 Auto connect GPRS connection on combined PDA+phone

I'm using eVB to write an application which opens a socket to a server on
the internet using the winsock control. But it doesn't seem to automatically
activate the GPRS connection like Pocket IE does. The pda is an HP Jornada
928. The application works fine if the GPRS connection is pre-connected. But
fails if there is no GPRS connection currently running, and doesn't seem to
start the connection up itself.

I've done some searching on the internet but can't find information
regarding this.

Can anyone offer any advice?

Thanks,

James

Hi,
the only way is to either establish a connection manually first, or use RAS.
There are a couple of RAS components out there that should help

Thanks for your reply Pete.

It seems madness that a simple way to activate a RAS connection is
unavailable in eVB as standard.
