Android :: Programmatically Find IP Address Of The Desktop Over USB Tethering
Aug 31, 2010
Is there a way to find the IP address of the desktop machine connected the android phone after USB tethering is turned on? Does android assign a fixed IP address to the desktop? Or does it assign a dynamic address (dhcp)? Is there a PPP connection created between the phone and machine?
Can anyone recommend an address book app which allows for full postal addresses, email addresses and phone numbers - and can sync with Outlook on a desktop PC. It would be useful if a touch on the appropriate bit of the file would start up a phone call an email or even a word processor. Phone is a Galaxy running 2.1
I know that this is sort of stupid thing not to know, but how do you actually set up the link between the Eris and the desktop when using Wireless Tether? I went through the Wireless network Setup and I even went through Network Setup Wizard and Network Connections and still haven't been able to figure out how to actually initiate wireless tetherthing through wi-fi. I'm sure that it's something bonehead that I haven't considered. The only time I've set up networks is with the help of ISP tech support or the ISP setup CD.
How can I find the IP address of the an HTC incredible connected to Verizon's network? My other question - do I have to make any changes to my App to run it on a cellular network? Till now the App was running on a Nexus One connected to a local Wi-Fi network.
A long long time ago, like 2.5 yrs ago when I was using a Treo, there was a great app called Directory Assistant (DA for those ex treo users).
It was a dedicated white pages, and very fast.
What everybody has been telling me on my droid is just to type the name into the search bar up top. That then brings up a browser with google's results. So when I went to look for 'joe blow' 'anycity' yesterday it brought up a link for his facebook, linkedin, research paper he wrote, etc.., everything but his phone number.
What is the best way to find someones phone number or address if you know their name and state with Android on the droid?
My Incredible is still on the charger and will be for a few hours. Since I can't poke around in the settings yet, is there a way to find your MAC address? My WAP is setup with MAC filtering, so I will need to know it for wi-fi to work properly.
I searched through another thread and it wasn't specified, but I have the Droid2 and want to connect to the home wifi router, but don't know my phone's MAC address as this is the setting of the router to make it more efficient for gaming.
I have already gone to the settings page under wifi and 'advanced' but it has a MAC ADDRESS listing, but won't let me select it saying it is unavailable.
1. How can I enable and find out my MAC Address 2. While I'm at it although I have not been on the forums in a few weeks and admit this is a lazy ploy at help, has a one click or 'user-friendly' root come for Droid2 that doesn't require me to read pages of a thread and go through 100 steps!?
1. When I turn on my phone, the boot up with the Droid mascot and the HTC logo is extremely loud. Is there any way I can lower the volume on this? Does the Media volume control this?
2. Is there any way I can find out the ip address my phone is using when it is connected via wi-fi? I know you can set-up a static IP, but I'm just trying to see what my ip address is without using a static one.
I like to add addresses to my phone book in Android. As a lot of my contacts live in buildings i also like to add the floor and apartment number to the address: Looking like that:
Street and Number, Floor and Department number Town, zip code State Country
Av. Whatever 12345, Floor 5-A Buenos Aires 1007 Argentina
When clicking on the address the GPS of my wish opens , finds the country, city but not the street because of the additional Floor and department information. Without this additional information everything well with Google Maps or Sygic.
So, how should i add this additional Floor and department information to my address without the GPS has problems to find the main location.Also from ICS on there is only one filed to add the whole address not as with Gingerbread where you had a field for street, city, etc.
Just getting used to my HTC Desire, after reading your forum I was comforted regarding battery life and it seems much better now than the first few days. I see another post on this but no answer, the address book only gives one line of the address is then any way round this? Even my first pda a Psion 3 had the option of which fields to display etc. there seems very little option to format what is seen, not that I am unhappy about the rest but to have to edit to see all the address is barmy. Another thing way back then that still is not found is search all fields of the contacts, i.e. to find a number of someone that rang on another phone.
The Gmail address book on the Web contains a field for birthdays, so why not the Android address book? While I'm sure the app could undergo a lot of changes (and everyone would have different ideas) something as basic as a birthday seems obvious.
I cant seem to find the answer anywhere. I just came from a Blackberry and I have always sync'd with my desktop at night, mainly to back up my calendar. But now my calendar is with google sync so I have no need to back up to my computer...that I know of? I also haven't seen any mention of a fascinate desktop? Is there one and should I be syncing up?
I am working on an application that needs to find GPS location of the user. While testing my code on Droid i am unable to find the GPS location. While googling i found this link to an issue raised with Google.
But apps like Yelp can find the GPS location on droid. Is there a workaround to find the user location on a device? Here's the code I am using code....
I am writing an app that requires to get the current map location. My Map file works fine by it self, but I need to get the address (see addressString below at the buttom) from another Activity. I tried getAddress/setAddress (setters/getters). They do not work. They always return 'no address' (the default).
I know there are lots of threads about this already, but I need to RDP for work. So I have been looking for the best app to do that.I tried xtralogic's rdp, which is nice, but it looks like it only works with VPN, and when I tried to VPN in, it would give me a out of memory warning, and crash.So I tried phonemypc. also nice, but that only works if the account in use is constantly logged on to the servers, which I can't do.My account always gets logged off because other users need to get on as well.is there another app that might work better than these? does anyone else have a similar problem?
I give up. I can't find this anywhere. I saw on here that somebody posted an app for the Droid X that allows a virtual desktop (work on your home PC from your phone). Please tell me I am not nuts and this exists.
