Debugging RAS functions while PocketPC is connected via ActiveSync

I wrote an application that uses GPRS connection to connect my Pocket Pc to the internet.
Launching and debugging is done via ActiveSync.

The problem - Once ActiveSync is connected, I can't use or debug the Ras functions.  Also, no internet communications received via the RAS connection.

My configuration:
PC Side:
Win XP
ActiveSync 4.5

PocketPc side:
Windows CE 5.0
Cellular modem connected to Com1 (serial)

Thanks

Eli

try to check "Allow wireless connections..." checkbox in AS Connection settings
besides, check what's defined in Start->Settings->Connections->Connections->Advanced->Networks
for Internet

Hi Alexey

"Allow wireless connections..." is already checked.
Where can I find "Start->Settings->Connections->Connections->Advanced->Networks
for Internet" on my platform?  

Thanks

that's exactly as it's written - look on PDA, Start->Settings->...
the wording may be not 100% correct after the last "Connections" part, but you'll see it immediately

besides, try also select Work in "This computer is connected to" combo in AS settings, so it doesn't attempt to provide internet access

Hi Alexey

I'm using Windows CE device.  
I can see the following:
Start->Settings->Network and Dial-Up Connections->My Connections
In the connections profile there isn't a way to configure the IP.

Any idea?

Thanks

Eli

hmm, ok.
are there any means to select that you're ISP is connected to either Work, Internet, etc?
you need to try such kind of setting, that tells Windows what network to use for given host or IP address

I see...  You mean the dialer

I do have it.  It's either on automatic or manual dialing, no matter which one.  The application is dialing (including authentication and modem LEDs) but no internet on the browser.  In this case I switched the source of the browser to "MyConnection".  No "Networks for Internet" there.

Thanks for your help so far

Eli

no, I don't mean the dialer itself :)

it's already few years since I've touched WinCE device (not Windows Mobile), so my memories of UI are a bit faded :)

Anyway, I better illustrate what I mean by attaching 2 screenshots from WM device to give you some idea what to look for.
