WinInet Application Development

WinInet provides base Internet functionality for Windows Mobile devices, including support for FTP Client, Autodial, Passport, Internet Explorer 6, and the MSXML parser. The WinInet API handles all communication between the application and Windows Sockets (Winsock), freeing you from the overhead associated with establishing and maintaining the communications session. WinInet for Windows Mobile supports the HTTP and FTP Internet protocols. Windows Mobile does not support for the Gopher protocol.
Multithreaded applications can make concurrent calls to WinInet functions from different threads. WinInet functions synchronize if necessary, but do not validate parameters.
For more information about the WinInet API and Windows Internet programming, see this Microsoft Web site.
