This code sample is named SocketApp. It demonstrates the use of Windows Sockets to communicate with a mobile device. First, SocketApp uses Remote API (RAPI) interfaces to get the mobile device's IP address through ActiveSync. Second, SocketApp sends a "hello" string to the mobile device, and then listens for the mobile device to respond.
