The command to connect is:

dbus-send --type=method_call --system --dest=com.nokia.icd /com/nokia/icd com.nokia.icd.connect string:$NET uint32:0

where $NET is the network name (that appears in the connect dialog)
before diablo, and network id since diablo.

You can find the network id by running:

gconftool-2 -R /system/osso/connectivity/IAP

Or (if you have egrep installed):
gconftool-2 -R /system/osso/connectivity/IAP | egrep IAP\|name

If you want to disconnect, the command is:
dbus-send --system --dest=com.nokia.icd /com/nokia/icd_ui com.nokia.icd_ui.disconnect boolean:true
