A new Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) connection to this server was established. See MSW2KDB
for more details.
The event is logged when a successful RAS connection has been made. Event ID 20159 occurs when we disconnect. 20159 may be logged whenever a RAS connection is broken even by the user not just an error.
<username> is the name of the user that logged on, connected to the remote network. This is not necessarily the same user as the one logged on to the local workstation.
<destination> is the name of the destination, not necessarily the same as the name of the connection.
<%number> On Windows 2000 I noticed that the connection is identified with a percent sign and a number.
<port> com1, COM2 or the like
<%number_dev> same as <%number> but now to identify the device.
<devicename> name of the device.
When you use any type of external connection, like dial up networking, vpn or direct cable connection, this message shows up when the connection was successful. So far I have only seen it on Windows 2000 and XP.
