Hi,
I have an imate KJam and am trying to install and run a personal FTP client on the device. I want to trigger this FTP client from an application on the Desktop. I realised that when i am connected over ActiveSync to the ppc phone GPRS is not functional.

Is there a way i can do activesync and connect to the device as well as be able to make a GPRS connection at the same time?

Regards,
Sanjay.

This is not possible. When connected to ActiveSync all network operations will be routed through that interface.

Hi M,

Not possible. am in deep trouble then..

i mean, i saw in an MSDN forum where somebody said it is possible to do activesync to a smartphone device (o2 dev i think) over bluetooth and have GPRS work simultaneously.

I know am being naive about expecting the same to work. It would be great if u could suggest a way.

I would be interested to know how this person managed to monitor the connection and find out that some stuff is going through ActiveSync and some through GPRS.

I guess if the GPRS connection is not closed (but only disabled for the outgoing connections) incoming connections would be ok - which seems to be what you are wanting.

It should be easy to test: just find out what's the IP address for the GPRS connection on this Pockt PC (using VxUtil for example) and then try connecting to it.

i guess i would need the outbound GPRS to be functional as well.

looks like i need to look for an alternative to the GPRS connection here.

thanks for the reply.
