  • Editing Registry

    I cannot restart my "RasMan" service (W2K). As a result I'm unable to make a dial-up connection. If I try to start "RasMan" I will get an "Access denied" message, although logged under "Administrator"!

    I know this problem will only resolve by editing the Registry but don't know which part deals with this?

    Does anyone know?

    Will be grateful for any help offered.

    You didn't state which OS you're using, so I assume you're using XP.

    You described this senario:

      Thanks for your time, ahinson.

      The OS is W2K - (I've edited the main text accordingly).

        Managed to sort out my problem by following the instructions mentioned in Article - 329441. This is the same for both XP and W2k.

        I edited out the following subkeys from the Registry:

        HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\RasMan\PPP\EAP\25

        HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\RasMan\PPP\EAP\26

        And to my delight my Dial-up connections reappeared after a reboot .
