Default simple TCPIP-Client and Proxy-Server


my simple TCPIP-client works fine on a Pocket PC with connection to the real internet.
It uses the following functions:
socket (), setsockopt (), inet_add (), gethostbyname (), connect ()

Now I want it to work via cradle connected to my desktop pc, which has a connection to a proxy-server on port 8080.

Is this possible?
If yes, what is to change?

Thank you for reply !!!

There is nothing to change. If you have installed the software provided with your XDA for communicating to the Internet through the cradle, it will work as-is.

Watch your IP address through, this will change from that assigned by O2 to, and you connection will become stale at this time, and need restarting.

How you detect the XDA has been put into the cradle or taken out is a problem I have not yet worked out. If anybody knows, I would be extreamly interested in finding out.
