How to connect to another device such as handheld, or printer by WI-FI? RRS feed

  • Question

  • HI,

    I am not sure if this is the way that it should work.

    We are trying to develop a program on handheld, to connect to a printer by WI-FI to do printing. Is this doable? Both my handheld and printer support 802.11 WLAN. Normally, in my home computer, we need to have a WLAN adapter as a network access point in order to let my laptop connect to internet. In the handheld case, will handheld be a role like the adapter?

    And also, is there any sample code to detect the printer, and connect to the printer or other handheld device?

  • Look into a third party app called PrintBoy (I believe version 7 is the latest).  Hopefully that is what you are looking for.
