Windows Mobil Client-Server program RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    currently we have an Blackberry App that receives data from a Server
    via HTTP Push(over the Blackberry-Server) ->
    then the phone represents the data on the screen, so that the Blackberry user can modify the data and send it back via a HTTP-Request to the Server.

    So, we want the same application for Windows Mobil...
    Is this possible?
    What technologies to we need?

    Thanks!

  • Hello,

    but in this case I have to provide a service on the Internet.

    But for me it looks like, it isnt possible do to the server-site without any internet connection.

    I have to host something like an webserevice on the internet and the mobile device communicates with this service.

    thanks!

    But maybe I should explain how the Blackberry Server works.

    So the Blackberry Server is in the Local Network and there are no ports forwarded.

    For example Blackberry Server: 192.168.0.1

    Also there is an Local(!) Webserver: 192.168.0.2, it has no(!) connection to the Internet.

     

    When we want to send something to a Blackberry, we send it to the 192.168.0.1 with the special PIN of the Blackberry.

    When the Blackberry wants to send data back, it makes something like that:

    http://192.168.0.2?data=bla

     

    The point is, there is no server reachable from the Internet.

  • Hi diego2k,

    Do you mean that WM device can't host as a server, since it doesn't provide IIS or related component. We still can use socket, WM can be a socket server. You can try it.
