RAS problem

I'm having a problem to establish a dial-up connection while using this code. The state goes 'opening port', 'port opened', 'connecting device', 'disconnecting', with error=630 'closing due to hardware failure'. When I just click on the connection, it connects normaly. The code is located in a dll, just in case it's relevant.

---------------------------
#include "general.h"
#include <ras.h>
CDataQueue NotifyQueue;
HRASCONN connection=0;
char szdunLastError[256];


//Executed in the main thread
void
dunNotifyAll(LONG notifycode)
{
      while(!NotifyQueue.IsEmpty())
      {
            LONG address=0;
            NotifyQueue.Get(&address, 4);
            CDUNNotify *nt=(CDUNNotify*)address;
            if(nt!=NULL) nt->NotifyDUN(notifycode);
      }
}

//Callback function for RASDial.
void
dunNotifyStateChanged(UINT uMsg, RASCONNSTATE state, DWORD dwError)
{
      
      //Store error string so it can be later retrieved by dunGetError()
      if(dwError)
      {
            RASCONNSTATUS status;
            status.dwSize = sizeof(status);
            RasGetConnectStatus(connection, &status);
            
            RasGetErrorString(dwError, szdunLastError, sizeof(szdunLastError));
            RasHangUp(connection);
            
            //Notify all that an error has occured. Extened error information can be retrieved with dunGetError()
            dunNotifyAll(ERR_GENERAL);
            return;
      }

      //If connection established succesfully
      if(state==RASCS_Connected)
      {
            dunNotifyAll(ERR_SUCCESS);
      }
}


//Asynchronically starts a connection
void
dunConnect(CDUNNotify *object)
{
      //Get dial-up entry value
      CString strDUN=iniGet("DUNEntry", "LAN");
      
      //If it's 'LAN', no need to connect, notify right away, and exit
      if(strDUN=="LAN")
      {
            object->NotifyDUN(ERR_SUCCESS);
            return;
      }
      
      //Add notification client
      LONG address = (LONG)object;
      NotifyQueue.Append(&address, 4);

      //If there are no ongoing dialup, this is the only request from this dll
      if(NotifyQueue.GetSize()==4)
      {
            //dial
            RASDIALPARAMS params;
            CLEAN(&params);
            params.dwSize = sizeof(RASDIALPARAMS);
            strcpy(params.szEntryName, strDUN);
            int nResult = RasDial(NULL, NULL, &params, 0, &dunNotifyStateChanged, &connection);
            
            //If error occured, callback won't be called, so call it right away
            if(nResult!=0) dunNotifyStateChanged(0, (RASCONNSTATE)0, nResult);
      }
}


//Disconnect
void
dunDisconnect()
{
      RasHangUp(connection);
}


//Terminates the connection in case it was established by the application
void
dunCleanUp()
{
      if(connection!=0) dunDisconnect();
}


void
dunGetError(char *buf)
{
      strcpy(buf, szdunLastError);      
}

Callback functions must be defined as WINAPI:



void WINAPI dunNotifyStateChanged(...

You have to:
1) Declare the callback function as WINAPI:  

void WINAPI dunNotifyStateChanged(...

2) Probably, provide the user name/password.

In other respects, your code works fine.
The test program is below.

The problem can be also in NotifyQueue and dunNotifyAll().
Try to comment these lines out.


#include <windows.h>
#include <ras.h>
#include <iostream.h>
#include <conio.h>

//CDataQueue NotifyQueue;

HRASCONN connection=0;
char szdunLastError[256];


//Callback function for RASDial.
void WINAPI
dunNotifyStateChanged(UINT uMsg, RASCONNSTATE state, DWORD dwError)
{

   //Store error string so it can be later retrieved by dunGetError()
   if(dwError) {
      RASCONNSTATUS status;
      status.dwSize = sizeof(status);
      RasGetConnectStatus(connection, &status);

      RasGetErrorString(dwError, szdunLastError, sizeof(szdunLastError));
      RasHangUp(connection);
      cout<<"Callback: ERROR "<<dwError<<endl;
      return;
   }

   cout<<state<<endl;

   //If connection established succesfully
   if(state==RASCS_Connected)
   {
      cout<<"Callback: CONNECTED"<<endl;
   }

}


//Asynchronically starts a connection
void
dunConnect()
{

   RASDIALPARAMS params;
   memset(&params,0,sizeof(params));
   params.dwSize = sizeof(RASDIALPARAMS);
   strcpy(params.szEntryName,"User");
   strcpy(params.szUserName,"Password");
   strcpy(params.szPassword,"HaTf432");
   DWORD nResult = RasDial(NULL, NULL, &params, 0,
      &dunNotifyStateChanged, &connection);
   
   if(nResult) cout<<"Unable to dial"<<endl;
}


//Disconnect
void
dunDisconnect()
{
RasHangUp(connection);
}


void main(void) {
   dunConnect();
   _getch();
   dunDisconnect() ;
}
