Opening a Connection to an IAP

Extended Connection Preferences API can be used by applications to set the preferred Internet Access Point (IAP) prior to establishing a connection.


Specifying IAP ID enables the applications to start a connection to a specific IAP. The application acquires a connection to the requested IAP, regardless of the existing connections.


  1. Connect to socket server .

    RSocketServ ss;
  2. Open a RConnection object.

    RConnection conn;
    conn.Open( ss );
  3. Create a connection preference list and extended connection preferences object.

    TConnPrefList prefList;
    TExtendedConnPref preferences;   
  4. Define the IAP using TExtendedConnPref::SetIapId().

    preferences.SetIapId( 8 );
  5. Append extended connection preferences into connection preference list.

    prefList.AppendL( &preferences );
  6. Start a connection with connection preferences.

    conn.Start( prefList );


The application is connected to the specified IAP.
