How do I change a windows setting with code?

How do I change a windows setting with code?

Does anyone know how to, in Visual basic code, do the same action as clicking on the tick boxes that sets either "No caller access" or "Allow caller access" in the Windows Dial-Up Server dialog box in My Computer, Dial up Networking, Connections.
I have a remote computer at an information kiosk that normally has "allow caller access" so that I can update info from a remote head office. It is normally 'listening'.
When someone touches the screen I want him to be able to use the modem and line to dial out and talk to a real person on the end of a telephone via the audio feature of the modem using a small loudspeaker phone.
It all works either as one or the other but the VB coms says the port is in use unless I  switch the allow caller access off manually before using the telephone.
I want to be able to change this function in code or by some other method.
Is there some sort of script language like an old dos.bat that could be run from a shell or an API that would do it?

Also maybe there is a way to do it using a macro or something?
