Set RAS Redial Attempts

 Keywords:  

Question:

Does anyone know the rasentryset parameter for setting the number of redials, I want to set it to no redial attempts (0)

Previously, I have use a binary edit to turn off the microsoft client in the phonebook (windows 2000) So I specifically am looking to change these entries that appear in rasphone.pbk using winsows 2000 sp2 andwinbatch 2002h

rasentryset("size","2088")
;rasentryset("options","1068303129")
;good rasentryset("options","127992601")
rasentryset("options","127927065")
rasentryset("countryid","1")
rasentryset("countrycode","1")
rasentryset("devicetype","modem")
rasentryset("ipaddr","0.0.0.0")
rasentryset("ipaddrdns","0.0.0.0")
rasentryset("ipaddrdnsalt","0.0.0.0")
rasentryset("ipaddrwins","0.0.0.0")
rasentryset("ipaddrwinsalt","0.0.0.0")
rasentryset("framesize","0")
rasentryset("netprotocols","4")
rasentryset("framingprotocol","1")
rasentryset("script","")
rasentryset("autodialdll","")
rasentryset("autodialfunc","")
rasentryset("subentries","1")
rasentryset("dialmode","1")
rasentryset("dialextrapercent","75")
rasentryset("dialextrasampleseconds","120")
rasentryset("hangupextrapercent","10")
rasentryset("hangupextrasampleseconds","120")
rasentryset("idledisconnectseconds","0")
rasentryset("type","1")
rasentryset("encryptiontype","3")
rasentryset("customauthkey","0")
rasentryset("customdialdll","")
rasentryset("vpnstrategy","0")

here is how I used to change the ms_server option, but I think there must be a better way

old="ms_server=1"
new="ms_server=0"

infile="C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Network\Connections\Pbk\rasphone.pbk"
fs=filesize(infile)
binbuf=binaryalloc(fs+100)
ret=binaryread(binbuf,infile)
num=binaryreplace(binbuf,old,new,0)
binarywrite(binbuf,infile)

here is what I get back phone# changed

Note that the info I get back from the sample script that shows the configuration of an existing connection. It does not change at all if I change redial attempts

Answer:

In the current version of the extender, the function RasEntrySet has an element that allows you to specify the number of re-dial attempts on Windows XP. I would suggest getting the latest version of the Ras Extender from the download area.

User Reply:

for now I just did the same binary replace that I did for the ms_server except it was redialattempts=3 to redialattempts=0

I could also loop through the ras connections and handle the entries in the phonebook with the ini functions incase the number changed, but this is pre-client install so should not be an issue.
