Hello.  

I need to create a comm initiator between any pc and a specific server.  I know I need both modules on the server and any pc, but first, I think I must detect any modem or nic TCP/IP settings in the pc to start making it.  Could you please help me in the process of getting both modules running.  If you have any link, it will be really appreciated.  

Thanks in advance for your support.

Mynor.

All you need to do is try to open the type of connection you need, if the connection fails, you don't have an internet connection. You don't need to detect any settings per se.

Ok, thank you.  Could you please tell me which directives to use for that purpose?

But let's say, you already have a modem or a nic, but you don't have the internet connection already configured.  My goal is to configure that profile and create a protocol for that purpose.

Thanks.

Then you're only option is to use native code (C/C++) via JNI. There are no such provisions available in Java.
