  • 1. H1910 running slow on gprs
    Hi all I have a h1910 and a nokia 6310i on grps, I used the ppcw website to set-up the connection. The connection to orange is fine if I use wap settings but don't get any pages, if I use the orangeinternet settings the unit seems to lock for a while and go to a pre dial-up screen and does nothing but run slow. Can anyone help Thanks Glenn
  • 2. Free VPN client anyone?
    Has anyone managed to find a VPN client out there for WM2003 (or, I should say, one that supports WM2003)? I have taken a look at Movian, but Certicom has made it an absolute pain to demo/buy their product... plus I'm just not feeling 45 bucks for a client...it seems a bit OUTRAGEOUS. I need something that's compatible with a Cisco VPN 3000 Concentrator and supports Group Access/Authentication (I will be using IPsec). -Brad P.S. I love my 2210, but the one thing I've learned is if you want the functionality you dreamed of before you got your shiny new handheld, you're going to have to spend 300 bucks in extra hardware and another 600 in extra software. Microsoft really doesn't do you too many favors...
  • 3. PocketPC 2002 -- using IMAP with Pocket Outlook
    Hi, I've tried setting up my Pocket Outlook on PocketPC 2002 with an IMAP account I use. It seems to work for the most part -- I can send and receive email. But a few things don't work quite right: 1. The "Sent Items" folder on my PocketPC doesn't seem to map to my "Sent Items" folder on the IMAP server. The IMAP server is Cyrus and I know that doesn't do folder hierarchies the same way an Exchange server does... 2. When I delete a message on the PocketPC, the message is not deleted via IMAP on the next sync. The message just comes back at the next sync. And if I move a message to another folder on the PocketPC, the change only happens locally even after sync. If I do either of these things via my desktop, the PocketPC picks up the change, of course. Any thoughts? Thanks
  • 4. Pocket Expense PowerToy
    I've loaded the Pocket Expense PowerToy and have entered data for evaluation purposes. I always seem to get a duplicate of the program installed. After a few tries the Programs folder will have: Pocket Expense Pocket Expense (2) Pocket Expense (3) . . . and so on I'm not sure what's causing this. I can remove Pocket Expense with the normal remove programs functionality but the duplicates do not show up as programs that can be removed. I like what I see with the software but the duplication is frustrating. Has anyone else experienced this with PPC2003 on an Axim? Gary
  • 5. Activesync does not detect that the connection is broken
    What happens is that when I remove my PPC from the cradle, Activesync does not detect that the connection is broken. It just hangs. I put back the PPC and it still hangs. I've to open the taskmanager and kills the 2 task. Then restart Activesync. I've been using ActiveSync and I didn't have this problem before. Lately, I've installed a few new applications and then it happened. I stopped all the apps and it still happens. I've reistall and it still happens. Anyone with a solution ? Thanks.

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,

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
