Configuration for Windows CE 5.0 and 6.0 2017-08-25T16:59:51+00:00

When using Portsmith products with Windows CE 5.0 and 6.0 based devices, there are two settings that can be modified to ensure the best connection experience; Disable PC Connection and Enable Autodial.

Disable PC Connection

By default, Windows CE based devices are set to connect to a Personal Computer.  This will cause them to connect briefly to a Portsmith product, then disconnect when they don’t get the expected response.  This causes a delay in network access as the user must wait for the timeout to occur. Disabling this setting allows the connection to be established without having to wait for the PC connection to fail first. NOTE: To connect to a PC in the  future, you must re-enable this feature.

Disable PC Connection Remove the Check mark from the box labeled “Enable direct connections to the desktop computer” Click OK in the top Right Click ‘X’ to close all other windows. This will now enable network access with your Portsmith product more quickly and reliably.
