If you are connected "via LAN" how you can do "HangUp"?
You are disconnected till a 1. programm from your computer will send a request to a remote computer or
2. programm from remote computer will send a request to your computer.

If you want to prevent case 2 then you need some kind of firewall.

May be there is a way to close handles that are created and used by the WinINet functions ( any Internet handle or subtree of handles of the type HINTERNET) and free any associated resources with InternetCloseHandle(). ...just a thought!

neshkov,
            Use TClientSocket & TServerSocket. Write a server application to be run on the PC with the modem that can connect/disconnect to the internet. The client application can then be used to remotely connect/disconnect the modem. I use this at my home to disconnect a LAN modem.

for the socket source code.

http://www.kyler.com/pubs/ddj9855.php 
for the RAS source code. (Just add a TServerSocket).

Regards
Paul.
