RRAS: Autodial a connection on startup

By A_C ·
I have a USB DSL modem attached to my Win2k Server and have a Demand-Dial
connection setup to use NAT on a static IP (using the 192.
168.x.x setup) network. Currently when the system starts up, I logon, go
into the RRAS console and manually establish the connection. From then on,
all clients on the network (only three at this time) use that connection as
a shared connection. If the connection isn't established, RRAS tries to
establish the connection on it's own upon a enternal IP request.

When the systems starts up, it automatically establishes the connection
without any manual actions. I want to do this because 99% of the time the
connection needs to be established for the network.

I thought I could possibly do this with a startup script. If not, then
maybe just create a script using WSH or even a tiny VB app that would access
the connection via RRAS programatically and establish it that way.
