Mostly, users log on to computers that are running Microsoft Windows 2000 or Microsoft Windows Server 2003 by using a dial-up connection or by using a virtual private network (VPN) connection. Users use a user name, a password, and a domain name when they log on. Windows 2000-based computers and Windows Server 2003-based computers that run Routing and Remote Access or IAS may not be able to authenticate users if they omit one or more of these credentials. By default, if a user does not specify a domain name, Routing and Remote Access and IAS try to authenticate user accounts against the domain that the server belongs to.
You can change the default domain by modifying a registry key on the server that is running Routing and Remote Access or IAS. To do so, follow these steps:
- Click Start, and then click Run.
- In the Open box, type
regedit, and then click OK.
- Locate and then click the following registry key:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\RASMAN\PPP\ControlProtocols\BuiltIn
- In the right pane, right-click the
DefaultDomain registry key, and then click
- In the Value data box, type
RRAS or IAS, and then click
