I am using set of TCPIP components to connect to Internet
My app just connects to Net, downloads single html page, then exits. I need to shut down the dial-up connection before exiting my application. Is there any API call or message or something else? I don't wanna set the timeout delay for the connection - I want to shut down the connection programmatically .

Any suggestions? Please, help!

Use the RASAPI function call

RassHangUp(RasCon);

You will need Ras.Pas the Delphi header for the RASAPI.
It is translated by Davide Moretti.

Let me know if you find it. I have a sample app that can call do the calling.

If you want to do the hanging up at shut down use the OnCloseQuery of the Form. HangUp the RasConnection there.
