This section contains the following information on Internet
Services for Windows CE:
The Windows CE Internet API (WinInet), is an API used for Internet
client application development. The Wininet.dll module exports
WinInetfunctions used to develop Internet applications like
Web browsers and FTP applications.
Windows CE Web Server:
The Web server provides a way to serve hypertext transfer protocol
(HTTP) documents to an intranet or the Internet. The Web server
applications run on a Windows CE-based computer, sending Hypertext
Markup Language (HTML) pages to a requesting browser. HTML pages
can contain plain HTML, Active Server scripts, Internet Service
extensions, and Internet Service filters.
Sample Windows CE
Telnet Server: This release of the Windows CE operating system
includes a sample telnet server (also referred to as telnetd) which
can be installed on Windows CE devices to allow remote
administration through a standard telnet client.
Using the telnet sample, you can alter Windows CE exactly as if
you were running the command prompt (cmd.exe) on the device itself.
For example, this can be an extremely convenient way to administer
Windows CE devices that do not have displays. You can use any of
the built-in commands for cmd.exe when running telnet, such as
copy, del, and dir. You can also run any executable program that
does not create a Windowed UI through a telnet client.
