TCP/IP Application Development
This section describes how the Windows Embedded CE operating system (OS) implements Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP). Microsoft TCP/IP protocol suite is examined from the bottom up. Network traces are used to illustrate key concepts. These traces were gathered and formatted using Microsoft Network Monitor 2.0, a software-based protocol tracing and analysis tool included with Microsoft Systems Management Server. This material is intended for network engineers and support professionals who are already familiar with TCP/IP.
The Windows Mobile OS includes a standards-based TCP/IP stack, allowing Windows Mobile devices to participate as peers and servers on local area networks (LANs) and remote networks.
Shows the characteristics and services that TCP/IP provides in Windows Embedded CE.
Describes how TCP/IP fits into the architecture that Windows Embedded CE uses to communicate.
Describes the core protocol stack, which includes Address Resolution Protocol, Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP), and Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP). Duplicate IP address detection, multihoming, Classless Interdomain Routing (CIDR), managing IPv4 routes, Transmission Control Protocol (TCP), User Datagram Protocol (UDP), and host name resolution are also discussed.
Describes how IPv4 addresses are assigned to a device. It also describes how to assign a device name, manually configure an address, and use DHCP to automatically configure and address.
Describes the NDIS interface that TCP/IP uses to communicate with network card drivers.
Describes how the Windows Mobile implements IPv6.
Describes how you can configure Dynamic Name Service (DNS), Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP), and Internet Protocol Helper (IP Helper) programming elements.
Describes the Windows Sockets (Winsock) interfaces. Applications access the TCP/IP stack through the Winsock interface.
Provides general best practices for TCP/IP.
Presents security information for TCP/IP and security best practices.
Describes how you can configure the TCP/IP registry.
Describes the dual protocol stack that supports 32-bit IPv4 addresses and 128-bit IPv6 addresses. Windows CE .NET 4.1 and later supports this dual stack.
Describes how applications access the TCP/IP stack through the Windows Sockets (Winsock) interface.
