Recreate Road Warriors’ Connections the Easy Way

We have many road warriors at our company. Some road warriors have multiple dial-up connections. A colleague recently asked me if there was an easy way to recreate all the dial-up connections when a road warrior uses a different laptop. I discovered a way to accomplish this task without having to manually recreate each connection. You simply copy the rasphone.pbk file from the source machine to the target machine. You can find this file at C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Network\Connections\PBK. Note that Application Data is a hidden folder by default. After you copy the file to the target machine, you'll probably have to reboot it to see the added dial-up connections.
