Help needed to access the internet throgh ethernet...

Hi dears,

Greetings from Prakash.A I am working in Symbian C++. Now I am trying to access internet from emulator through the


So I downloaded the the .pdf file which has the instruction to configure the steps.. I did all the steps..

but when I trying to dot the last step that is executing the following command
" --config ethernetWithCommDB --kernel EAK1 --target wins --variant UDEB"

I am getting the following error like

"Setting up CommDB for ethernet
Running Netcards to obtain adapter info
Failed to read physical address of Ethernet card
Can't spawn "D:\\Symbian\7.0s\Series60_v20\epoc32\tools\netcar ds": No such file
or directory at D:\Symbian\7.0s\Series60_v20\Epoc32\tools\configch line 73.
Error running netcards! "

In the the line number 73 is as following

"$drive\\$epocroot\\epoc32\\release\\$target\\$var iant\\ceddump" ) == 0
or die "Error running ceddump!\n";
system( "move $drive\\$epocroot\\epoc32\\$target\\c\\cedout.cfg

$drive\\$epocroot\\epoc32\\$target\\c\\nonethernet ced.cfg" ) == 0 ------------ --------------->this only is line number 73

i am facing the same problem.

When "\epoc32\tools\netcards.exe" is invoked, the error msg says:

Adapters installed:
Failed to read physical address of Ethernet card

As a result, netcards output file, ethernet.ini is not written.

Any inputs on this will be of great help

Make sure you have winpcap installed.

The version is important. IIRC, 3.0 and later do not currently work.

Try the last 2-series like this one:


access, ethernet, internet, needed, throgh
