Web Server Application Development for Windows Mobile-based Devices

Send Feedback

The Web Server (HTTPD) is a Windows CE–based HTTP server that facilitates the use of the Internet for communication between a Windows CE–based device and network printers, scanners, and other shared equipment. Web Server applications send Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) pages to a requesting browser. Users only need to have an Internet connection and a browser to be able to make use of the Web Server functionality.

Note   Web Server does not provide proxy services.

The Web Server supports IPv6. For more information about IPv6, see Core Protocols of IPv6 and IPv6 Addressing.

The Web Server for Windows Mobile-based Pocket PCs supports Active Server Pages (ASP) as a standard feature. For more information about ASP, see Active Server Pages Application Development.
