I'm currently reading Steve's Pocket PC Network Programming, not finished it yet, but like what I see so far, the connection manager section will come in useful, I haven't tried it out yet, but it seems like it should solve an existing PocketHTTP problem where it tries to make a socket connection (and fails) before the tcp/ip stack is happy (and I've heard reports that under PocketPC 2003, it can take up to 15 seconds post resume before the tcp/ip stack can actually make a connection, yikes!). One thing I was hoping to find, but doesn't seem to be covered is the SSL support that's built into the winsock stack on PocketPC, a pity as the current docs are pathetic to say the least.
