WMC6300 Pocket PC Users Guide Figure 16. Confirm Uninstall Overview of the MeshTray Application MeshTray MeshTray is a status application that reports vital and statistical information about the MEA card. Because MeshTray is a tray application, it stays in the desktop system status tray when it is minimized as shown in the figures below.
Active Ad-Hoc Peer-to-Peer Icon Starting MeshTray MeshTray will automatically start whenever a WMC6300 is inserted into the Pocket PC device. If MeshTray has been stopped and needs to be restarted, double-click on the MeshTray icon on the desktop. Also, if MeshTray has been minimized, clicking on the MeshTray icon in the system tray restores the application to a property sheet interface as shown in Figure 21.
Position box will be grayed out as shown in Figure 25. Likewise, if Enhanced Geo has been enabled on the WMC6300, an additional checkbox will appear to allow the user to select that mode. Refer to the section on the Geo Position Tab for additional information.
Figure 22. MeshTray Configuration Tab (1) Priority The User Priority service can be provisioned on a per node basis for use with tiered service and emergency access systems. This priority feature is unique to the MEA network and only exists between endpoints within the MEA network or between a MEA network node and the ingress/egress node on the MEA network.
WMC6300 Pocket PC Users Guide Figure 23. Priority Setting Drop-Down Menu Addressing Scheme for Unified Modes of Operation With MEA Release 3.0, the concept of modes has been replaced by a Unified Modes of operation addressing scheme. The concept of unified modes of operation centers on the current state of network communication: Associated State and Unassociated State.
Figure 24. Network Addressing Scheme Drop-Down Menu Network DHCP Scheme Operation under the Network DHCP scheme is similar to that of Release 2 in Infrastructure Mode. The primary difference is users are now allowed to temporarily wander outside of the network infrastructure without losing connectivity.
WMC6300 Pocket PC Users Guide This scheme requires that the host be configured to request an address from a DHCP server but does not require a DHCP server on the core network. It should be noted that a DHCP server can still exist on the network to hand out addresses to...
