When you use a demand-dial interface in Routing and Remote Access Service (RRAS) for Microsoft Windows NT version 4.0, it fails to use the dialing properties that are normally used in Dial-Up Networking. For example, you may have your dialing properties set to always dial a 9 to access an outside line, or *70 to turn off call waiting. When you dial a demand-dial interface, those properties are not used.
Demand-dial interfaces in Routing and Remote Access do not use telephony dialing properties. Normal Dial-Up Networking connections do use telephony dialing properties. You can configure your telephony dialing properties by double-clicking Modems in Control Panel.
Manually enter any dialing strings you normally use directly into the phone number field for your demand-dial interfaces. For example, if you have your dialing properties set to always dial a 9 to access an outside line, you need to add a 9 to the beginning of your phone number; for example 9xxx- xxxx.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Routing and Remote Access Service for Windows NT version 4.0. We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.
