    No "Logon using dial-up connection" on Vista login screen

    I was knowing that there was an option to logon using a dial up connection in Windows XP and Windows 2000. I was using this feature to logon to the business network that I was using over a vpn connection and found many advantages to doing it this way. But I am not able to find the same feature in Vista? Can anyone tell me how to get around the same? Thanks.

    I think that you will need to have domain joined machine and VPN connection for all user. Incase you have these 2 then you will see a PLAP button at the right bottom of your login screen that will provide the same functionality.

    Even I am having the same problem like the above user. I have already tried to join the domain at home and connected to the VPN but now if I use a user from the domian then I am not able to see any option to yse a dialup/VPN? Can anyone please help me with this issue? Thanks.

    I was also having same problem but after reading from a post I solved my issue. So, I pressed CTRL ALT DEL to opne the login screen and then pressed "Switch User". After that I got another icon that will appear at the bottom of the screen. Now we have to click that and then our dialup or VPN connections will appear. Select the one that you want to use and then logon normally.
