HI

I’m straggling to initialize the system dialup connection if the pocket pc is not connected inside my code.

I want to open a connection to the web on my Pocket pc and test the connection then initialize the dailup connection if the device can not connect; how do I go about doing this?
I’m using pocket pc 2002 and C#.

I have used:       MyRequest = WebRequest.Create(“http://.......”)
            MyResponce = MyRequest.GetResponse()
to check if I can open the web page.

I will be very grateful for any help on this subject.

Thank you Vanish, this is a very helpful and interesting article and I think it will come in use someday. I want to use a pre-setup connection setup on the device. By using MyRequest = WebRequest.Create(“http://.......”); MyResponce = MyRequest.GetResponse();
I can make the connection but it uses the default connection (or the last connection you used) on the device I thought that there is a easy way to get a list of the connection that has already been setup and just call it by it setup name or set the default connection inside my project.

Thanks for the help!

try this..

HttpWebRequest request;
HttpWebResponse response;
bool isConnected = false;

try
{
  request = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(targetAddress);
  response = (HttpWebResponse)request.GetResponse();
  request.Abort();

  // success?
  if(response.StatusCode == HttpStatusCode.OK)
  {
    isConnected = true;
  }
}
catch(WebException we)
{
  isConnected = false;
}
catch(Exception ex)
{
  isConnected = false;
}
return isConnected;
}

And look at here..
