    Connecting the the internet

    I would like to make a program that connect to the internet, but i can't find out how to do so.

    i figured out how the program would run, but i dont know how to actually dial out.

    Heres how i planned it:

    on first running:
    get the host name (aol, infoave, etc);
    get the number;
    get the user password;

    then make a file with the information, connect, when connected, output the modems command things, like connected to host <hostname> etc, and recording that to a file for troubleshooting.

    On second run, get the information from the file, if any errors, reenter;

    do the same thing.

    But for now i just want to connect to the internment and disconnect. can i do that in console mode?

    Thanks in advance

    I'm assuming you're on windows, so try this link http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&i....microsoft.com
    In short, STFW.

    Then you should check out some low-level hardware communication stuff, wich may or may not work depending on your kernel. Still, search msdn. Something will come up.

    try looking at this website http://www.codeproject.com/internet/

    if I'm not mistaken, I found a source codes to create a dial-up connection quite some time ago. Maybe you could surf around and get an idea out of it.
