Email through cradle?

17 posts in this topic

Posted

tried searching for the answer on this one but didn't get very far.

I've got the phone set so I can browse the web through my lan when it's connected to the cradle, but if I try and sync email it uses GPRS - anyway to get it to use the lan via cradle?

Thanks

I am a IT network analyst for a job. the only thing that is confusing me is how is the phone picking up a gateway or a ip address in order to access the web?

Any ideas?

Still can't do it ... the web here requires a proxy, which i entered on setup. I'll try again at home where no proxy is required.

Turn radio off if you need proof its not connecting to anything other than passthrough, maybe that will force your emails to use passthrough to!

The phone (presumably throught the active sync sw) acts as an application on your pc - using the network settings on your pc.

This doesnt appear to apply to proxies etc - its possible to create a proxy in network connections (to connect from work network to internet) - and if you set your desktop to connect to corporate network then it will attempt to use your proxy settings... though I just get error 400 invlid request from the ISA server at our work...

Its not connecting through your sim. It is connecting through activesync and using your pc connection whether it be lan or dial up. So no you are not using orange therefore it is not coming off your monthly bundle.

This is particularly good with bluetooth through a BT serial connection if you laptop has broadband. ( On an ipaq that is) You can sit within 10 m of your laptop and surf instantly.
