Controlling a PC from a PDA, using Bluetooth

Postby Andy Mabbett » Thu, 26 Aug 2004 02:49:07 GMT

I'd like to be able to control my PC remotely (well, from across the
house!) using Bluetooth; to be bale to start and stop applications, and
so on.

What do I need? A version of VNC?

Andy,

In the microsoft.public.pocketpc group, there is a thread "Connecting as if 
right in front of the PC".  Read that thread as it will probably answer the 
vast majority of your questions.

Thanks,

Thanks. It's in:

But no, it doesn't tell me how to use Bluetooth to do what I want to do,
(my desktop has Win2K).

VNC is definitely the way to go. I have been using it with
an IPAA 2215 Bluetooth, and a WINXP Machine with a Bluetooth Dongle
No problems at all

Which flavor of VNC are you using?  I also have an HP 2215 and would love to
do this.
TIA

4.Problem with using a control in my COM control

Hi,
I downloaded and installed the easyInk control from the Odysee website.
After I right click on the dialog and select insert "ActiveX Control" I 
select the PPC2002 ARM easyInk.ocx.
Then I get "Failed to find desktop version of control in registry. 
Please verify that this control has been successfully registered on the 
desktop."

I know that I have to register the Win32 version of this control to 
place it on the dialog.
As far as I can tell the Installer is supposed to do this, I did a 
regsvr32 on the easyink.ocx too.

There is a version of this ocx in C:\WINDOWS\system32 and I have a 
registry node in 
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{4D17496D-7DA3-11D4-9270-00105AA9A07C}

Is there some other place eVC 3.0 looks for the Win32 version of the 
control?

What I noticed now is that a directory called "Registered Activex 
Controls" appears in the explorer (at the same level as the harddrives) 
if I click on Project/Add To Project/Components and Controls.

This one contains lots of entries, including the easyInk control.
The directory in eVC (C:\Programme\Microsoft eMbedded 
Tools\Common\EVC\Gallery\Registered ActiveX Controls) is empty though.

5.remote control of PC with PDA (pcAnywhere style) ?

Is there any software available that allows me to remote control my PC with
my Pocket PC ?

I would like to be able start/run specific software on my PC/server and be
able to view/verify the PC's desktop on what programs currently run, stop
them, open them etc.
Pretty much the basic functions that Symantec's pcAnywhere allows. Symantec
unfortunately discontinued their WinCE version.
Transfer of files is something I have working through the Pocket PC File
Explorer, so that function is not absolutelty necessary.
I only need the control on my home/small office WLAN network only , so I
imagine there probably will be a (more) simple solution.

Any suggestions on what software to use (both on PC/server and Pocket PC)
and how to set-up this access/control.

Btw, I use a IPAQ 5550 using PPC 2003 with built in WLAN and the PC/server
runs WinXP home edition with BuffaloTech AirStation.

Thanks for any advice.

Cheers
