I'm working under WindowsCE/ PocketPC, but if anyone knows how to do this on a PC, then I would be interested in an answer. Basicly, I'm working on a utility that performs file transfers, and requires an internet connection. How do I check that there is a valid and active internet connection (if the user is already logged on), and if not, how do I call the "Establish Connection" dialog, so that the machine can dial the phone number, log on, etc...?

concerning the other questions, under linux with dialups you can use ipppd ippp0 i think. As for broadband, you have to reinitialize your network connection, don t ask me for the command line option.
