How can I connect two PDA's to a one mobile database via bluetooth RRS feed

  • Question

  • I got two PDA's and I have a application to track the attendance for a seminar and therefore I have to use one database rather than having two database in both PDAs. Can I have a bluetooth connection to do this? if yes, how can I write the connection string? 
    Can anyone help me please?

  • Where do you intend to put the database? If database is on a Windows server, it would be much more convenient to use TCP/IP (via Wifi or GPRS, etc.). The two PDA can connect to the same SQL Server database by specifying the IP address of the server.

    If you want to place the database on one PDA and access it from the other one, using bluetooth would be fine though a lot more work would be involved. Here are some resources about bluetooth development on Windows Mobile/CE:
