D4 / w98 app nolonger autodials under XP pro

In '98 (?) I wrote a D4 app which allowed us to rebuild our website via a series of automated ftp puts [using tNMftp etc - site provider was having weekly server problems]. The trusty old w98 machine that was used for this recently died and was replaced by a xp pro box. It used to be that when the app was invoked, if a connection to the net didn't already exist, it would autodial one. Now on xp, if there is already a dialup connection, the app works fine, but if there isn't one it nolonger autodials one. Is there a xp settings type of fix for this, or should have the code all along used RAS api instead of relying on the autodialing that worked so well for 5+ years?

many thanks,
greg

does the auto-dialin work if you use a ftp-program ?
does the auto-dial work, if you start your browser
(and don't have a connection yet) ?
This way you could check if your xp-machine is setup correctly
