Status modem

I am programming in windows 2000 OS.  I have a bunch of modems on my computer and I want to be able to check to see which modems (or how many modems) are available to dial out on (RASDIAL()).

    I want to be able to tell two different states of the modem.  
State1 : (not ready to dail)
if a modem is turned off (I have external modems), is dialing, or is connected --

State 2: (ready to Dial) if a modem is available to Dial out.

I have tried RasEnumConnections and RasGetConnectStatus, but these only tell me how many modems are configured for my system and how many are conected. I need to be able to tell if one of the modems is available to dail a number.

Any help would be great! Thank you.

What about 'RasEnumDevices()'?

I also tried RasEnumDevices.... All it gives me is the name and buffer size...  I use it to determine how many modem devices I have.  

I am able to figure out how many modems are currently connected. (device amount - currently connected) should give me the correct number, but if a device is pending or is turned off I won't be able to tell and may try to dail. For that case is there a way to tell if the modem has a dail tone or is in ready state (with out actually trying to dail)

Dear jalgazi

I think you forgot this question. I will ask Community Support to close it unless you finalize it within 7 days. You can always request to keep this question open. But remember, experts can only help you if you provide feedback to their questions.
Unless there is objection or further activity,  I will suggest to

     "refund the points and PAQ at zero points"

since nobody had a satisfying answer for you.

PLEASE DO NOT ACCEPT THIS COMMENT AS AN ANSWER!

I really didn't look at the timestamp of griessh's comment. My cry for help was posted 05/26/2002 and that's certainly more than 7 days away. If you go through the other C++ questions I posted you will notice that I accepted any help.
