Here is a list of things in order of priority I would like the Ezee3G software to
do in version 1.
1) Support for private mobile data services which don’t invoke a windows dial up
Whenever windows connects to the internet, notification messages are sent out to
all running services and applications that an internet connection has been established.
Suddenly all these applications, and services spring to life and begin to request
data from the internet, which is fine in wired broadband environment. Unfortunately
with a cellular connection, data transfer can be very expensive. You don’t want windows
to attempt a major OS update over your cellular connection downloading Giga bytes
of data - see preparing your computer for cellular networking. The other side effect
of this is that these services and applications use up available bandwidth, which
will slow down desirable data traffic over the internet. What is needed is private
internet connection that is controlled only by the Ezee3G software.
The plan is to implement the following private IP services
The sending of emails
Private HTTP requests
Establishment of TCP/IP streams to and from an applications
Set up voice calls ( only on local computer )
Control windows shell over packet network
Establish direct modem to modem connection for diagnostic purposes, i.e implement
a shell as alternative communication method where there is no packet networks available,
or SIM has run out of credit.
Set up and receive data calls ( implement controls for data transfer )
