No-one's posted in here before, so I thought I'd christen it with a good question.

Has anyone dealt with calling the RASHANGUP from with VB.NET and the Compact framework? I'm currently developing an application that needs to connect to the internet. I've tried the OpenNETCF stuff, but it just doesn't seem to work. I know there is a bug in either the CF or WinCE where the connection status is not detected properly. I can verify this by creating a manual connection to GPRS. Then you start IE, and IE can't see the connection and starts up its own connection dialogue. I suspect IE is going straight to the RAS API and would like to duplicate that functionality in my app.

Does anyone have a precompiled class for doing this? PLEASE! NO C#!
