Anyone have a C++ example of RasEnumConnections implementation?  Also, how would you iterate through the returned connections to see if the connection you are trying to make is already connected?

Do you have to include any headers other than:
ras.h and raserror.h?

I've been trying this but I always get the default: state even when I'm connected.  Any suggestions?

You have no "break;" in your "case:" statements!!!!!

switch( ConnectionStatus.rasconnstate )
{
case RASCS_Connected:
m_IAmConnected = TRUE;            
break;

//dial-up failed
case RASCS_Disconnected:
m_IAmConnected = FALSE;
break;

default:
m_IAmConnected = FALSE;
}
