I haven't done this myself, but you can take a look at using the WMI providers from Microsoft:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms180606.aspx

If you follow some links through, you will eventually find this:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/microsoft.sqlserver.management.smo.wmi.managedcomputer(SQL.90).aspx

Per this document, client protocols and connection settings are in the list of WMI accessible items.
