RAS tries to dial out even on local resources.

A. Perform the following:

  1. Start the registry editor (regedit.exe)
  2. Move to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\RAS Autodial\Addresses (a better way to view these is to type "rasautou -s" from the command prompt)
  3. In the subkeys look from the local address (and name). If you find it select the key and select Delete from the Edit menu.
  4. Close the registry editor

You may also wish to add addresses to the disabled list:

  1. Start the registry editor (regedt32.exe not regedit.exe)
  2. Move to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\RAS Autodial\Control
  3. Double click on DisabledAddresses and add the address on a new line. Click OK when finished
  4. Close the registry editor

You will need to reboot the machine in both of the above cases.
