jr_mfn_p,
I just tested. Yes you can get incomming calls while connected to the internet using the phone as a modem. It pauses your internet connection untill you hang up the phone, then restores the internet connection automatically.
You can not talk and surf the web at the same time though.

Thanks for testing that out, Salinas7127. I had been wondering the same thing... I'd noticed that when I was talking to someone I couldn't download apps or anything. At least this way, the voice call preempts the data connection.

Glad to hear you got Azilink working for you!

I tried to download the azinet links but I can't open them once loaded. And my comp redirects me to a site where I can buy the program to open it...for 30 bucks.

Rar files are pretty common. WinRAR has a free trial that never really expires, or you can just use 7zip, which really is free forever. Both will unpack the rar file for you.

Any ideas?
I'm having the same issues with my #2 laptop. Install on #1 laptop worked.

I had PC Studio (latest) installed in #2 when I updated to the latest version of PDAnet (2.12), and that's when I got that darn drvins.exe error. Sucks. Whatever is in 2.12 must've conflicted with something in PC Studio since if I understood correctly - pdanet 2.12 is a standalone and does not require PC Studio drivers.

Sorry, but at this moment in time I do not have a solution. I've emailed Junefabrics with the issue, and the software engineer sent me back a recompiled *.exe file to try. It didn't work, and I got the same error so I've concluded that it is an issue with the laptop OS.

I've kept an older version of PDAnet on this one - ver 2.11.

I had an older version of PDAnet running on Laptop #2 with PC Studio drivers. It was when I did the upgrade to 2.12 that I got the error. I tried re-installing the older version, but still got the error.

That is strange. I am running windows 7 prof. with pdanet and having no problems at all.

Did you install the drivers that were provided halfway down the first page?

Junefabrics may well be the best source of help at this point. Maybe you can followup where I left off. I just haven't had the time to investigate further myself.

One of the things that tripped me up with Azilink is that the Folder needs to be installed in the ROOT of the C: drive. I had it on my desktop and no matter what I did, I got the 'connection refused' message over and over. When I moved the Azilink folder to the root, everything works.
Thanks so much. Informative thread!

That's weird. I have it buried in my downloads folder on my external drive and it works fine (Win7 32-bit).

Default Azilink Instructions Document

Hi All,
Cheesemoo helped me out a ton. I thought it would be helpful to put a description together with screen shots. Hope it helps,feel free to modify.

As crazy and strange as it sounds, I had to start my install using PDAnet to get drivers to load.

Maybe not needed, but worked for me. See attached word document.

Whats up with the phone just becoming unusable to the USB port and require restarting?
i was having this issue with PDA net also.
It tells you the device is no longer recognized, and then once you restart it, things work wonderfully.

I'm having a similar problem. I got this working on both my win XP 32 system and my roommates Win7 64 system after a bit a trial and error.

The problem is that it works for a while... Normally an hour or 2. Sometimes longer, sometimes not. Then it completely stops working and tosses up the same reconnection messages shown above.

The only way to fix this problem is to reboot the phone. Restarting the program on the phone don't work. I do not however need to restart the computer, just the program on the computer.

I have read through every post on this forums and others and I'm just lost on how to fix it. If there is something that I can post here to give you all a btter idea of what my issue is, please ask. I would like to ask however that you be as detailed as possible in your request because I'm very newbish about all of this.

I downloaded cheesemoo pack and followed the instructions. And I honestly didn't understand anything I was doing and used trial and error to figure some things out for myself. It took me 4 hours to get it working, yes I'm pretty much an idiot when it comes to things like this. For example part of the instructions say:

Quote:
The OpenVPN Client requires a configuration file
and key/certificate files. You should obtain
these and save them to \Program Files\OpenVPN\config.
Might as well be written in Spanish as there is no mention of how or where to obtain these or what they even are. Just an example of my level of expertise when it comes to this kind of stuff. I'm sure this is common knowledge to most of you. I ended up downloading the configuration file I found randomly on another forum which got my connection working. I still have no clue what the key/certificate files are, but like I said, I got the connection working anyway.

But clearly I have done something wrong as my connection stops working as I have said. I have already reinstalled the program on my phone. This did lengthen the period of time in-between crashes but sooner or later it goes back to crashing more quickly. This leads me to believe it's something with the phone and the program. Again, I downloaded cheesemoo's pack. I would appreciate any guidance.

I'm still within my 30 day return on the moment, so If I can't figure it out I think I will go get the hero instead as I heard tethering is painless on it. I would rather have this phone so I want to try and make it work.

I'm not sure where you saw that stuff about the OpenVPN config/key files. Maybe in the official Azilink docs? Anyway, all you should need is in that pack I made already. The config file you'd be looking for is in the package, located at Azilink/OpenVPN/azilink.ovpn. But it sounds like you already found another copy and got it working, so you probably don't need to change your setup.

Anyway, if you got it working at all, then I don't know why it would suddenly stop and need a restart. I have never tethered for more than a half hour or so at a time, but it has never just died on me. The only problem I've had is that it will sometimes just not start (on my XP-32 machine), and I'll have to reboot my PC. Never had any problems at all with Win7-64.

Are you seeing the disconnects on both your XP and Win7 machines, or only on the XP box?

Are any other Moment users experiencing disconnects like this?
Anyone with a Hero care to comment?
Please post your OS if you do, it might be helpful in diagnosing this.

Default up and running

well from shat i can figure out pdanet will not work on xp pro for some reason. I had xp pro on my laptop and on my desktop and it would not work on neither.I kept getting that drvinst.exe error. I installed vista on my laptop just for shits and giggles. installed drivers from page 1 here, and within minutes i was online on my laptop. I get evdo rev a when i'm roaming but my speed still isn't that great. best i've seen is 600 download and 100 upload. any one have any ideas to speed it up.

Yes it was the open directions, they kind of through me off. I noticed the files you mentioned later after I got it working. This problem is only with my xp32 box. My roommates win7 box is not working at all. But that is a driver issue on his computer so I don't know if my issue was effecting him as he only used it one time.

As I said, works fine after a phone reboot, perhaps this software can't keep connections for long periods of time.

@cheesemoo
Any clue why AZIlink will not transmit data to my computer when it is roaming?
I can get on my moment and view pages, but it will not receive data requests from the computer, but it will send them.

This is a problem for me, I hope all android phones are not this way.
I already noticed it throws a fit on occasions with roaming data.

Talyn, I'm not entirely sure. I've only been roaming once, and it seemed to work okay I think (the signal strength was really bad but I think before I lost coverage altogether it did let me download some data).

When I first went roaming, my phone freaked out and was like "OH MY GOSH YOU'RE ROAMING DO YOU REALLY WANT TO USE THE DATA CONNECTION?". I just told it to never bother me about it again, to always let me use data while roaming. If you already did that, and your phone lets you surf the web etc. while roaming without bugging you, then I'm not sure what else you can do. If you didn't tell it to never bug you again, then it might be that the Azilink service just doesn't ask you or something, so it never uses data while roaming unless you already said to never bug you about it.

Anyway, sorry if that isn't very helpful. As I said, I've only been roaming once and the cell coverage was really bad... I don't really remember if I got data over Azilink or not. Maybe send the Azilink developer an email about it? His email is listed at azilink - Project Hosting on Google Code (sorry, don't want to just post it here - spambots and all)

Now I get Samsung New PC Studio to recognize and see my Samsung Moment on my laptop (running XP Pro SP2). However, I still have the problem on my desktop (running XP pro SP3), when I plug the Samsung Moment in, all I get in USB is Unknown device. Using USBview I do not see any data on this Unknown device (all fields have 0x00 value). Have tried to remove and re-install the Samsung New PC Studio several times (including deleteing anything I see Samsung in the registry). The worst thing is the Samsung Moment would hang up and have to remove the battery to get it restarted.

I even tried to remove the USB devices (got me scared because after removing the keyboard and mouse USB device, after I reboot the keyboard and mouse USB drivers did not get restored, luckily after poking the F8 key I managed to reboot with last known good condition!!! Phew!!).

So still puzzling here to see how I can connect the Samsung Moment with my desk top.

store in some location on your hard drive.
3. Once the Studio PC installation is done, you can now download (if you haven't already) and install PDANET 1.17 on your laptop. It will stop with a pop up
and a list of instructions for moving forward with the installation.....

4. Now, on your Moment, you'll want to turn on "USB DEBUGGING".
Settings -> Applications -> Development -> USB DEBUGGING
5. Connect the Moment to your PC. The PC will now start installing the
necessary drivers. If you've grabbed the stripped drivers, you'll have to
manually point the install to the folder locations.
6. Once all drivers are done. Hit OK on the PDANET installation prompt. The PC will now install PDANET on your Moment.
7. Once done. Go back to the Moment and look for PDANET. Turn it on while it's still connected to the PC. It should now make a connection.
OK, so what is it? debugging checked or unchecked?

I'll testify to that. I've had winrar for a couple years now. It always tells me it's expired and I need to upgrade. But it has yet to fail to extract the rar file when asked to

Hey Stoney62. You definitely need debugging on to tether your phone. I'm not sure what that first post is going on about, seems to be about mounting your SD card as a USB drive... which works with debugging enabled anyway (as long as you have the drivers installed), so I don't know why they said you have to turn debugging off.

And the second post has you using PdaNet. If you can get it working, that's great, but I have had nothing but trouble with it. Azilink, on the other hand, is free and was very easy for me to get working on both WinXP-32 and Win7-64. Just download the package I posted on page 2 of this thread, and follow the instructions in the readme.

(One thing I did forget in the readme: after you install Azilink to your phone, you need to launch the app and fill in the checkbox to enable the service.)

But it sounds like you already found another copy and got it working, so you probably don't need to change your setup.

Anyway, if you got it working at all, then I don't know why it would suddenly stop and need a restart. I have never tethered for more than a half hour or so at a time, but it has never just died on me. The only problem I've had is that it will sometimes just not start (on my XP-32 machine), and I'll have to reboot my PC. Never had any problems at all with Win7-64.

Are you seeing the disconnects on both your XP and Win7 machines, or only on the XP box?

Are any other Moment users experiencing disconnects like this?
Anyone with a Hero care to comment?
Please post your OS if you do, it might be helpful in diagnosing this.
I was having trouble with the disconnecting. I opened up the config file and changed keep alive from 10 30 to 20 60 and ping from 10 to 20.
There was a discussion on an OpenVpn blog, here is a quote. This may solve disconnects? What do you think, it seems to be working now, maybe it is conincidence.

The keepalive directive causes ping-like
# messages to be sent back and forth over
# the link so that each side knows when
# the other side has gone down.
# Ping every 10 seconds, assume that remote
# peer is down if no ping received during
# a 120 second time period.
keepalive 10 120

Cheesemoo,

In your batch file that's suppose to start the program, what does %-dp0 suppose to do?

If I execute the commands from the batch file by themselves (in the appropriate folder and without the %-dp0) it starts without a problem. But it doesn't run from your batchfile.

Ok this is the error message that keeps popping up on my phone when azilink crashes om my handset.

Code:
this application AziLink (process org.lfx.azilink) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again
Like I said in a post above, this crash comes after an hour or two connected. To fix the problem I have to restart my phone. Any ideas?

Could you link to the blog entry? I must say I really don't know anything about OpenVPN, so I don't know if that change would help things or not.

Over the weekend, I was forced to use Azilink with an XP machine for an extended period of time (forgot the charger for my Win7 laptop, stupid me). Anyway, it worked fine for a while and then after a half hour or so I lost internet access. There were no error messages from OpenVPN, but I checked usbdeview and the phone itself was shown as not connected. Replugging didn't change anything, but rebooting the phone made it recognized in Windows again, and Azilink worked for another little while before doing the same disconnect.

I'm not sure if the problem is with WinXP or with the phone. I am now going to try Azilink with my Win7 laptop and see how long it lasts. If it works fine until I go to bed in a few hours, I'll assume the problem is inherent in XP. Anyway, I'll post back later and let you all know how it went.

I don't know how it works, but %~dp0 gives you the directory the batch file is running in. So for example "%~dp0\adb\adb" runs a program called adb in a directory called adb which is one level deeper than the directory the batch file is running in.

You will probably have better luck if you put the paths in quotes. For some reason, some of my computers don't mind them unquoted (even if there are spaces in the path), but some freak out. Anyway, using this might fix your problem:

Code:
"%~dp0\adb\adb" kill-server
"%~dp0\adb\adb" forward tcp:41927 tcp:41927
"C:\Program Files\OpenVPN\bin\openvpn.exe" "%~dp0\OpenVPN\azilink.ovpn"
Let me know if that fixes it for you, or what error message you get if it doesn't fix it. Thanks!

Interesting. I have never had Azilink crash on my phone. Try contacting the guy who made Azilink. Maybe he will have a suggestion, or he might have you send some logs in to help diagnose the problem.

His address is found on this page:

Well, crap. It worked for all of a couple minutes before doing the exact same thing it did in XP. Not sure why I haven't noticed this before...

Rebooting the laptop didn't help; I had to reboot the phone for Windows to recognize it as a USB device again.

Anyway, this sucks, and I'm rather puzzled as to why it's happening. The problem certainly seems to be on the phone, but whether it's hardware or software, I don't know.

I'm going to try moving a bunch of files on and off of my SD card... if it fails then, I'll assume the problem is hardware. If not, then it could be software. Might have to give PdaNet a try (though people don't seem to be having much luck with it and Win7-64).

pdanet works quite well for tethering despite paying $29 for https connections to work after 30 days im happy with it. imo idk azilink seems more of a hassle to bother with, although it is free. i had some trouble setting up pdanet cuz of the lack of usb drivers. after i used the provided driver pack which i dled here in the thread it was smooth sailing. pdanet does radomaly disconnect sometimes, though hardly a bother.

I used pdanet on my touch pro with no problems for over a year. But now I have the moment and I keep getting the DrWhatever error during install. It just wont install. So I'm using azi now which has the whole crashing issue, but works for the most part.

I have pro sp2. I never got any option to point at drivers during install. The drivers for the phone are working fine, my computer can see the phone and connect to it with no problem.

No idea what the Dr. whatever crash is coming from..

For anyone who was having the Dr. Watson error with PDANet this issue has been fixed with ver a214 that seems to have just been released. Both my roomate on win7-64 and me on xp32 installed this new version and it works perfectly. No issues at all. You can get it via the link below...

ok. so i read most of the original posts from others. first I downloaded the stripped drivers from here: Samsung Stripped Drivers . Then i downloaded the newest PDAnet from here: PDAnet for Android. I have a macbook running OS X snow leopard with VMfusion. on my PC side, i installed PDAnet. When it asked to install the new software I pointed it to the folder of drivers that was on my desktop. it found them all. after updating to PDAnet 2.12 on my Moment, I put the widget on my home screen and clicked the USB button. enabled the connection on my PC and was instantly connected at 2.4Mb/s! Good luck to all and thank you to those that have contributed! You make life so much easier for the rest of us!!!

also, i could not get that Samsung PC thing to give me the right drivers! Use the ones in the stripped .zip file link. So easy!!

Default Start Azilink Batch file issue

First of all, I have a new Gateway Netbook with Windows 7 Starter. I have a question. I am following these instructions and when I run the "Start Azilink" batch file, it just keeps running over and over. Will this work on Windows 7 Starter? If so, what would cause the problem I am having? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

What do you mean running over and over? Like, it keeps retrying the connection or something? Please post the text you're seeing in the command window.

I don't know why it wouldn't work with Win7 Starter, but I don't know much about that edition.

Default Tethering still a no go.

I have followed the steps posted here a couple of times.

0. Enable USB Debugging
1. Install Samsung Studio
2. Connect Moment
3. Samsung Studio recognizes the moment.
4. Install PDANet 2.14
5. Restarted Moment
6. Tried to connect using PDANet
"Failed to Connect, Please check your phone and make sure PdaNet has been turned on."

That's the furthest I've gotten.

**Edit**

It would appear as though I've corrected the issue. I had to reinstall PDANet on the phone and it worked.
