I just got my 6510 and did so with the sole purpose of being able to access my building controls from anywhere. The program uses a Java ssi login and there was a posting in another forum here last year of people using an Ipaq with netfront to access this exact same software.

So I went out and bought netfront access 3.2 and installed it, but I can still not get to the login screen at the website. I re-read the posting from last year and someone said that the jvm is diabled by default, you need to activate it in the helper screen. But when I go to the helper screen in netfront it overfills the screen and I can only see part of it. I can scroll vertically, but not down far enough to see everything (I can just see the tops of letters for more options at the bottom of the screen) and there is no horizontal scroll bar although the text boxes obviously extend out beyond the screen.

Can anyone help a technologically-challenged person out?

I think the whole problem is that Netfront 3.2 is not compatible with square screens - yet... If you can't see the option to check it, then it won't work for you.

I have found that you are correct - I since downloaded netfront 3.3 and it seems to support square screens as I can fully access/scroll through all screens.

Problem is that I still can not get into my website. It loads in frames and the only frame that loads is the top one with images. The frame that I would normally use to login does not appear.

In the discussion linked below, users were able to access this softare on a handheld. In fact, freitasm - you were one who was able to do so and posted a screenshot of your success.

Yet I can not seem to even come close. Any chance at all that you may be able to help guide me in this?

Thanks - Bob

Yes, I tested that site on Netfront 3.2... Perhaps Netfront 3.3 is different? Really strange though.

I don't have Netfront installed (all my devices are now Windows Mobile 5 and Netfront is still not working on this platform) but if you tap and hold do you have any option to show the page properties? It would be worth checking if the correct page is being loaded and if the frames are loading the correct areas.

OK. I still can not get my login page to fully load. It only loads the top frame. But there are several sites that have demos of this same software. (Google: ccnweb login)

I can access the Carrier CCNWeb demo site and can login. Once in, 3 different frames load and I can move around with the Ipaq. It now seems that the stumbling block is the login screen itself. Mine uses an applet to load tha frame with the uname/pword inputs. On Carrier's demo site, the uname/pword appear to be part of the page and that page does not load in frames. I guess if I can figure out how to get the main page in my version of their software to load without the applet (a JAR I think) then I may be able to do this after all.

Are you aware of any handheld that could do all of this out of the box? I know the Treo can not, but maybe some of the newest phones?

Thanks

Hmm. Not really. I think Netfront is the only browser with Java support - unless you count some third-party JVM, but those do not integrate well with Internet Explorer Mobile for example, they are more likely to execute only standalone JAR files, instead of embedded applets.
