Hi..
I need to create a program that check whether the computer has a connection to the internet or not.
If not, the program should dial the default connection.
Do some stuff.. and then disconnect it.
Assumption:
- Windows NT/2000/XP
- modem is on and ready to use
- has a valid internet account.
many thanks...

I think you can try for any existing connection by opening a URLConnection to a site for example. But for opening the dialupscreen, you will have to write some native code. I think it will be worth to search for existing code for this particular problem, I know a lot of application, for example a e-mail application wants to have such funcionality.
Yours,
Mark Monster

Hi..
thanks for ur reply.
I know about ur idea, but it's under assumption that the URL that we're trying to connect is not down.
Isn't that right ?
