How do I detect I have stack IP from server after dialing up using the Windows RASAPI.  I dial and connect but need to delay sending web string until I have my IP address from the server.

jw608ems,

Use RasGetProjectionInfo API function to retreive your IP address after you establish the RAS connection, see the following example.

Example
=======
 Private Type RASPPPIP
  dwSize As Long
  dwError As Long
  szIpAddress(15) As Byte
  szServerAddress(15) As Byte
 End Type

 Private Const RASP_PppIp = &H8021&

Private Sub RasGetProjectionInfo()
 Dim lpraspppip As RASPPPIP
 Dim lpcb As Long
 Dim rasprojection As Long
 Dim strIPAddress As String

 rasprojection = RASP_PppIp
 lpraspppip.dwSize = 40
 lpcb = 40
 lngRetcode = RasGetProjectionInfo(lnghRasConn, rasprojection, lpraspppip, lpcb)   'lnghRasConn is RAS connection handle
 If lngRetcode Then
  strIPAddress = "Not Available"
 Else
  strIPAddress = StrConv(lpraspppip.szIpAddress, vbUnicode)
  strIPAddress = Left$(strIPAddress, InStr(strIPAddress, Chr$(0)) - 1)
 End If

 Msgbox "My IP is " & strIPAddress
End Sub
