Starting a dialup netwoking under 3.1
Posted on 1998-06-08
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.
