    I followed the recipe on the Sprint Community site:

    Samsung Moment:USB connectivity - Samsung Moment

    Settings/Applications/Developement/USB debugging
    -Uncheck USB debugging
    -Status Notification will show USB icon
    -Bring down Notification bar and select USB connected
    -Select Mount from next menu and now your computer will read your device

    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!!).:confused:

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

    Arg I hate the quick reply problems on here.

    Anyways.

    Is there any benifit to AZ Link over PDAnet?

    I'm using pda net, cause the initial distro we had on here of azlink was a bit to confusing before my morning coffee was finished.

    PDANet crashing can be attributed to not having certain windows services running or turned off. Check out this link, it talks about vista, but this fixed it for me on XP.

    I was following this thread and trying and trying but am stuck

    I have the opnVpn installed on computer. I am not sure if I configured it correctly. I did two things, i generated a static VPN Key and then I copied that azilink.ovpn to the config folder.

    I see the ADB interface in Device Manager and it says Samsung Android Composite.
    I right click on open VPN and try to connect.

    Below here is the message i get. did I miss something? I have no experience with programming so, I am not sure What the heck is going on. Do I need to unique numbers other than what is given in that config file? Why the connection failure? :confused::confused:

    Thanks,
    Scott

    It sounds like you didn't turn on the Azilink service on your phone. Open the Azilink app and check 'enable service' checkbox. Then give it another try. Sorry I didn't mention this in my readme.

    As far as I know, they do basically the same thing, if you have the paid version of PdaNet. If you are using the free version and it has expired, PdaNet will only forward http traffic (maybe just only port 80 traffic, I don't know how it does the filtering). Azilink is free and as far as I know will always forward all ports.

    Hi Cheesemoo,

    On my phone, when I open up the Azilink, the first check box is Service Active. I have checked this. The status says waiting for connection. All the other parameters read 0. When I run the OPENVPN, it get the same error message repeated over and over.

    Okay then, my next theory is that your phone doesn't have port forwarding set up. This could be caused by either of these:

    1. The ADB drivers didn't install right
    2. The adb port forwarding command didn't work for some reason

    I guess the first thing you should try is to run "adb devices" in a command window (you'll have to navigate to the folder where you have adb first).

    If that returns an empty list, then it sounds like the drivers didn't work. Maybe try reinstalling?

    If it returns a connected phone, adb should be able to see your phone. Try doing "adb forward tcp:41927 tcp:41927". That should get the port forwarding going.

    If you get port forwarding set up, and the service is enabled on your phone, and you still get the same error from OpenVPN, then I'm not sure what could be wrong. Maybe a firewall issue?

    Cool. I will try your package and report back. The previous try left me confused.

    Pluss PDA net is super buggy and a pain at that.
    Why can they not just let us have regular tethering without any issues. =*(

    Hi Cheese Moo,
    Thanks for the suggestion. I did what you suggested and got the following message in prompt:
    List of Devices attached
    M900da07cc8a device.

    You suggested I do adb forward, I have no clue how to do that. Where, and how is this done?
    THanks

    I tried the command the same way as I did for checking for the attached devices. It worked. (Surprise to me since i don't know what i am doing) The openvpn says I am connected to azilink, my phone shows the same. BUTTTTTT, No bytes or information moving on Azilink on phone, cannot load a browser. :(
    I have gotten this far, hopefully this isn't then end and I can get this to work. I included below the log that OPENVPN shows.

    It looks like OpenVPN is connecting okay, and if the phone says it's connected, then I think that means it is. Are you running Windows XP? I have noticed that sometimes I have to reboot my XP computer to get it to recognize Azilink's internet connection. I never have this problem with my Windows 7 computer, so I assume it is a problem with XP.

    If rebooting doesn't solve your problem, I'm not sure what you can do. It looks like the connection is set up right, but Windows isn't using it.

    Hi Cheesemoo,
    Great news, I am writing you from the connection. Couldn't have done it without your guidance.

    Be sure to kill andoid forums for resetting everything you typed before the page loaded.

    Works great. Seems faster actually. Gives the computer a homely feel with a command window open.

    I have no idea why they are doing the stupid adminstrator crap on newer windows.
    Windows has a root account somewhere. I know it.

    Anyways.

    Yes, forgot to say to turn it on on the phone.
    And should also mention that people should restart their device if things are not installing.
    i had to uninstall PDA net first and restart the phone before it would recognize it. I just installed the drivers from your pack and uninstalled the PDA net ones to make for certian it would work.

    And, now, I'm on, but for some reason its telling me tehre is an error with connection.... hmmm
    Oh, its up set because its unidentified.
    Cry some more windows. =\ *sigh*

    Good work man.
    Package looks good

    I unpacked it in my download directory and cannot move it now though. Windows has all those annoying permissions crap, but anyways. I unzipped it onto my desktop and tried to run it from there and it wont work.
    I wonder why that is?

    Whats up with the phone just becoming unuseable 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.

    It should work fine as long as the directory structure in the zip file is maintained. What exactly doesn't work when you try having the folder on your desktop? Does a batch file give you an error?

    If a batch file is just popping up really fast and you don't have time to see what it says, add a new line to the bottom of the batch file with the text "pause". That will hold the window open so you can see what it says.

    I dunno. Are you running XP? I've only ever seen this problem on my XP machine. Thankfully I have Win7 on my laptop and don't need to tether to my XP box much.

    Talyn Well-Known Member

    Yea. i threw a pause in there. I know a bit of dos still. hehe.

    Anyways.
    It just acted like it had no clue what was going on.
    Oh well. I'll just use it where its at for now.

    If you want to post the batch output I might be able to suggest something, but if you're happy enough with how it's working for you then so am I.

    Ok, got the Samsung connected to my desktop now. :D The issue is the micro-USB cable. The one I used to connect to the desktop came with the Plantronics bluetooth headset. I guess that cable is only used for charging no data. No wonder I see all 0s with USBView and also the satus: DeviceFailedEnumeration.

    Thank you everyone for chiming in helping me out.

    I am also having problems installing PDAnet. I have followed all instructions in this thread.
    I double-click the install file, tells me to make sure the phone is disconnected, then asks me to connect phone after making sure USB debugging is on. I do that. Then my computer asks me to install drivers, I point windows to look in the Samsung folder that I downloaded from a previous post in this thread. All that works fine. I then click next, a screen pops up and I get a green check mark on installing USB driver, green check mark on setting up modem driver, but then crashes on the installing to phone step...
    drvins.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close..
    Any ideas?

    cheesemoo Active Member

    Might I suggest using Azilink? I have had nothing but trouble with PdaNet and never got it to work. I got Azilink to work just fine for me, see earlier posts for more info and downloads.
