5 out of 5 stars 23-May 2005 by Larry H using Dell Axim X50
I just wanted a way to efficently monitor my kids while they were on the PC using wifi and my x50v at home. I'm using the trial version and it works great. I'm sure this program does alot more, but that is much more than I need for the price. I wish there was a scaled down version for basic home use that only cost $10-$12. Any way, I really like how fast the screen updates to the PPC.

Fantastic remote control for your PC! Works very fast, and the zoom and color depth controls make it easy to cope with low-bandwidth situations. Setup is a breeze, and file transfers are as easy as copy & paste. Very well done!

One Star One Star One Star One Star One Star Excellent piece of software 
A reviewer from UK, April 30, 2005
"I've tried some similar products which were confusing to install and in the end failed to work at all. This is an excellent piece of software, after installing the app, I set up my username/password and I was away. I can view my whole 1280*1024 desktop landscape on my vga pocket pc. Refresh rate is fantastic on my wifi connection. Buy it now."

Ira B. from Rockville Centre, NY, March 19, 2005
"I tried two other popular Remote PDA to PC program and z2 RemotePC2 has the best resolution, screen refreash rate, file transfer, controls/settings and it seems to be designed to work with the most popular PC OS Windows XP. It works great with my HP hx4705 and my Win XP desktops and laptop. It was exactly what I needed and what I was looking for."

"No other product comes close. Been running it on IPAQ HX2750 wireless; and even via bluetooth connection speed is acceptable. Sessions can be encrypted and color depth adjusted to requirements. Extremely stable, and a pleasure to use. Thanks guys"

Wow, great application. Pretty straight forward set up. Using an XDA 2 on O2 in the UK, Windows Mobile 2003, with Sandisk SDIO WiFi. No problems connecting to my home network, can view, and transfer files, even create folders and move files onto my PC from my PDA. The only thing I have not been able to do, which is the only negative for me is being able to play MP3 tracks from the LAN. They show in File Explorer ok, and I can copy and paste etc. but they wont play ? Still great product none the less.

5 Stars here !!! This is a great little app. No problems what so ever on my Dell Axim w/ Dell CF Wireless 802.11 Card. We need more great apps like this one for Pocket PC.

"I purchased PocketLan to trouble shoot my network, it was prefect tool to help me trouble shoot network and mapping issues, also it helps me with router issues, a MUST HAVE for all POcket PPC that want to browse the network!"


One Star One Star One Star One Star One Star Does exactly what it promises to do. 

MichaelD from Melbourne, Australia, February 6, 2004
"I had a simple idea - to use a Pocket PC as a media player, with the files kept on a desktop PC acting as a server. Sounds easy enough? Well, it isn't. Firstly, there was the grief of configuring my new iPAQ 4150 to access my Wireless LAN. That particular Everest was conquered. I could see the shared files via File Explorer by manually entering the path to the server and the files. Sadly, Windows Media Player stubbornly was not interested in finding media files anywhere but on the Pocket PC. I tried many, many solutions; alternative media players on the Pocket PC, streaming audio from the server, File Explorer replacements. All attempts were unsuccessful...until I found PocketLAN.

It adds Network functionality to the Pocket PC that really should be built into the operating system, but isn't. Installation was essentially straightforward, albeit quite tricky compared to other Pocket PC programmes. Nonetheless, the instructions are clear and accurate as to the steps required. I had one glitch during installation - after the required soft reset of my Pocket PC, I lost network connectivity until I realized that the wireless LAN had turned itself off when I reset the device.

In use, the program is truly excellent. It does exactly what it promises to do - makes network shared files available to the Pocket PC - and it does it well and efficiently. I'm over the moon with this application and highly recommend it as THE solution for anyone that wants to access files on a server rather than having to copy them to their Pocket PC every time they want to use them. I'm using it at present to access a large media library on my server and also to access digital photos - the iPAQ makes a great digital audio player and a great picture viewer. The enhanced functionality of simple and straightforward network access is truly a pleasure."
