How to call dialup networking from VB

P: n/a
I want to start the dialup networking dialog from VB6 (under Windows
Vista Ultimate). I assume I should use the Shell command, but I don't
know what to execute. Anyone know how?

TIA,
Martin

I am not sure this is what you looking
for but try executing "telephon.cpl"
in Windows\System32 directory.

I think he's saying he wants to dial out, using the default (or other)
dial-up networking connection.

he said "dialup networking DIALOG" I assume that would be the dialog
If you want to dial out just use the MsComm and you don't have to worry
bringing up a dialog..

Sorry haven't checked this for awhile, but thanks for the posts. What
I meant was that I want to display the dialog that allows the user to
select the username, password, and phone number to dial, and to dial
the number. telephon.cpl is not what I need.
