The easist way is to add an OCX control from Catalyst developments 'Socket Tools' {www.catalyst.com} this provides sample code and should be pretty straightforward to implement provided you have VB skills. The MS RAS method is HORRID and hard to follow, we also rejected it because it does NOT work reliably nor disconnect if the calling program crashes or stops unexpectedly.

This question was awarded, but never cleared due to the JSP-500 errors of that time.  It was "stuck" against userID -1 versus the intended expert whom you awarded.  This corrects the problem and the expert will now receive these points; points verified.
