How can I automatically have windows connect to the web using a RAS "connect to" shortcut upon windows startup, Using the default RAS connection?

I think I saw some software that does that, but I prefer something that can be done without downloading additional software. (I think that rundll32.exe <something> could do the trick).

See this python snippet for win32api example of handling RAS using win32api.

What Windows version? The thing I found is for NT... – Ivo Flipse Jul 27 '09 at 8:49
Let's take XP and above. I don't think XP has a much different RAS interface in this regard then older NT based windowses. – Elazar Leibovich Jul 27 '09 at 10:07

Try to drag'n drop the connection icon in Network Connection into the startup folder.

Nope. It would show the "connect to" dialog, but wouldn't start connecting. – Elazar Leibovich Jul 27 '09 at 10:06
You can configure the connection to suppress this dialog, as far as i remember. – Manuel Faux Jul 27 '09 at 10:31
