I have a Windows Mobile Device and want to make a local htm web page that detects if a server on the intranet is online or not. This is to tell if it is inside the WiFi area or not. I am using Pocket HPH as a local PHP and web server on the device but the PHP functions are very limited and cannot use fsockopen() and curl() is quite limited. I am thinking of using javascript. Opera Mobile 10 will be used as the main Web Browser on the device.
