Hi there,
I have successfully created a dial up connection with Modem on COM1 using the c++ RasSetEntryProperties method.
My problem is that I have to be then able to set the 'Flow Control' of this connection to 'Software control' without any user interaction?
There does not seem to be any documentation stating how to achieve this.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

You could try set the modem settings in the registry!
from the documentation..

Modem registry keys are stored under the following key.


Each installed modem uses one registry key; additional subkeys, which contain AT commands that Windows CE uses to initialize and dial the modem, plus other entries that communication and modem drivers use.

i guess you have to change the settings under the modem key..

FlowHard AT\Q3<cr>  [Enable hardware flow control.]
FlowSoft AT\Q1<cr>  [Enable software flow control.]
FlowOff  AT\Q<cr>   [Disable all flow control.]
Hope this shd work.
