Connecting to a Target Device Over an Existing Named Connection (Windows CE 5.0)
In a named connection, you can store settings required to download a run-time image to a target device or to establish a kernel-level connection to the target device. For more information, see Creating a Named Connection.
With Platform Builder, you can create multiple named connections. The following procedure shows you how to load the settings for a named connection that you stored previously, and then, how to use those settings to connect to a target device.
To connect to a device over an existing named connection
- From the Target menu, choose Connectivity Options.
- From the Target Device box, choose the named connection that you created.
- Verify that the settings for the named connection match the settings that you stored previously, and then choose Apply.
- From the Target menu, choose Attach Device.
If you want Platform Builder to download a run-time image to the target device before connecting the development workstation to the target device, the target device must send a BOOTME message to the development workstation.
