to the domain, got "welcome to the xxx domain",
and was asked to reboot.
now the nice question: After boot, I can't login
to the domain, since my pptp is not up, yet.

So How I run pptp before loging?
I build a batch file to create ras connection. I thought on using it as service.
but failed.

Ideas?
intsrv to install it as service but failed.

Download and install RRAS (Rouing and Remote Access). It's a free download from MS and will allow you to create a DOD (Dial on Demand) solution. This will establish the underlying connection you were trying to create with a service/batch file. It comes with a wizard that is pretty straight forward... Let me know...

I know.
I even used a registery key to "hold"
the dial up upon logout.
but still, I need manualy to establish the pptp connection after the first boot.

That depends on the remote NT's internet connection. If it is a LAN connection, then on the logon screen choose "Log on using dial-up connection". Doing so brings up a menu, you can choose which connection to dial. This works just fine, I've been using it for awhile. If you need to dial in first for Internet connection with a modem, then I don't know. NT won't be able to make two connections at the time of authentication.

You can fix this problem with two simple steps.

1) Add Dial-up Services to this NT machine.
2) Shut-down and reboot

Since you have already joined the domain, after you reboot, at the login prompt you will see a box you can check below the login. LOGIN USING DIAL-UP NETWORKING.

Enter your credentials for your NETWORK (SERVER) login into the username and password box, select the correct domain, then select the check box, and click ok.

Next you will be prompted for which dial-up connection to use. Select your dial-up, enter your user name and password, make sure the domain portion of this login is BLANK.

Select ok.

NT will first dial up your ISP, and once it authenticates with your ISP, it will then begin the network authentication.

Let me know if you still have issues.

We have several clients in far remote locations, who use this exact method of dialing in. It works great for us.

It is NTserver, I am trying to connect to the remote pptp domain.
It is going to be a server. I need an auto solution, not a manual one.
I can't afford a person to login manualy at 3:00am, if the server is done for some reason.
I tried using pptpand RRAS and told him to use
presistent connection.
It doesn't get default gateway, and thus, wont see the remote domain.
