Disable DUN’s save password feature


Many of us have failing memories. For us, it is a very nice feature to have the
DUN (Dial-Up Networking) program remember the password for logging onto a
network. This is also a serious security problem for laptop users. To disable:

Hive: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
Key: SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\RasMan\Parameters
Name:
DisableSavePassword
Type: REG_DWORD
Value: 1

After reboot, DUN will no longer disable the Save
Password
check box, nor will it remember any passwords set prior to this
registry change.
