Sorry, I've been gone a LONG time. Been developing Event Sinks for a new IT company. Now I'm their head network engineer! (FINALLY!) So, I've just reviewed all the updates...
Yes, bluetooth is a possibility. Here's the catch, in order to use bluetooth, you need to set it up as a peer2peer network. That's easy to do. However, bluetooth only travels so far. I believe class 3 BT has a 33Ft distance, and class 1 has a 300ft distance, but I could be backwards on my classes. However, you can imagine that the BT in your laptop or PDA is the 33ft class. There are, however, routers that have the 300ft range bt. You can use that if you wanted as your link.
VNC isn't really that secure, but you'd need to know specifics to get in. However, if someone knew your netbios name of your carputer, they'd be able to get in. This is why I perfer to write my own code. That way you don't have to worry about other people with the same idea. However, VNC is used as remote desktop software, where as I perfer to send short txt msgs over the network for low bandwidth usage. Especially if you plan to stream A/V over to the PDA, you're going to need that bandwidth. For me, I'll be placing a camera in my car that moves on a tilt/pan stand so I can see what's going on around my car... I'm very paranoid. Like-wise, you can use it for other streams.
I must have just dug this topic up.

Looks like new... Wanna know why they call me "Crash"?
Im just fixing up my ol ipaq 3660 with new batteries at the moment... Does anyone have a working IPAQ-PC vnc connection going like <Question> at the moment via usb/serial? The reason i need this i cause i dont have any BT/WiFi on my IPAQ.
Hope to see sone good news here!
I'm using a direct connection through the serial port. The VNC connection really has nothing to do with the network in my case. You don't any type of network connection.Originally Posted by Magnezium
However, I could see problems arising if you used bluetooth...but since this isn't my case, I have no idea.
MITE I SUGGEST BEMUSED (BEMUSED.COM) it works with winamp but im trying 2 get it working woth frodoplayer if it can b used. it works well with sony ericson p800 & MS powerpoint
I dunno why but it just worx sumhow
thats the programs like this one:
work with ad-hoc or only let say AP to usb network adpater,I just don't feel like having a AP in my car(to many things in the car already)
P.S: to Magnezium:
Did you finally make that soft and are you releasing it or you looking to make profit out it......
eww...so I had tested my palm with my computer while connected to my network...I finally put the computer in the car and realized it won't work since there is no network to assign an ip address to the computer. I can't even set one manually since winxp says "Media disconnected"
...so this may have derailed the vnc effort, unless someone can tell me a good way to trick windows into giving itself an ip address without being connected to anything. (or wiring up some kind of trick cable...) Any ideas?
