New developer questions


#1

Hi all

I have a windows CE app that I would like to add some WAN communication to beyond Wifi !

We use a company in Bulgaria called Datecs who make a special PDA printer. They have a GPRS option that uses the 2406 chip

Firstly please can somone post a link to the deveopment documentation for this chip

Also what is the basic way to program them ie

You presumeably “open a GPRS connection” - do you then get an IP address back from the Mobile Phone Network provider so you can start a socket session ?

Is it possible to have two 2406 talk directly to each other or do you always both have to talk via a “3rd party” on the internet.

Sorry for the simple questions !

Thanks in advnace for your assistance

Kind Regards

Andrew
