Internet Sharing via USB Between 2 WM6.5 devices RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,
    We have a WM6.5 phone. When we connect this phone to the Windows XP laptop
    via USB, it detects that a new USB device as "Generic RNDIS " and sets up a
    network adapter "Windows Mobile-based Internet Sharing device".
    Now using the WM6.5 phone modem, we are able to browse in the laptop.

    We are trying to enable the WM6.5 classic device as GPRS enabled one by
    connecting WM6.5 Phone device. Similary is it possible to connect from WM6.5
    Classic device to the WM6.5 phone device using Internet Sharing option? For
    this what all settings or sysgen/components has to be included in the WM6.5
    Classic device.

    Thanks for your inputs.

  • Hi Csbabu,

    In my opinion, WM6.5 classic should have the component to browser PC shared folder. If we open File Explorer software, we can see "Menu" menu, click it---Go to----Open path--New path, where we can input a network folder, like \\server\\shared. I am afraid yo don't set the emulator network properly. Please refer to the FAQ:
    How to make a device emulator connect to the internet?

  • Hi saravana,

    As far as I know, Windows Mobile platform doesn't support folder or file internet sharing. If we want to sharing file, we can use socket to send file.

  • Hi Guang,

    Thanks for your  response. But i am not trying to share file/folder.

    All i want is using the WM6.5 Phone device GSM modem, GPRS browsing on non phone terminals.

    When we connect the WM6.5 Phone terminal to laptop, we are able to browse the internet.

    Same is not possible with the WM6.5Classic non phone device.

    What are the sysgen/components has to be included in the WM6.5 to achieve this?

     

    Awaiting your reply.

     

    Thanks,
