NetDial Control

Properties   Methods   Events   Configuration Settings   Errors  

The NetDial control can be used to call the Remote Access System (RAS) to initiate or break connections to remote hosts, list connections, and phonebook entries.

Syntax

NetDial

Remarks

The user can either directly provide a PhoneNumber, User, Password, and optionally a Domain and CallbackNumber, or get those entries from PhonebookEntry of Phonebook. The calls are blocking but progress information is given through the Status event and Windows messages will come during connect or disconnect methods.

The user can get information on the phonebook entries and connections by calling the respective methods of the control. ConnectedEntry and PhonebookEntry events will fire with the required information.

Support is also provided for creating and/or deleting phonebook entries, as well as listing the various RAS devices supported by the system.

Configuration Settings (NetDial Control)

The control accepts one or more of the following configuration settings. Configuration settings are similar in functionality to properties, but they are rarely used. In order to avoid "polluting" the property namespace of the control, access to these internal properties is provided through the Config method.

NetDial Configuration Settings

IgnoreModemSpeaker:   Whether the control will ignore the default modem speaker settings.

Setting this value to True will cause the control to ignore the modem speaker settings in the RAS phone book, and uses the setting specified by SetModemSpeaker. If it is False, the control uses the modem speaker setting that is in the RAS phone book, and ignores the setting specified by the SetModemSpeaker.

IgnoreSoftwareCompression:   Whether the control will ignore the default software compression settings.

If set to True, the control ignores the software compression setting that is in the RAS phone book, and uses the setting specified by SetSoftwareCompression. If set to False, the control uses the software compression setting that is in the RAS phone book, and ignores the setting specified by SetSoftwareCompression.

OverrideEntrySetting:   Whether or not to use the control settings when dialing a phone book entry.

If set to True, the control will use PhoneNumber, CallBackNumber, User, Password, and Domain as specified in the control if set, instead of the value specified in the pre-existing phone book entry.

PausedStates:   Whether the control will accept paused states.

If set to True, the control will accept paused states. Paused states include terminal mode, retry logon, change password, set callback number, and EAP authentication. If set to False, the control will report a fatal error if it enters a paused state.

PauseOnScript:   Tells the control to display a logon terminal.

This value is used internally by the system for Windows-95-style logon script execution. If True, a logon-script will be displayed in a terminal window visible to the user. Applications should not set value.

SetModemSpeaker:   Whether the control will use the modem speaker.

This config value determines whether or not the modem speaker will sound during a connection. If IgnoreModemSpeaker is False, the control ignores the value of SetModemSpeaker, and sets the modem speaker based on the RAS phone-book setting or the default setting.

SetSoftwareCompression:   Whether the control will use software compression.

This config value determines whether or not the control uses software compression for the modem connection. If IgnoreSoftwareCompression is False, the control ignores the value of SetSoftwareCompression, and sets the software compression state based on the RAS phone-book setting or the default setting.

UseCustomScripting:   Tells the control to use custom script DLLs.

Specifies that the control should invoke a custom-scripting DLL after establishing the connection to the server. the control can only invoke the DLL if all of the following conditions are met: UseCustomScripting is specifically set to True. A custom-scripting DLL is correctly registered with the system. The CustomScript option is specified in the phone-book entry. Note: this option is not supported in Windows 2000 and NT.

UsePrefixSuffix:   Whether or not to use the dialing prefix and suffix in the phone book.

If set to True, the control will use the prefix and suffix that are stored in the RAS phone book. If False, the control will ignore the prefix and suffix.

UseRemoteDefaultGateway:   Whether or not the entry should use the default gateway on the remote network.

UseRemoteDefaultGateway is used when creating a new entry. By default, this value is true and tells the entry created that it should forward data that cannot be sent on the local network to the dial-up connection.

NOTE: This option is only valid when a local area network connection and dial-up connection both exist simultaneously.

VPNType:   Sets the VPN Type when creating entries with NetDial.

The supported values include the following:

0 VPN_DEFAULT
1 VPN_PPTP
2 VPN_L2TP
3 VPN_SSTP

NOTE: This is only available in .NET
