Network Tools for your Handheld
As you will have discovered, the network tools supplied with a standard Windows Mobile are somewhat lacking. Those of you with a Pocket PC with a built in wireless network card, or have bought the required hardware to support one will find this particularly disappointing. Therefore third party developers have stepped in to give you the tools and resources you need to:
IP Config (For DHCP use)
This page gives you links to some of those resources.
Be aware that not all of these tools work on Windows Mobile 5.0 and as such are used at your own risk.
Internet/Network Testing Tools
Once you have got a network connection, you may want to test it with some of the standard network testing tools, like Ping, Whois, Tracert etc.. To do this you will need another tool.
Net Use (Connect to Network Drives)
If you want to connect to shared/network drives then you will need another tool. This application works in a similar way to "Net Use" on Windows NT, 2000 and XP systems. It seems to have disappeared from the developer's web site, so we are making it available here.
If you do not have internal name resolution (such as internal DNS or WINS servers), then you may need to use a Hosts file to connect to other machines on your network. This will allow you to sync over the network and connect to shared network folders.
Other Networking Projects for Your Handheld - elsewhere on this site
There are quite a few things that you can do with a networked handheld. Elsewhere on this site you will find:
