where is the status of the Shared Internet Connection kept?

I connect to the internet with various dial-up connections with WIN2k. I want to share the connection to my LAN. The way to achieve this, is enabling the Shared Property of the Dial-up Connection i use.

My question is: Where is this info kept? Is there any file or any Registry key, which contains the Dial-up Connection which i last chose to be shared over my LAN?

Alternative question: Can i change the Shared Dial-up Connection from one to another by command line, without having to click the enable sharing of the Connection Properties??

Thanks in adnvance!

When I say command line, I mean generally an automatic way, to avoid the clicking...

The answer to the first question gives the answer to the alternative one, too... cause if there is a file or registry key (or something else) which has the info of the sharing connection, then the developing of an application which will change this value is very simple.

Any ideas?

Thanks for the links!

The registry key is:
HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\SharedAccess\Parameters\SharedConnection

Its value is a binary format of the name of the connction which is currently shared...

Keep up good searching, StevenLewis!

Thanks again!
