Passwords in dial-up

Hi all, we need to transfer all configurations of password, username, etc from dialup connection from one user to another one. Any help?
We are using windows nt 4.0 workstation.

Thanks in advance

Re: Passwords in dial-up

Probably cannot do any of what you ask, definitely not anything dealing with passwords and account information. .pwl information is encrypted and restricted to specific user. Not only that, it is identified with the security identifier associated with a specific user. This is why you cannot create a user account on machine B the same as machine A and copy the .pwl file from machine A to machine B and expect it to work. It won't.

I did this only on Win98. The data was in the Registry under hkey_current_user\RemoteAccess\Addresses.
