RASCONNSTATUS info  Overview  Group

A RASCONNSTATUS structure describes the current status of a remote access connection. It is returned by the RasGetConnectStatus function.

typedef struct _RASCONNSTATUS { 

    DWORD         dwSize; 

    RASCONNSTATE  rasconnstate; 

    DWORD         dwError; 

    TCHAR         szDeviceType[RAS_MaxDeviceType + 1]; 

    TCHAR         szDeviceName[RAS_MaxDeviceName + 1]; 




Specifies the structure size, in bytes.
Specifies a RASCONNSTATE enumerator value that indicates the current state of the RasDial connection process; that is, the piece of the RasDial process that is currently executing.

Two state values are especially significant:




Indicates that the connection has been successfully established.


Indicates that the connection has failed.

If nonzero, indicates the reason for failure. The value is one of the error values from the RAS header file or one of ERROR_NOT_ENOUGH_MEMORY or ERROR_INVALID_HANDLE.
A string that specifies the type of the current device, if available. For example, common device types supported by RAS are “modem”, “pad”, “switch”, “isdn”, or “null”.
A string that specifies the name of the current device, if available. This would be the name of the modem ¾ for example, “Hayes Smartmodem 2400”; the name of the PAD, for example “US Sprint”; or the name of a switch device, for example “Racal-Guardata”.
