How to Add a CEPC to an Ethernet Network (Windows CE 5.0)
You can add a CEPC to an Ethernet network to evaluate the networking capabilities of the Windows CE operating system (OS) running on the CEPC.
The steps required to network a CEPC vary according to the networking hardware that you set up for the CEPC. You can connect the CEPC to a network through a dedicated product Ethernet card installed on the CEPC. Alternatively, you can connect the CEPC to the network with the same Ethernet card that you use either to download a Windows CE run-time image to the CEPC or to debug the CEPC. If the VMINI Ethernet sharing library is included in the Windows CE OS, both debugging and application traffic can travel over a single Ethernet connection. For more information about the VMINI Ethernet sharing library, see Ethernet Debugging Services.
If you use a debug Ethernet card to connect to the network, you should be aware that a debug Ethernet card requires specific settings for IRQ and I/O base address. For information about the settings required for a debug Ethernet card, see Editing the Autoexec.bat File for an x86 SDB.
To track your progress in the following table, select the check box next to each step.
|1. Select and install on the CEPC any PCI or ISA Ethernet card that is NE2000 or SMC9000 compatible. Consult the vendor for your Ethernet card about NE2000 and SMC9000 compatibility.||Not applicable|
|2. Create a boot floppy disk for the CEPC and modify the Autoexec.bat file on the boot floppy disk to recognize the Ethernet card.||Creating a Boot Floppy Disk for an x86 SDB|
|3. Connect an Ethernet cable from the product Ethernet card on the CEPC to a hub on the network.
If you want to connect the CEPC to the network with the same Ethernet card that you use for downloading or debugging, then you do not need to make a second connection.
|4. Configure the Microsoft HyperTerminal accessory application to display the serial debug output from the CEPC.||Configuring HyperTerminal for BSPs|
|5. Include support for Ethernet networking.||Building a CEPC Run-Time Image for Use with an Ethernet Card|
|6. If the CEPC has both a debug Ethernet card and a product Ethernet card installed, disable the VMINI Ethernet sharing library.||Configuring Multiple Ethernet Cards for a CEPC|
|7. Configure a connection between the development workstation and the CEPC.||Configuring an Ethernet Remote Connection|
|8. Download and boot a run-time image on the CEPC.||Downloading a Run-Time Image|
|9. Access the network from the CEPC. You can, for example, ping a device on the network, or configure a Web browser to display information from the network.||Not applicable|
|10. Discover and resolve any problems with the connection from the CEPC to the network.||Troubleshooting: Cannot Connect from a CEPC to a Network After Configuring the CEPC|
