Default Direct WiFi Access w/out BIS/BES

Please Login to Remove!

I have found the connect string required for your appplication to access the network directly over WiFi instead of having to tunnel over BIS/BES as is the default on the 8320 :

Append the following to your connection :

;DeviceSide=True;ConnectionUID=S TCP-WiFi;ConnectionSetup=delayed;retrynocontext=true

I haven't seen this actually documented anywhere so hopefully this is useful to others. This is useful as I am currently getting 2.5X the performance this way when doing file transfers. Your application will need to dynamically probe in this case to see if WiFi is actually available in order to prevent the application from only working in WiFi mode.

Cheers.

Default Thanks!

Thanks for posting this! Appending this string to my host:port in MidpSSH let me use my private WiFi network without punching holes in the firewall!

Wheres this go? is it something compiled into an app or does it go externally somewhere meaning it can be added to other apps without recompilation?

Does anyone know where to make these changes ?

Thanks,
Mak


EDIT: Found it .. this needs to go after the line where you input the server IP address for the application. Nice find kit and thanks for sharing

You can just run through the service book on the wifi device and call getUid() get the value dynamically...
