    Connecting to Mobile from a remote server through GPRS connection

    I had GPRS enabled sim, and am able to access a remote server (Windows XP) from my mobile. Also, when I connect to the internet, an IP is assigned to my Mobile device. I am not able to access my mobile device using this IP. Moreover I am not able to ping this IP from my remote server. But from My Mobile device I am able to ping the server. I am using Airtel as GPRS service provider. Any idea where the problem lies.
    The main aim of my application is two way communication between a Mobile and a Server over internet using some protocol (RMI or http).

    Thanks in advance

    Hi,

    I don't think the IP assigned to your phone is a Static global IP. It is specific and internal to the operator network. That's why u are not able to ping it from outside.

    To your server u can connect using socket but i don't think vice-versa.

    Thanks a lot Guys...
    I was also having the similar image in my mind...The service provider is assigning a local IP to my device...
    But is it possible to do some kind of configuration on the service provider's end so that I can ping my device from internet.

    Thanks a lot...
