Java application for GPRS connection

P: 3
I need to manage the GPRS connection (set up the connection, connect
and disconnect) in a symbol handheld device with Windows Mobile 5. I'm
developing this application with Java 1.3 and using IBM J9 as jvm. How
can I deal with this?

Many Thanks

If you can use ordinary sockets for the connection there won't be any problem
I guess.

Thanks for your quick reply Jos,
I think I can use sockets for my connection but I can't figure out what will be the host and port I should create the socket. I only need this connection to synchronize data in a local db. I've got a sim card on my device: should the host depend on the mobile phone company I'm using?

Thanks

The handheld device is the 'host'; it hosts a service for others: the clients. I
don't know which port you are supposed to use; there is a manual of some sort
that tells you about these prerequisites isn't there?

I've got the handheld device's technical details but it's just an hardware specification. How is it possible to link the socket to the gprs connection available in Windows Mobile 5?
