ActiveSync, Ethernet & Windows CE
Posted on 2006-11-24
I am desparate to find out how to use ActiveSync with an Ethernet connection.
I have a server with a SQL database (MSDE) on it that will copy XML files to a Windows CE 5.0 device whenever the SQL database is updated. It is not a handheld, but a security device (Unitech MR650). I also have another PC that is requires access to the device in order to retrieve an image file of it.
As users are updated in the SQL database, an XML file is copied onto the CE device - this is used to store PIN numbers specific users to allow other functionality on the CE device.
The CE device is capable of communicating with this other PC, and when it does, the computer requires the ability to retrieve a JPG file (basically, someone pushes a button to call reception, and then a photo is taken and then sent to the receptionists computer).
How can I get the Server PC with the SQL database and the Receptionist's PC to copy files to or retrieve files from the CE device via Ethernet?
I would like to have both computers connected at the same time? Is that possible?
Many thanks all...
