Was it that ras.h can't be found or there'e a compile error in it?
If the latter, what's the error?

"error C2065: RasGetConnectionStastics Undeclared identifier"

I have included the "ras.h" file , the MSDN documentation says that this API is declared in ras.h, but i am getting this error on compile time.
Please suggest

Bingo.

That routine is not in the VC6 RAS.H, but is in the VC7 RAS.H.

I found it in these two files:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET\Vc7\PlatformSDK\Include\Ras.h
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET\Vc7\PlatformSDK\Include\prerelease\Ras.h


Here's its declaration:

DWORD APIENTRY RasGetConnectionStatistics(HRASCONN hRasConn,RAS_STATS *lpStatistics);


typedef struct _RAS_STATS
{
    DWORD   dwSize;
    DWORD   dwBytesXmited;
    DWORD   dwBytesRcved;
    DWORD   dwFramesXmited;
    DWORD   dwFramesRcved;
    DWORD   dwCrcErr;
    DWORD   dwTimeoutErr;
    DWORD   dwAlignmentErr;
    DWORD   dwHardwareOverrunErr;
    DWORD   dwFramingErr;
    DWORD   dwBufferOverrunErr;
    DWORD   dwCompressionRatioIn;
    DWORD   dwCompressionRatioOut;
    DWORD   dwBps;
    DWORD   dwConnectDuration;

} RAS_STATS, *PRAS_STATS;
