Hi, I am trying to run a .net CF 2.0 application in the windows CE 5.0 emulator to work with a .Net 2.0 web service hosted on my local development PC. Now, I can use Internet Explorer in the windows CE emulator to gain access to the Internet, but I just can not see my local web service or Intranet thought the emulator. I have tried to configure Network connection setting in the emulator, however not got any luck so far, could anyone give me some advices or instructions.

Thanks in advance

Are you trying to use ¡°localhost¡± to access it If so it won¡¯t work. Your local development PC" is in fact not local from emulator's point of view.

Hi, I am not using localhost as name, instead I am using my computer's name as Http://myPC/MyServices

Can you ping this server Can you do a port scan Does firewall allows for connections Is proxy configuration correct (e.g. bypass proxy for local addresses)

Hi, I am using full web service URL address like http://myPC/myservice/service.asmx. But how can I ping the server, there is no command prompt in windows CE emulator. I have disables my firewall and I am not using "Access the Internet using a proxy server".

You might be able to install and use vxUtils tool to ping/scan ports. It is for Pocket PC but should run on CE 5 in ARM emulator. Also, can you access same URL from IE on emulator Have you cradled the emulator or have you configured virtual network adapter
