The browser isn't accessing the internet, it's accessing the TCP/IP stack. When you enter a URL, it looks up what IP address it goes to via DNS (unless you just entered an IP address directly), and then requests that IP address from the TCP/IP stack. (I am oversimplifying this ever so slightly, but you get the idea.)No sorry it's not any assumption I use HEX-NET daily. Also I've played with this idea long before but it's just not possible. When your device creates a hotspot it is creating a gateway between the 3G/4G and your WIFI radio. So it just can connect to that same wifi.
Exactly, and your phone when you open a browser it would be using the WWAN (cellular data), to access the internet.
Are you able to connect your browser to anything but the cellular data network when you have a hotspot active? If so pls show me how you are able to do so?
Android runs on a Linux kernel, the same as any desktop, so your comment it without merit, sorry . . . Just because it's in a phone doesn't change the IP stack in the kernel.The context here is only mobile devices and browsers (i.e. Android, iOS etc etc) this is of no interest w/a full computer as it then isn't relevant with the HEX-NET.
I've done this with iPhone 4, 5 and nexus 5.If you're able to create a WIFI HOTSPOT with a mobile device and connect the same device's browser to the same network (call it whatever you want) please show me how and with what device you are able to do so.
iOS is derived from Mac OS X.. . . But *nix based platforms (including Android) have never has this limitation, and I have no idea on iWhatever, but suspect the OSX stuff to befine, since it's a *nix platform, and no clue on iOs)).
G3TDI, some of the stuff you posted earlier is just plain wrong, and others have explained why. Also Santos has has done exactly what you seem to think can't be done, as have others. If you have a HEX-NET and you're having trouble making the same thing happen, come on over to our forum and we'll be happy to help you there.
Yep just tried and works just used the app fing to find the IP and bingo! ThanksI've done this with iPhone 4, 5 and nexus 5.
These phones under tether mode act as the hotspot and can access local addresses (in this case, the hex-net).
There is no need for a third device to view the local address.
Uwe -What kind of product is that (in general terms)?
VCDS-Mobile is a scan tool, where the modules in the car are generally the limiting factor in performance and throughput. Unless of course you're using VW's own scan-tool (which Windows-based, but serious bloatware). Ours make theirs look bad that way.
Depends on what you consider "fail". Have you tried making a BT scan tool that works iPhones or iPads? Like 'em or not, they're a big (and relatively loyal) segment of the mobile device market.
.... you have a totally different perspective than I do as small business owner. I think I understand yours, because I spent 10 years in such an environment. I'm not sure you understand mine, including the part that we're awfully tired of having our work stolen...
So tell me, if I gave you $1 million and told you I wanted you to develop a scan tool for brand X cars, and I wanted it to be usable on ANY mobile device, no matter what the OS, present or future, as well as any real computer made in the last 5 years, no matter what the CPU architecture, OS, etc, what tool(s) would you use? I'm just curious.
Why thank you!
No, grabbing a Windows box is the alternative if you have no connectivity, and you need functionality that isn't available in the product stand-alone mode. We believe that once the VCDS-Mobile is mature, the need to resort to "VCDS Classic" will be exceedingly rare.
How does it make sense to add a display and make this a stand-alone device when everyone already has perfectly good display in their pocket? How many people would pay for that?
It does transfer the license (the license is in the cable). What it doesn't transfer is the registration. The registration is necessary for direct help from Ross-Tech and for most upgrade offers (interface upgrades). It is not necessary for software updates. If you don't need Ross-Tech's help a used cable will work fine.Does that transfer the VCDS license with it?
OK, so how would the new owner of a used cable get the VCDS software installed on his Windows computer? Connect the cable to it and copy the application?It does transfer the license (the license is in the cable). What it doesn't transfer is the registration.

You just download the program and install it. The first time you run the program, you have to plug in the cable and plug it into a car. Then you have to go to the "options" screen and "test" your cable. This reads the dongle in the cable, and tests the car's connection. Then you can change screen size (or any other options) and then save the configuration. Once this is done (the configuration saved), you just plug into a car and run the program. If you do not connect to a car the first time you run the program, it will nag you every time you run the program until you do this "test" and "save" from the options screen. You have to do this test and save thing every time you install the program - a minor PITA.OK, so how would the new owner of a used cable get the VCDS software installed on his Windows computer?

See post #3 video here:the one last thing i'm confused on how to do is to use VCDS mobile over the net, which i heard was possible..
