DWORD RasGetConnectStatusA(
  HRASCONN         ,



Specifies the remote access connection for which to retrieve the status. This handle must have been obtained from RasDial or RasEnumConnections.


Pointer to the RASCONNSTATUS structure that, on output, receives the status information.

On input, set the dwSize member of the structure to sizeof(RASCONNSTATUS) in order to identify the version of the structure being passed.

Return Value

If the function succeeds, the return value is ERROR_SUCCESS.

If the function fails, the return value is one of the following error codes or a value from Routing and Remote Access Error Codes or Winerror.h.

The function could not allocate sufficient memory to complete the operation.


The return value for RasGetConnectStatus is not necessarily equal to the value of the dwError member of the RASCONNSTATUS structure returned by RasGetConnectStatus. The return value of RasGetConnectStatus indicates errors that occur during the RasGetConnectStatus function call, whereas the dwError member indicates errors that prevented the connection from being established.
