Pocket pc development

Hi.
I am new developer in the .net world, i have a project to implement a pocket
pc's application, it will be a smart client application, it will have its own
sql ce database and from time to time it will need to connect to a central
sql database server for database updates.
First of all, how can i connect the client application to the server?
Also, do i need a server application between the client and the database
server?
Thx for ur concern.

Web services.

server?
Web services are hosted in IS, so no.

Thx Ludwig.
Sorry i am somehow new to distributed client server applications, so u told
me that web services are a way to connect the client application to the
database server, but i dont know a lot about web services yet, so how do i
implement a web service? and isnt a web service a server application?
and cant i connect my client application directly to the database server?
Thx again.
Philip.
