first I noticed that gdbserver needs a command line like this

without path to .exe it just exits with a usage message
this is due to the fact that wince doesn't define a default (current)
directory like '.'
1) gdbserver currently ignores host part in HOST:PORT, so you can
just use '$GDBSERVER :$PORT $PATH'.
2) There is *no* notion of current directory on Windows CE. On
WinCE, every path *must* be absolute. (There is an
hardcoded $PATH, that looks of executables in \Windows and \ )
Gdbserver allows you to use forward slashes too:
gdbserver.exe :9999 /path/test.exe
And skip the .exe extension:
gdbserver.exe :9999 /path/test
Test over RNDIS and WLAN with the same results. gdbserver times out after
about 8 seconds
I'm not sure what you're seeing. You should see something like
\> gdbserver :9999 main
Process main created; pid=-1226757750
Listening on port 9999

Can you be more specific? (__MINGW32CE__ is automatically
defined by the mingw32ce compiler.)
any ideas what might be going on, or how best to trace this?
Looks like something is not 100% right in your tcp/ip
Can you ping the host from the device ?
Is there any firewalling involved ?
Can you start gdbserver listening on 9999, and telnet it (to
remove gdb from the picture) with 'telnet $ip 9999' ?
