I'm trying to read data from a serial port on an Ipaq 3630 with Windows CE 3.0 and then transmit the data using UDP (not TCP) protocol to a PC (Windows XP) over the internet vía GPRS, all this in any Visual Basic language.
The problem is:
1. Embedded Viusal Basic Winsock control doesn't accept UDP protocol.
2. I haven't been able to find how to use the winsock API of Windows CE (suposing it accepts UDP protocol) from Visual Basic because apparently it uses a structure (which EVB doesnt accept) to initialice it.
3. Visual Basic .Net for pocket pc platform solves the socket problem but doesn't manage serial communications. I found an class to manage serial communications from EVB.NEt but it doesn't seem to work for a Windows CE 3.0 device.
I'd consider the VB.NET path. It is more powerful and more supported. If you need serial support in VB .NET you can use the Smart Device Framework, open source, from http://www.opennetcf.org/CategoryView.aspx?category=Home.
