    Problem with RoadRunner, Phoco and Hibernation

    I realize that this is a Phoco problem but please help me out.

    Phoco fails to connect to the COM port coming back from Hibernation. It will keep getting timeout and eventually stop trying.

    However, if I close Road Runner (and thereby closing Phoco), then restart RR (and Phoco), then it'll work.

    Is it possible for me, from RR, to restart Phoco without having to restart RR?

    Appreciate if anyone has a solution to this problem.

    Seems to me like if that's consistent (always does it), then we should close Phoco before hibernating and restart it after resuming. I never had this problem, and likely to never have it since I got a "smart" phone that can't handle any GSM commands needed for Phoco to work.. really "dumb" phone in my opinion.. just a warning for all of you out there.. as far as I know ALL pocket pc phones based on windows mobile (any version so far), do not support the GSM command set and will not work with phoco.

    yes, guino, it always does it. Is there a command in RR that can close and restart Phoco? I read through Skin Commands but couldn't find it.

    G, that's not true. I have an MPX220 which is a Windows "smart" phone (I think) and it works..

    I have the SMT5600 and read on the forums that it was now supported in the latest version. Which phone do you have? I was so close to getting phoco...

    Guino, it is confirmed with me as well. Coming out of hibernation everytime PhoCo won't reconnect in RR unless I close RR and reopen.

    Thanks!

    That's cool.. at least some do work with it.. wondering why my windows mobile 5 phone doesnt support the GSM commands..

    Regards to hibernation/resume.. I heard that it is normal for phoco to take a few minutes before it actually reconnects to the phone, so you may just not be giving it enough time ? if it doesn't come back within say 10 minutes, than it might be something to ask Robby_BMW to look at..

    guino, Phoco will connect right away after hibernation but it will stop trying after 5 timed-out attemps. I already confirmed this with Zorro.

    I think what we need is for RR to have a skin command that 1) shuts down Phoco, and 2) restarts it and reconnects to it. Something like a "hard" restart so we won't have to close and restart RR.

    I'd appreciate it if you or Robby can add this to the next release.
