I am currently trying to make a GPRS connection from an Intermec Pocket PC 2003 device, connecting via the serial port on the cradle.
Intermec have informed me that to connect this way with any serial modem (they have not used this specific modem) you should simply do the following:
- Go to Start->Settings->Connections->Connections
- Tap “Add a new modem connection” under My ISP
- Enter a name then select “Hayes Compatible on COM1:” and tap Next
- Enter phone number as *99# and tap Next
- Enter username & password (& domain if required) as specified by network operator
- Tap Advanced…
- Select baud rate. This is typically 115200 for a modem connected via serial port.
- Enter following dial string, replacing “your.apn.here” with APN as specified by network operator. Note there is no leading AT.
- Default port settings are 8-N-1 with h/w flow control. This is typically what is requried, but check with modem manual.
- Also TCP/IP and Servers are left as default (dynamic) but can be set if required
- Tap OK to close Advanced settings, then tap Finish to save connection.
However, this does not work. (Unable to connect for an unknown reason dialog).
- Are these modems Hayes Compatible?
- Are there drivers available for PPC that I am missing?
- Has anyone successfully used one of these modems with PPC?
Our supplier has suggested that we write our own firmware for the modems, which is a route we don’t want to go down.
