Networking – How much do you know ?


I was talking with one of the Windows CE Networking Test guys today, the plan was to chat over a hot, steaming, cup of Starbucks Vanilla Latte, but something had tripped out in our buildings Cafe, so the coffee counter was closed :O(


Anyhow, back to the blog post – How much do you know about Windows CE networking ? – For example, why would someone implement IPV6 over IPV4 in their device, what is a transport layer, and what can you do with it ? – how compatible are NDIS drivers with the desktop NDIS model ? – What is L2TP and IPSEC, and why would you include these in your Windows CE Embedded device ? – What about power management, and the list goes on…


So, the real question is, how much do you know about Windows CE networking, and how much would you want to know about Windows CE networking ?

  1. For example, why would someone implement IPV6 over IPV4 in their device. I know.

    What is a transport layer? I know.

    What can you do with it? I know.

    How compatible are NDIS drivers with the desktop NDIS model ? Don’t know what NDIS is.

    What is L2TP and IPSEC, and why would you include these in your Windows CE Embedded device ? I don’t know.

    What about power management. I know.

    And the list goes on… Tell me more, don’t stop there.

    I’d be more than interested in this topic.

    Yes, I would be interested in knowing a LOT more about this subject. I already know most of the terms you threw out as I have had a strong interest in networking since 1970.

    We are creating a headless CE 5.0 design which will be heavily dependent on web interface for the configuration and operator interface. I also am concerned about security as it will be connected to industrial networks which may not have good firewalls.
