Hi ,
I am writing a Java application(client) which dials up using the modem and connects to a specified web-site. I guess I should be using Serial Port used in javax.comm. But how do I pass the destination ip address and port number ? There is no example I could find after looking for it for the past one hour.

It would be really helpful to get a working example for this.  

Thanks.

Try looking for a Java PPP implementation.

For example: http://www.jopdesign.com/ejip/

I haven't tried it, but I'm very curious if it works.

If the OS is setup to auto dial then it could handle it for you.

That's what you need: http://www.javaapis.com/jdun/ (but it's not free). It uses native calls so it only works with windows. AFAIK you can't do it in pure Java, so you will have to use the os' capabilities to achieve dial-up.

We created a dialup connection and then ran the Networking Wizard to make it the default connection.  When the application tries to open a socket connection, Windows will automatically dial the modem.
