    Post VNC help

    Well,
    I downloaded VNC for windows 9x and windows ce. I installed it on my 9x machine and transfered the windows ce viewer over to my Hp 320 lx running windows ce 2.0 . Now, How the heck do I get these two to communicate. I know vnc operates through tcp/ip. Right now all I have is the usb to serial adapter. the usb plugs into my hp 320 and then connects to the serial port of my desktop. I also have a 28.8 pmcia modem. Is there a way to make either of these cables work to conenct via tcp/ip. Or am I going to have to buy a LAN card for this to make it work?

    You can try using the serial cable. However you will need to run a proxy on the target computer.
    www.dalecoffings.com has a how-to on this.

    Also if you dial into the target machine that should work too because of "dial-up networking".

    I would think that you would have to get a LAN card.....D-Link makes a good USB ethernet adapter that you can get for around $30

    A proxy has nothing at all to do with it. When you connect your CE machine to your desktop, it uses IP adddresses in the 198.0.0.0 class. All you need to do is find out the IP on your desktop. You can try running "ROUTE PRINT" at the command prompt, or look it up on the Net. Either way, when connecting a CE machine to your desktop, the "serial port" on the desktop gets an IP address. Find that address and you can do anything you normally can over TCP/IP.

    I'm not too familiar with VNC, but I do a similar thing with my HP Jornada 420 for use with Citrix. Here is what I needed to do to get TCP/IP apps working. In a nutshell, what you need to do is change the way your ActiveSync works. (Hopefully you're using ActiveSync 3.1) In your connection settings disable the "Allow serial cable..." and "Allow USB...", then enable the "Allow network (Ethernet)...". Then you need to create in INCOMING RAS connection to your computer that uses the serial port you have your CE device connected to. Make sure you assign your incoming connections some sort of an IP Address. Once thats done plug your CE device into it's cradle and see if it connects (it should). Now both your CE device and your computer have IP addresses. Use the VNC viewer to connect to the IP address of your PC.

    (WHEW!) I hope you can follow all that. If not email me and I'll see if I can get some screen captures of my setup that I use on my laptop.

    Cool

    This is only relavent under NT. In Win98/95, all you have to do is load ActiveSync and set the proper options. For VNC, you will still need to disconver the IP of the desktop.

    Anny sugestions for similar setup on a palm.

    I dont think it uses a ip on the serial port.... I saw some software that allowed a tcp/ip over serial ocnnection , but I could never get it to work with vnc.

    When I use VNC, I put in the computer name, not ip address. It works just fine that way on my LAN.
