Hi.
I just want to know how i can connect to the internet, without showing the dialup dialog. I have password, username and all the other stuff.
I know it has something with RAS to do.
Please show me how to do it.

Another means is to simply try pinging a few fast, reliable host (www.hotmail.com, www.yahoo.com, etc.).  If at least one of them don't time out you're connected.  I mention this because, and i could be wrong, I don't think that RAS provides any means of checking for connections that aren't dial up based.

Try this:

function Online(var Modem, LAN, Proxy: Boolean): Boolean; //Testet: Internet connection vorhanden
var
    flags: Cardinal;
begin
    Result:=InternetGetConnectedState(@flags,0);
    Modem:=flags and INTERNET_CONNECTION_MODEM>0;
    LAN:=flags and INTERNET_CONNECTION_LAN>0;
    Proxy:=flags and INTERNET_CONNECTION_PROXY>0;
end;

It will return TRUE when the computer is connected to the internet, and will always report what the connection methos is (Modem, LAN, Proxy).

Dennis, thanks for accepting my comment. Note that, since an internet connection may be over a LAN (NAT or PROXY) or different DUN interfaces, the best way is to have the system dial the connection whenever it is needed. The function I provided will allow you to know whether the connection is already established ot not.
