1. Is it possible to detect if a PDA is connected (wi-fi) to a peer-to-peer
LAN (by IP or Device 
    If yes, how? maybe by a ping? is there a programmatic ping method?
2.How to detect the IP of a PDA from an App running on the same PDA? In a
   LAN, is the PDA IP static like for the workstations?
Basically, what I'd like to do is to  retrieve the IP of the PDA  when the
user on the PDA makes a change to a data file on the desktop server (via
sockets)  I want to store the IP of the PDA (if static) or its Device name
(which I know I can retrieve from the PDA registry) if the IP
keeps changing. 
If necessary, I need to see in a subsequent moment if the PDA is still
connected to the LAN
(with a ping or other method).
Thanks for any help.
