    Checking for internet connection

    How can i test if the machine is connected to the internet, without windows prompting the user for a connection?

    starting winsock and trying to connect to some website at port 80 or something similar will prompt.

    I know there's some method to check for active RAS connections, is there a more general method??

    thanks in advance,
