RhostResolver and Rconnection
There is an open method that accepts RConnction for RSocket.
That makes one wonder why there is not one for RHostResolver, since DNS requests are done using IP as well.
Well actually there is. It is just missing from the documentation of S60v2.1 SDK. Probably from the deocs of sack symbian as well.
You will find the alternate Open method if look at the es_sock.h header file.
I tried opening a Rsocket using an RConnection instance on Series 60 v2.6 ( Symbian 8.0a ) but application crashes. GPRS connection is establishe successfully as I am able to retrieve IP address and GPRS symbol is shown in status bar.
Can you please guide possible cause of error.
Don't have 2.6 SDK/phone , but AFAIK Rconnection is symbian 7.0S thing and Symbian 8 has yet just another api for this purpose.
RConnestion was first introduced in Symbian 7.0s to replace Nifman. It would be very bad if Symbian 8.0 replaced this new concept for another one..:-)
It is definitely supported in S60v2.6, but it is difficult what the problems can be without more information. Are you sure that it is v2.6 related issue? Does it work on older phones?
