This device communicates with application in computer via TCP or UDP protocol. I have sample program written in cpp which works OK as server, but, I want to write my own application.
Has anybody experience with UDP transmission? How to start?

Regards, Marek

Marek,

Is there a manual that comes with the Newland NQuire202P?
Maybe there are some samples programs which could be adepted to HMG...?

Greetings, Serge

As far as I can see, It's a linux ARM device.
I would go for an intranet html5 app and install a web brower on the unit.
Probably you would need a linux hacker to configure the unit to suit your needs due its small amount of memory.

This unit is configurable via web browser. It's attached working sample app, which acts as server.rice checker sends read barcode to this app via udp, and app sends info about product to checker.
But, as I found in manual, there is a slot for microsd card, and, after installing memory card, this device can work off-line.
I can place sources of this server-app in .cpp.
If sb. Can translate it to harbour, it would be great help to me!
