Look at the WIN32 RasDial() and related functions.

The RasDial() needs a phonebook entry or at least a phonenumber to dial, but as I'd like
to use an already established connection like a Null-modem cable or modems simply
connected, are these API useable ? Or should I "emulate" a modem response
to AT commands on the server side ?
thank you anyway

Sorry I did'nt notice that it was a serialline. On NT you can install a special serial line modem, but for 95/98 I dont know.

There is a app included with 95/98 that can make a connection between two PC's, maby it is possible to launch this (using CreateProcess()) from within you program.

You certainly think of the "direct cable connection" app, but
what I need is to establish a PPP link other the serial line
with any kind of host, not running windows.
