Windows Mobile to Zebra Printer over WLAN (ad hoc)
I have an Intermec (CN3) Windows Mobile 5.0 device and a Zebra P4T printer.
The printer does not have blue tooth.
But the printer does have wireless capabilities that can be configured from a PC. http://j.imagehost.org/0665/printer_network_config.png
The working environment does not have a wireless network that we can take advantage of.
We are writing a .NET Compact Framework application that will run on the Intermec device and print to the Zebra printer over a wireless connection.
What device configurations should allow us to do this?
What kind of network-establishing code will my application need to connect to the printer?
I do not have a lot of experience with networking. I can look up the SDKs and APIs that Intermec and Windows Mobile provides, but I am not sure what I am looking for. If you can even provide pseudo-code of the overall plan on how to establish this kind of connection, it would be appreciated.
Zebra provides a WinMobile SDK for printing from a WinMobile device to a zebra printer. There is good documentation provided, and several demo apps which give you all the code you need to connect to a Zebra Printer over TCP, and send/receive data from your printer
