Remote desktop PC with Pocket pc

Guest

I'd like to get some help from someone about how to set up a terminal client or remote desktop with my samsung i700 pocket pc phone running ppc 2002 and my desktop computer running windows XP pro. I use cable modem and its connected to a wired router in my house. I have a built in modem on my ppc phone but it also says that i have network adapters. Its not an external card, might be built in i dont know. Under network adapters this is what it says

Asyncmac1 NDISWAN adapter
NE2000 Compatible Ethernet Driver
PPTP1 NDISWAN adapter

under each of these it gives me the option to go into properties and adjust ip addresses, subnet masks, gateways ect. I dont if these would work. I normal log on to the internet on my phone using the built in modem on it and it dial out using up my cell minutes. But while activesync'd i can also get online using my pc's internet connection. I doesnt use my minutes that way. However i dont know the correct way to access my programs and such on the go, im not sure what i need. when i try to set my pc to recognize the ppc as a user in remote desktop, im not sure what all that stuff about objects is that they ask for and it can't find my ppc. I'm not a TOTAL beginner on computers, I've set up a network of 3 computers and a router at home ect, but this has me really lost. If anyone can please help me.

The generic PocketPC 2002 OS adapters are...

*AsyncMac NDISWAN is the dial up modem driver
*NE2000 is a ethernet NIC driver
*PPTP1 NDISWAN is the VPN adapter

With a mobile device you would normally *NOT* change the TCP/IP settings for these drivers...

To access a XP Pro Remote Desktop session you need to use the built-in Terminal Services Client. I
don't know, however, if it is included in the PocketPC Phone edition OS.

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/resources/support/pocketpc/support_topic.asp?cid=0&tid=15

If its not included then you could try downloading and installing the version from the Microsoft
site...but again I don't know if this will work on a PocketPC Phone edition device.

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/resources/downloads/pocketpc/tsc.mspx

You might consider posting this question to the news
group.

You would configure Remote Desktop normally irregardless of what the client is...

If you need to access Remote Desktop through a firewall/NAT/router make sure TCP Port 3389 is open.

I use TSC on an iPAQ 3835 PocketPC (currently running the Windows Mobile 2003 OS) over my home
wireless LAN or from a remote location through a PPTP VPN tunnel...

Thx all for ur response. I couldn't find the link to ppc newgroup u said but anyhow. I want to know if u think i have to buy wireless wifi card or other kind of card adapter for my ppc with windows mobile 2002. it does have terminal services client on it. but under server i have no idea what to put. I haven't been able to find out information regarding a ppc to desktop connection. What i would like to do ideally is to be in the street eg. and access my files on my computer or run programs. The only option i know to this is verizons wireless sync, but that requires a very expensive monthly charge and it uses my phones built in modem. On my desktop running win xp pro using remote desktop, i dont know how to identity the ppc to the desktop so it recognizes it as having permission to connect via remote desktop or terminal services. If you, Al, or anyone else can help me with this, id be very grateful.

If you configure your news reader to access the "msnews.microsoft.com" server you will full access
to *ALL* Microsoft news groups. Its possible your ISPs news server only handles some of the
microsoft news groups.

If the phone edition device has a CF slot, or a SDIO slot, you could get a CF or SD form factor
802.11b wireless card and use that to access wireless hotspots while traveling, ie. Starbucks,
hotels, etc... I am not familiar with your device so that I why I suggested posting to the other
news group. Note,however, other than the cost of the Verizon connection the 802.11b method is the
same, plus with Verizon I presume you can connect from anywhere, is that not true?

I explained, or I thought, how to setup the desktop for RD in my earlier reply with the links
provided. Is that not sufficient? Call using the public IP, ie. the IP as assigned by your ISP, of
the PC. If its behind a firewall/NAT/router, call using the public IP of the firewall/NAT/router
after making sure that TCP Port 3389 is forwarded/opened.
