How to change Working offline to working online

Hi to all.

I'm working on some application with Visual C++.
I need to download file from ftp server.

I'm using this code:

CInternetSession mysession;
CFtpConnection* pFtpConn = mysession.GetFtpConnection("ftp server", "username", "password");
pFtpConn->GetFile("name of the file", "name of the file", FALSE))

Everything works fine when "Work offline" in Internet explorer is unchecked. (File->Work offline in IE).
but when  work offline is checked  it does't work.

Can I change work offline to work online from my application and how.

I hope you understand my quastion.
Thanks in advance.

Maybe this WinInet API function could be useful:

Notice you have to include "wininet.h" and must link Wininet.lib
You can use it as:

Also you can try with CInternetConnection::SetOption() function member with INTERNET_OPTION_IGNORE_OFFLINE flag.
It will work with IE5 - IE6 only

Now I don't have any error messages, but when I start application I get

Debug Assertion Failed!

dialog with abort , retry, ignore.

Maybe I'm using  CInternetSession::SetOption()  wrong.

code is the same:
CInternetSession mysession;
