    You might find the PC Suite API does what you want

    There are various solutions but none of them very easy unfortunatly.

    UPnP is another solution you could consider. There's already a client to do this in many Nseries phones (it's called Home media in my N95). You just need to make sure you enable UPnP on your PC. It's already built-in to Win XP onwards.

    Re: copy images from Gallery to computer

    I don't think so, but then again there are other issues to consider whne opening a pc to accept connections from the internet/anonymous sources.

    For that you would probably want to consider using an http server on the pc and using http to send down the files by a PUT command.

    Re: copy images from Gallery to computer

    Hi,

    Thx for the reply. I need to create an application which on load gets the pictures from the gallery and transfer them to the remote PC and I think i need to use TCP/IP socket programing for that.
    The problem that i m facing now is that what should be the path for reading those images? Should it be something like http://ip-address/......

    Please help me out.

    Regards

    Re: copy images from Gallery to computer

    Like I said, this feature is already there on lots of Nseries phones. If you want to add it to others there are a lot of open source projects you could port.

    It seems pretty crazy to write a proprietary solution for this.

    Security-wise, the idea is that you only run UPnP on your home network and rely on WiFi security for that. There is a firewall tunelling possibility but this is a big security hole.

    To talk to the phone via IP you either need to hard code an IP address for the device, if it's just a demo, or you need a discovery protocol. Again, UPnP already has device and service discovery built-in.

    But the problem with UPnP is that is it is very hard to get a stable solution.

    I have yet to find a reliable solution that works with my media pc, laptop, and N series phones.

    Re: copy images from Gallery to computer

    As Paul said its hard to get a stable solution as well as UpnP is not available in all the wifi enabled phones.
    The Reason I am looking for solution like this because the data transfer rate through wifi is more as compared to bluetooth.
