I am developing 16 bit application using MSVC1.52, this application is based on TCP/IP and it meant to be a client front end that connect to a server which is an NT based application that uses RAS services (based on TCP/IP).

The problem I am having is that I want to know:
- how to call from either 3.1 and 95 the server via modem? is there any Winsock function or other library I need to do this.
I've browsed in the internet and I find that most of the tips point to Wininet which comes with IE4, well As you can see my requirements is very simple and i dont want to install IE4 into the clients computer just to get this working!!

- What dlls I need to ship with my applications to make the TCP/IP and the dialupnetworking works under 3.1.

- Is it possible to configure by code the TCP/IP and dialup networking so the client doesnt bother to set them up?

NOTE: although my applivcation is based on TCP/IP (because the serverend is based on TCP/IP) there is no need for the client to be connected to the internet, all these dlls and configuration I asked for a purely needed to make my application to connect to the server.

You can use Trumpet to active WINSOCK. You make a modem connection, user authentication, when you finish all and receive PPP (or SPLIP) transaction, you call Trumpet (tcpip.exe) and  can use winsock.dll libraries normally.

Is it possible to start trumpet dialer via code (C/C++) or an API without having the trumpet dialer window coming up on the screen. Is it possible to do the same when hanging up.
