Serial port passthrough? (Handheld --> PC) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all,

    I'm wondering if anyone here has heard of a solution to fit my dilemma: I need to pipe data from a COM port on my Windows Mobile device to a virtual COM port on my PC (running Windows Vista). The two are connected via ActiveSync. I've seen a lot of software that deals in multiplexing COM ports on WM devices themselves, but I haven't had any luck finding one that actually "clones" a Windows Mobile serial port and sends its data to a PC. Any ideas?


    Thanks in advance,

    Matt

  • Hi Matt,

    Does your device connect with PC via COM port? can you elaborate on it?  If you just connect via normal USB. I don't think we can send data between them via serial port. Instead, we can use RAPI to send data between PC and PDA if they are connected.

    If you are working with managed code, Opennetcf wrap RAPI, see here:
