Note: This behavior is different from versions of Windows NT RAS earlier than Windows NT 4.0; earlier version of Windows NT remain connected when logging off from the local computer.
To modify the behavior of RAS when logging off, change the value of the following registry key:
Range: 0 or 1
Default: 0 (disabled)
By default, when logging off, Windows closes all RAS connections opened during the session. If this registry key value is added and set to 1, the system will not close RAS connections when logging off. This registry key value does not appear in the registry unless you add it.
Note Changing the KeepRasConnections registry key to remain connected after you log off from a RAS client is not supported in Windows Vista."
