I'm trying to communicate between desktop PC and Windows CE 5.0 device connected by usb (cradle).

I feel like I'm missing something obvious, because I can't find how to establish connection between them. What namespace to look? I just want simple communication: connect, exchange some data, disconnect. Sockets are more then enough, but what address should I access? The one assigned by usb connection on handheld is not accessible on desktop machine.

Communication should be initiated from desktop PC.
My handheld is running Windows CE 5.0 with .NET Compact Framework 2.0

Please point me to the right direction :)

Maybe take a look at the rapi.dll and see if it does what you need, you need to p/invoke the methodes.
