Hi

I have an application which automates online activities. I now want to leave it unattended which means:

1) It will dial up each morning and get online
2) I can check for a live connection before passing automation controls to a collection of IEs (done, thanx Richie)
3) Automatically log back in if a connection has been dropped.

How is this done ? I suspect it is easy I just don't have the information at my fingertips

Regards

Stewart

Here you'll find a complete DUN-Module (modDUN.bas):
http://w3.one.net/~kevinw/VB/s_modules.htm

"Allows full, low-level access to the Dial-Up Networking (DUN) components on your computer as well as information about Remote Access Server (RAS) connections.  This module also allows you to create and hang-up connections to the internet or a remote server behind the schenes so that the user never has to interact with dialogs."

HTH.
