I think it's going to be hard to code in VB.NET. Anyway, here are some tips :

You could import the RAS structures in VB.NET, and then you'll have to do the following :

Configure a simple RAS connections with RasCreateEntry,
Then write some registry entries on your client platform :
   - For configuring dial strings parameters (Key Dial\Locations or something like this)
   - For configuring the APN programmatically (in the DevCfg structure)

The username/password will be coded in your RASENTRY structure because there are fields for that.



I would suggest you to code in C/C++ under Embedded Visual C++ 4.0 (.NET) and try to download Platform Builder trial edition because there are VERY GOOD SAMPLES for doing that in it ;)
