    Post Controlling a pc using a plam top ce device

    Hello everyone!


    Well I know this has been covered using the pc anywhere for ce. But, on my hp 320 lx I can not for the life of me get ce anywhere to work. I was wondering if there is anything out there like http://www.giantdisc.com/ but for windows ce instead? A program that conencts to a computer via and the pc is used to played mp3s and controlled via the handheld device. Anyone heard of such a project? Check out <A HREF="http://www.giantdisc.com/!!!

    Cool

    Use VNC instead. See http://www.uk.research.att.com/vnc/ for info.

    With a windows CE machine you can use the webbrowser to run giantdisc. Set up a proxy on the serial port and open Pocket IE. Done deal...should work great.

    I have not tried it. I would need a nic and a PC with the software on it.
    However I don't see why it wouldn't work.

    Also I looked at the scripts....it should be fairly easy (for someone with programming expirence) to make a CE version of giantdisk.

    Do we have any takers? (should be easy to impliment with embedded VB)

    I use palm amp.

    I have looked at vnc.But I cant get it working verry well over the serial port.

    I also have some software called pebbles PC http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~pebbles/

    They all do verry similar things.
    Except palmamp is really a customized interface to winamp.
