Removing Dialup Networking Password

By saidanddone ·
I would like to remove the Access Password from Dialup Networking. This is the password that allows you access the machine when dialing into it. (I really I would just like to change it). I have seen references to something called the Password List Editor, but cannot seem to find how to access it.

Any suggestions ??

Removing Dialup Networking Password

by Curacao_Dejavu In reply to Removing Dialup Networkin ...

Here is how to install it.

To install Password List Editor, follow these steps:


In Control Panel, double-click Add/Remove Programs.


On the Windows Setup tab, click Have Disk.


In the Copy Manufacturer's Files From box, type the appropriate line, and then click OK:

Windows 98:

<cd-rom drive>tools\reskit\netadmin\pwledit

where <cd-rom drive> is the drive letter of the CD-ROM drive containing the Windows 98 CD-ROM.

Windows 95:

<cd-rom drive>admin\apptools\pwledit

where <cd-rom drive> is the drive letter of the CD-ROM drive containing the Windows 95 CD-ROM.


seems to me it's easier to browse the cd and then install the software ,

regards,

leopold

Thank you for your response. I am still in my predicament, but at least I know where to find this application. Now I have to figure out how to use it.

You could also do a search for all *.pwl files and delete them all. This would however also delete other passwords saved on your machine.

Both above will work.

To change the password:
Go into Dial-Up Networking and highlight the default connection. Go up and click on connections in the toolbar. Click on Dial-up Server. Change the password.

Thank You, but my problem was that the password already exists, but I need to change it but do not have the original password.
