Connecting to elk on pocket pc through the internet

I can connect to my Elk M1 from the internet to the virtual keypad in the ethernet interface from PCs so everything is setup. I have a PPC-6700 from sprint that runs windows mobile 5 (or 2003 or something like that). When I try to log onto my system through pocket IE, I am prompted for my password but then the java app never loads.

Is there a way to connect with this device or do I need to purchase ELK-RM?
 
i can't be sure, but i think the elk requires a fairly recent version of java, one that may not be available on mobile 5.
 
Has anyone ever figured this out? I am now using a windows mobile 6 device and it has the same issue. It asks for name and password and then nothing. I can log into homeseer and change things, but it would be nice to go direct to the m1xep....
 
I am using a 6700 with a home loaded version of WM6... I cant get in either. All I get is a blank page... atleast you have the login...

The device must be equipped with the Java Runtime Environment (JRE):

My 3COM Audrey's don't have the oomph to host the JRE and so they cannot be used to display the XEP's Virtual Keypad. One alternative is the M1WebProxy but you'll need a PC to host this tiny application. It serves up pure and simple HTML pages so it can be viewed on most any browser-capable device.
 
Not like I have an Elk, but if this uses JavaScript, try the NetFront browser for PPC.

That looks like a good suggestion. The folks that make netfront need to learn a little marketing though. I have been unable to locate a place to download this software. If you go to their software store it sends you to pocketgear which only has an old version and that version does not run once downloaded. The netfront site does not appear to have any place to download it. I searched for it and can not find anything obvious.

Their website does say it supports java as well as ajax so it sounds good.

Any idea where to get it?

The proxy works well! Unfortunately it only shows status and has no other functionality. But, if you just need to see what is going on this works...
 
The only thing I saw was the Technology Preview 4, did you see/get that one? It expires in Feb tho...
 
You will have to have the Java Runtime form Sun Micro as listed above. Many PDA's or telephones can not run that software. We are working on getting rid of Java.

I and my stable of 3COM Audreys send Elk's engineers our thanks!

Of course, if the JRE requirement is supplanted by .NET Framework Compact Edition ... well then, my Audreys (running the QNX OS) will continue to be excluded from the party ... :)


I'm asking for a lot here but maybe the XEP can have two modes of operation:

"Simple mode"
where the interface is all-text rendered with nothing more sophisticated than HTML 3.0.

"Advanced mode"
where the interface is rendered with whatever web technology Elk chooses for maximum visual impact.

Maybe Advanced Mode is accessible from one set of ports (2101/2601) and Simple Mode from another set (2201/2701) or the mode is negotiated by browser type/capabilities?

Thanks for the update Spanky...so the version of the netfront browser mentioned above that seems to support some type of java will not work?

Thanks...
