Members

  • dwSize
    Specifies the size, in bytes, of the RASENTRY structure. Before calling RasSetEntryProperties or RasGetEntryProperties, set dwSize to sizeof(RASENTRY) to identify the version of the structure.

  • dwfOptions
    A set of bit flags that specify connection options. Set one or more of the following flags.

    Note  

    You must clear all RASEO_RequiredXXX flags and the RASEO_Custom flag before setting RASEO_RequireEncryptedPw or RASEO_RequireMsEncryptedPw.

     

    Note  

    In certain cases, a call to RasGetEntryProperties will will return a RASENTRY structure with the RASEO_RequireEncryptedPw and RASEO_RequireMsEncryptedPw flags set. You should make sure to clear both of these flags before using the same RASENTRY structure in a call to RasSetEntryProperties.

     

    Flag Meaning
    RASEO_UseCountryAndAreaCodes If this flag is set, the dwCountryID, dwCountryCode, and szAreaCode members are used to construct the phone number. If this flag is not set, these members are ignored.

    This flag corresponds to the Use Country and Area Codes check boxes in the Phone dialog box.

    RASEO_SpecificIpAddr If this flag is set, RAS tries to use the IP address specified by ipaddr as the IP address for the dial-up connection. If this flag is not set, the value of the ipaddr member is ignored.

    Currently, an IP address set in the phone-book entry properties or retrieved from a server overrides the IP address set in the network control panel.

    RASEO_SpecificNameServers If this flag is set, RAS uses the ipaddrDns, ipaddrDnsAlt, ipaddrWins, and ipaddrWinsAlt members to specify the name of the server addresses for the dial-up connection. If this flag is not set, RAS ignores these members.
    RASEO_IpHeaderCompression If this flag is set, RAS negotiates to use IP header compression on PPP connections.

    If this flag is not set, IP header compression is not negotiated.

    It is generally advisable to set this flag because IP header compression significantly improves performance. The flag should be cleared only when connecting to a server that does not correctly negotiate IP header compression.

    RASEO_RemoteDefaultGateway If this flag is set, the default route for IP packets is through the dial-up adapter when the connection is active. If this flag is clear, the default route is not modified.

    This flag corresponds to the Use default gateway on remote network check box in the TCP/IP settings dialog box.

    RASEO_DisableLcpExtensions If this flag is set, RAS disables the PPP LCP extensions defined in RFC 1570. This may be necessary to connect to certain older PPP implementations, but interferes with features such as server callback. Do not set this flag unless specifically required.
    RASEO_TerminalAfterDial If this flag is set, RAS displays a terminal window for user input after dialing the connection.

    Do not set this flag if a dial-up networking script is to be associated with the connection, because scripting has its own terminal implementation.

    This flag works only if this phone-book entry is dialed by the RasDialDlg function. This flag has no effect if the entry is dialed by the RasDial function.

    RASEO_ModemLights If this flag is set, a status monitor is displayed in the task bar.
    RASEO_SwCompression If this flag is set, software compression is negotiated on the link. Setting this flag causes the PPP driver to attempt to negotiate CCP with the server. This flag should be set by default, but clearing it can reduce the negotiation period if the server does not support a compatible compression protocol.
    RASEO_RequireEncryptedPw If this flag is set, only secure password schemes can be used to authenticate the client with the server. This prevents the PPP driver from using the PAP plain-text authentication protocol to authenticate the client. The MD5-CHAP and SPAP authentication protocols are also supported. Clear this flag for increased interoperability, and set it for increased security. Setting RASEO_RequireEncryptedPw also sets RASEO_RequireSPAP, RASEO_RequireCHAP, RASEO_RequireMsCHAP, and RASEO_RequireMsCHAP2.

    This flag corresponds to the Require Encrypted Password check box in the Security dialog box. See also RASEO_RequireMsEncryptedPw.

    RASEO_RequireMsEncryptedPw If this flag is set, only the Microsoft secure password scheme, MSCHAP, can be used to authenticate the client with the server. This flag prevents the PPP driver from using the PPP plain-text authentication protocol (PAP), MD5-CHAP, or SPAP. See Also the following flags: RASEO_RequireMsCHAP, RASEO_RequireMsCHAP2, and RASEO_RequireW95MsCHAP. Setting RASEO_RequireMsEncryptedPw also sets RASEO_RequireMsCHAP and RASEO_RequireMsCHAP2.

    This flag corresponds to the Require Microsoft Encrypted Password check box in the Security dialog box. See also RASEO_RequireDataEncryption.

    RASEO_RequireDataEncryption If this flag is set, data encryption must be negotiated successfully or the connection should be dropped. This flag is ignored unless RASEO_RequireMsEncryptedPw is also set.

    This flag corresponds to the Require Data Encryption check box in the Security dialog box.

    RASEO_NetworkLogon If this flag is set, RAS logs on to the network after the point-to-point connection is established.
    RASEO_UseLogonCredentials If this flag is set, RAS uses the user name, password, and domain of the currently logged-on user when dialing this entry. This flag is ignored unless RASEO_RequireMsEncryptedPw is also set.

    Note that this setting is ignored by the RasDial function, where specifying empty strings for the szUserName and szPassword members of the RASDIALPARAMS structure gives the same result.

    This flag corresponds to the Use Current Username and Password check box in the Security dialog box.

    RASEO_PromoteAlternates This flag has an effect when alternate phone numbers are defined by the dwAlternateOffset member. If this flag is set, an alternate phone number that connects successfully becomes the primary phone number, and the current primary phone number is moved to the alternate list.

    This flag corresponds to the check box in the Alternate Numbers dialog box. The successful number is moved to the top of the list.

    RASEO_SecureLocalFiles If this flag is set, RAS checks for existing remote file system and remote printer bindings before making a connection with this entry. Typically, set this flag is set on phone-book entries for public networks to remind users to break connections to their private network before connecting to a public network.

    If either Client for Microsoft Networks or File and Print Sharing is unchecked for a given connection, calling RasGetEntryProperties returns dwfOptions with RASEO_SecureLocalFiles set. Calling RasSetEntryProperties with RASEO_SecureLocalFiles set unchecks both Client for Microsoft Networks and File and Print Sharing; resetting the bit checks both items.

    RASEO_RequireEAP If this flag is set, an Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) must be supported for authentication.
    RASEO_RequirePAP If this flag is set, Password Authentication Protocol must be supported for authentication.
    RASEO_RequireSPAP If this flag is set, Shiva's Password Authentication Protocol must be supported for authentication.
    RASEO_Custom If this flag is set, the connection uses custom encryption.
    RASEO_PreviewPhoneNumber If this flag is set, the remote access dialer displays the phone number to be dialed.
    RASEO_SharedPhoneNumbers If this flag is set, all modems installed on the local computer share the same phone number. This option has no effect unless multiple modems are installed.
    RASEO_PreviewUserPw If this flag is set, the remote access dialer displays the user's name and password prior to dialing.
    RASEO_PreviewDomain If this flag is set, the remote access dialer displays the domain name prior to dialing.
    RASEO_ShowDialingProgress If this flag is set, the remote access dialer displays its progress in establishing the connection.
    RASEO_RequireCHAP If this flag is set, the Challenge Handshake Authentication Protocol must be supported for authentication.
    RASEO_RequireMsCHAP If this flag is set, the Microsoft Challenge Handshake Authentication Protocol must be supported for authentication.
    RASEO_RequireMsCHAP2 If this flag is set, version 2 of the Microsoft Challenge Handshake Authentication Protocol must be supported for authentication.
    RASEO_RequireW95MSCHAP If this flag is set, RASEO_RequireMsCHAP must also be set and MS-CHAP must send the LanManager-hashed password.
    RASEO_CustomScript This flag must be set in order for RAS to invoke a custom-scripting DLL after establishing the connection to the server.

     

  • dwCountryID
    Specifies the TAPI country/region identifier. Use the RasGetCountryInfo function to enumerate country/region identifiers. This member is ignored unless the dwfOptions member specifies the RASEO_UseCountryAndAreaCodes flag.

  • dwCountryCode
    Specifies the country/region code portion of the phone number. The country/region code must correspond to the country/region identifier specified by dwCountryID. If dwCountryCode is zero, the country/region code is based on the country/region identifier specified by dwCountryID. This member is ignored unless dwfOptions specifies the RASEO_UseCountryAndAreaCodes flag.

  • szAreaCode
    Specifies the area code as a null-terminated string. If the dialing location does not have an area code, specify an empty string (""). Do not include parentheses or other delimiters in the area code string. For example, "206" is a valid area code; "(206)" is not. This member is ignored unless the dwfOptions member specifies the RASEO_UseCountryAndAreaCodes flag.

  • dwChannels
    Reserved for future use.

  • dwReserved1
    Reserved. Must be zero.

  • dwReserved2
    Reserved. Must be zero.

  • dwSubEntries
    Specifies the number of multilink subentries associated with this entry. When calling RasSetEntryProperties, set this member to zero. To add subentries to a phone-book entry, use the RasSetSubEntryProperties function.

  • dwDialMode
    Specifies whether RAS should dial all of this entry's multilink subentries when the entry is first connected. This member can be one of the following values.

    Value Meaning
    RASEDM_DialAll Dial all subentries initially.
    RASEDM_DialAsNeeded Adjust the number of subentries as bandwidth is needed. RAS uses the dwDialExtraPercent, dwDialExtraSampleSeconds, dwDialHangUpExtraPercent, and dwHangUpExtraSampleSeconds members to determine when to dial or disconnect a subentry.

     

Windows 2000: In order for RAS to dial all subentries, dwDialMode must be set to RASEDM_DialAll and the dwSubEntry member of RASDIALPARAMS must be set to zero.

Windows XP: To dial the first available subentry, set dwDialMode to zero, and set the dwSubEntry member of RASDIALPARAMS to zero.

  • dwDialExtraPercent
    Specifies a percent of the total bandwidth available from the currently connected subentries. RAS dials an additional subentry when the total bandwidth used exceeds dwDialExtraPercent percent of the available bandwidth for at least dwDialExtraSampleSeconds seconds.

    This member is ignored unless the dwDialMode member specifies the RASEDM_DialAsNeeded flag.

  • dwDialExtraSampleSeconds
    Specifies the number of seconds that current bandwidth usage must exceed the threshold specified by dwDialExtraPercent before RAS dials an additional subentry.

    This member is ignored unless the dwDialMode member specifies the RASEDM_DialAsNeeded flag.

  • dwHangUpExtraPercent
    Specifies a percent of the total bandwidth available from the currently connected subentries. RAS terminates (hangs up) an existing subentry connection when total bandwidth used is less than dwHangUpExtraPercent percent of the available bandwidth for at least dwHangUpExtraSampleSeconds seconds.

    This member is ignored unless the dwDialMode member specifies the RASEDM_DialAsNeeded flag.

  • dwHangUpExtraSampleSeconds
    Specifies the number of seconds that current bandwidth usage must be less than the threshold specified by dwHangUpExtraPercent before RAS terminates an existing subentry connection.

    This member is ignored unless the dwDialMode member specifies the RASEDM_DialAsNeeded flag.

  • dwIdleDisconnectSeconds
    Specifies the number of seconds after which the connection is terminated due to inactivity. Note that unless the idle time out is disabled, the entire connection is terminated if the connection is idle for the specified interval. This member can specify a number of seconds, or one of the following values.

    Value Meaning
    RASIDS_Disabled There is no idle time out for this connection.
    RASIDS_UseGlobalValue Use the user preference value as the default.

     

  • dwType
    The type of phone-book entry. This member can be one of the following types.

    Type Description
    RASET_Phone Phone line, for example, modem, ISDN, X.25.
    RASET_Vpn Virtual Private Network.
    RASET_Direct Direct serial or parallel connection.

    Windows Vista or later:  This type is no longer supported.

    RASET_Internet Connection Manager (CM) connection. This value is reserved for system use.
    RASET_Broadband Windows XP or later: Broadband connections, e.g. Digital Subscriber Line (DSL).

     

Windows XP: To create a Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet (PPPoE) connection programmatically, use the RASET_Broadband entry type. For more information, see PPPoE Connections.

  • dwEncryptionType
    The type of encryption to use with the connection. The encryption is either provided by IPSec (for L2TP/IPSec connections) or by Microsoft Point-to-Point Encryption (MPPE). This member can be one of the following values.

    Value Meaning
    ET_None No encryption.
    ET_Require Require encryption.
    ET_RequireMax Require maximum-strength encryption.
    ET_Optional Do encryption if possible. No encryption is okay.

     

    The value of dwEncryptionType does not affect how passwords are encrypted. Whether passwords are encrypted and how passwords are encrypted is determined by the authentication protocol, such as, PAP, MS-CHAP, or EAP. However, if IPSec encryption is negotiated it will provide an additional layer of encryption for the authentication protocol.

  • dwCustomAuthKey
    This member is used for Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP). This member contains the authentication key provided to the EAP vendor.

  • guidId
    The GUID (Globally Unique Identifier) that represents this phone-book entry. This member is read-only.

  • szCustomDialDll
    A null-terminated string that contains the full path and file name for the dynamic link library (DLL) that implements the custom-dialing functions. This DLL should export Unicode versions of functions named RasCustomDial, RasCustomHangup, RasCustomEntryDlg, and RasCustomDialDlg. These functions should have prototypes RasCustomDialFn and RasCustomHangUpFn as defined in Ras.h, and RasCustomDialDlgFn and RasCustomEntryDlgFn as defined in Rasdlg.h.

  • dwVpnStrategy
    The VPN strategy to use when dialing a VPN connection. This member can have one of the following values.

    Value Meaning
    VS_Default With this strategy, RAS dials Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP) first. If L2TP fails, Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP) is attempted. Whichever protocol succeeds is tried first in subsequent dials for this entry.

    Windows 7:  RAS dials Internet Key Exchange version 2 (IKEv2) first. If IKEv2 fails, RAS subsequently attempts the following protocols: Secure Socket Tunneling Protocol (SSTP), Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol(PPTP), and Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP).

    VS_PptpOnly RAS dials only PPTP.
    VS_PptpFirst RAS always dials PPTP first.

    Windows 7:  RAS always dials PPTP first followed by Internet Key Exchange version (IKEv2), Secure Socket Tunneling Protocol (SSTP), then Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP)

    VS_L2tpOnly RAS dials only L2TP.
    VS_L2tpFirst RAS always dials L2TP first.

    Windows 7:  RAS always dials L2TP first followed by IKEv2, SSTP, then PPTP

    VS_SstpOnly Windows Vista with SP1 or later: RAS dials only SSTP.
    VS_SstpFirst Windows Vista with SP1 or later: RAS always dials SSTP first followed by IKEv2, PPTP, then L2TP.
    VS_Ikev2Only Windows 7: RAS dials only IKEv2.
    VS_Ikev2First Windows 7: RAS always dials IKEv2 first followed by SSTP, PPTP, then L2TP.

     

  • dwfOptions2
    Note  Supported on Windows XP or later

     

    A set of bits that specify connection options. This member is a continuation of the bits specified in the dwfOptions member. Set one or more of the following bit flags.

    Flag Description
    RASEO2_SecureFileAndPrint If this flag is set, remote users are prevented from using file and print services over the RAS connection. Setting this flag is equivalent to clearing the File and Print Sharing for Microsoft Networks check box in the connection properties dialog box.
    RASEO2_SecureClientForMSNet If this flag is set, it is equivalent to clearing the Client for Microsoft Networks check box in the connection properties dialog box on the Networking Tab.
    RASEO2_DontNegotiateMultilink If this flag is set, the default behavior for the RAS client is not to negotiate multilink. Setting this flag is equivalent to unchecking the Negotiate multilink for single-link connection check box in the connection properties dialog box on the PPP settings dialog.
    RASEO2_DontUseRasCredentials If this flag is set, RAS uses the default credentials to access network resources. It does not add the RAS credentials to the credential manager which overrides the default credentials.
    RASEO2_UsePreSharedKey If this flag is set, use a pre-shared key for IPSec authentication. This flag is only used by L2TP/IPSec VPN connections.
    RASEO2_Internet If this flag is set, the connection is to the Internet.
    RASEO2_DisableNbtOverIP If this flag is set, NBT probing is disabled for this connection.
    RASEO2_UseGlobalDeviceSettings If this flag is set, RAS ignores the device settings specified in the phone-book entry. Instead, RAS uses the device settings specified in the modem control panel applet.
    RASEO2_ReconnectIfDropped If this flag is set, RAS automatically attempts to re-establish the connection if the connection is lost. This flag corresponds to the Redial if line is dropped check box in the Properties sheet for the connection.
    RASEO2_SharePhoneNumbers If this flag is set, RAS uses the same set of phone numbers for all subentries. RAS uses the set of phone numbers assigned to the first subentry. This flag has an effect only in the context of multilink connections. This flag corresponds to the All devices call the same number check box in the Properties sheet for the connection.
    RASEO2_SecureRoutingCompartment If this flag is set, this flag indicates the routing compartments feature is enabled for the connection id.
    RASEO2_IPv6SpecificNameServer If this flag is set, RAS uses the ipv6addrDns and ipv6addrDnsAlt members to specify the name of the DNS server addresses for the Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) connection. If this flag is not set, RAS ignores the members.
    RASEO2_UseTypicalSettings Windows Vista or later: If this flag is set, this configures the VPN connection to use the Typical Settings for Authentication and Encryption for the RAS connection.
    RASEO2_IPv6SpecificNameServers Windows Vista or later: If this flag is set, RAS uses the ipaddrDns, ipaddrDnsAlt, ipaddrWins, and ipaddrWinsAlt members for IPv6 to specify the name of the server addresses for the dial-up connection. If this flag is not set, RAS ignores these members.
    RASEO2_IPv6RemoteDefaultGateway Windows Vista or later: If this flag is set, the default route for IPv6 packets is through the PPP connection when the connection is active. If this flag is not set, the default route is not modified. This flag corresponds to the "Use default gateway on remote network" setting in the TCP/IP settings dialog box.
    RASEO2_RegisterIpWithDNS Windows Vista or later: If this flag is set, this flag indicates that the IP address for the RAS connection should be registered with DNS. This flag corresponds to the "Register this connection's addresses in DNS" setting in the advanced TCP/IP settings dialog box.
    RASEO2_UseDNSSuffixForRegistration Windows Vista or later: If this flag is set, the DNS suffix specified for this connection should be used for DNS registration. The DNS suffix is specified in the advanced TCP/IP settings dialog box next to the "DNS suffix for this connection" option. This flag corresponds to the "Use this connection's DNS suffix in DNS registration" setting in the advanced TCP/IP settings dialog box.
    RASEO2_IPv4ExplicitMetric Windows Vista or later: If this flag is set, the administrator is allowed to statically set the interface metric of the IPv4 stack for this interface. RAS uses the dwIPv4InterfaceMetric member in the RASENTRY structure to set the interface metric value of this interface to the stack. If this flag is not set, the stack automatically calculates the interface metric based on the link speed. RAS ignores the value of dwIPv4InterfaceMetric. This flag corresponds to the "Automatic metric" setting in the advanced TCP/IP settings dialog box.
    RASEO2_IPv6ExplicitMetric Windows Vista or later: If this flag is set, the administrator is allowed to statically set the interface metric of the IPv6 stack for this interface. RAS uses the dwIPv6InterfaceMetric member in the RASENTRY structure to set the interface metric value of this interface to the stack. When set to 0, the stack automatically calculates the interface metric based on the link speed. RAS ignores the value of dwIPv6InterfaceMetric. This flag corresponds to the "Automatic metric" setting in the advanced TCP/IP settings dialog box.
    RASEO2_DisableIKENameEkuCheck Windows Vista or later: If this flag is set, the IKE validation check will not be performed. This flag is only used for L2TP/IPSec-based VPN connections to validate the certificate received from the VPN server.
    RASEO2_DisableClassBasedStaticRoute Windows 7 or later: If this flag is set, a class-based route based on the VPN interface IP address will not be added.
    RASEO2_SpecificIPv6Addr Windows 7 or later: If this flag is set, RAS tries to use the IP address specified by ipaddr as the IPv6 address for the dial-up connection. If this flag is not set, the value of the ipaddr member is ignored. Currently, an IP address set in the phone-book entry properties or retrieved from a server overrides the IP address set in the network control panel.
    RASEO2_DisableMobility Windows 7 or later: If this flag is set, the client will not be able to change the external IP address of the IKEv2 VPN connection.
    RASEO2_RequireMachineCertificates Windows 7 or later: If this flag is set, machine certificates are used for IKEv2 authentication.
    RASEO2_UsePreSharedKeyForIkev2Initiator Windows 8 or later: If this flag is set, a pre-shared key is used by the initiator for the IPSec authentication. This flag is only used by IKEv2 tunnel based demand-dial connections.
    RASEO2_UsePreSharedKeyForIkev2Responder Windows 8 or later: If this flag is set, a pre-shared key is used by the responder for the IPSec authentication. This flag is only used by IKEv2 tunnel based demand-dial connections.
    RASEO2_CacheCredentials Windows 8 or later: If this flag is set, the user credentials will be cached at the end of a successful authentication.

     

    Note  Setting the RASEO2_SecureFileAndPrint and RASEO2_SecureClientForMSNet flags has the additional effect of disabling NBT probing for the connection. Therefore, the effect of setting these two flags is equivalent to setting these flags and also setting the RASEO2_DisableNbtOverIP flag. However, although the effect is the same, setting these two flags doesn't actually set the RASEO2_DisableNbtOverIP flag.

     

  • dwfOptions3
    Note  Supported on Windows XP or later

     

    This parameter is reserved for future use.

  • szDnsSuffix
    Note  Supported on Windows XP or later

     

    Pointer to a string that specifies the Domain Name Service (DNS) suffix for the connection. This string can be Unicode depending on the version of the structure you are using.

  • dwTcpWindowSize
    Note  Supported on Windows XP or later

     

    Specifies the TCP window size for all TCP sessions that run over this connection. Setting this value can increase the throughput of high-latency devices such as cellular phones.

Windows Vista or later:: This member is no longer supported.

  • szPrerequisitePbk
    Note  Supported on Windows XP or later

     

    Pointer to a null-terminated string that specifies the full path and file name of a phone-book (PBK) file. This phone-book file contains the entry specified by the szPrerequisiteEntry member. This member is used only for VPN connections.

  • szPrerequisiteEntry
    Note  Supported on Windows XP or later

     

    Pointer to a null-terminated string that specifies a phone-book entry. This entry should exist in the phone-book file specified by the szPrerequisitePbk member. The szPrerequisteEntry member specifies an entry that RAS dials prior to establishing the connection specified by this RASENTRY structure. This member is used only for VPN connections.

  • dwRedialCount
    Note  Supported on Windows XP or later

     

    Specifies the number of times RAS attempts to redial a connection.

  • dwRedialPause
    Note  Supported on Windows XP or later

     

    Specifies the number of seconds to wait between redial attempts.

  • ipv6addrDns
    Note  Supported on Windows Vista or later

     

    Contains the IPv6 address of the preferred DNS. A RASIPV6ADDR type is identical to a in6_addr structure.

  • ipv6addrDnsAlt
    Note  Supported on Windows Vista or later

     

    Contains the IPv6 address of the alternate DNS. A RASIPV6ADDR type is identical to a in6_addr structure.

  • dwIPv4InterfaceMetric
    Note  Supported on Windows Vista or later

     

    Sets the metric of the IPv4 stack for this interface.

  • dwIPv6InterfaceMetric
    Note  Supported on Windows Vista or later

     

    Sets the metric of the IPv6 stack for this interface.

  • ipv6addr
    Note  Supported on Windows 7 or later

     

    Specifies the client's IPv6 address negotiated by the server and the client.

  • dwIPv6PrefixLength
    Note  Supported on Windows 7 or later

     

    The length of the IPv6 address prefix in ipv6addr.

  • dwNetworkOutageTime
    Note  Supported on Windows 7 or later

     

    Specifies the amount of time, in minutes, that IKEv2 packets will be retransmitted without a response before the connection is considered lost. Increase this value to support connection persistence during network outages.

Remarks

If the RAS client is using Bandwidth Allocation Protocol (BAP) with server callback, the registry value BapListenTimeout specifies the length of time, in seconds, the client waits for the server to callback. This value is located beneath the registry key:

  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
   SYSTEM
      CurrentControlSet
         Services
            RasMan
               PPP

The BapListenTimeout value is of type REG_DWORD. It can be any number in the range 0 to 0xFFFFFFFF and has a default value of 30.

Windows XP or later: If dwEncryptionType is ET_None, but RASEO_RequireDataEncryption is specified, it is as though dwEncryptionType was ET_Require.

Windows XP or later: The NetBEUI protocol is not supported.

64-bit Windows: The IPX protocol is not supported.
