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 ?
