password no longer embedded in DUN

By e.schmerling ·
When I re-loaded my system a month ago, my password was retained in the dialler (DUN).

Now it is no longer retained, and I have to enter it by hand for any session.

How can I get back my retained password ?

Thanks,

-Erwin

I'm using Win98 SE

i'm not sure if you login to your system but if you dont that's the problem. If you login windows a profile is created which stores that information. Once that is done you should be able to select to remember the login info.
Let me know if yo need any additional help with this

I do not use a password to open Windows

I got an answer from a search of the Microsoft Knowledge base.

One registry entry needed to enable the password cache by changing a 0 to a 1

I seem to recall a bug in retained passwords in dun. One possible solution is to unistall dun, and reboot, then reistall and reboot. If that doesn't work, go to the microsoft knowlege base and look for questions q137361 or q148925. Good luck.

Answer 1 & 2 is great ... follow them you should have no problem ... Additional thing you can do is to reinstall your network components ... e.g. Client for Microsoft Networks etc ... make sure you have the CD!!! :)

Have 98se CD on desk. Delete your Dun. Then
add and remove programs, centre tab dble click communications, take tick out of dail up networking, Reboot and reverse process.
you will then need to reboot. make new dun
and you should be able to tickbox to save password. This will not be cemented until you make a successful login,Also make sure you do not have family login as the primary login. hope this helps.
