How to configure ActiveSync via Bluetooth on your Pocket PC iPAQ H5440
Posted on 21-Mar-2003 17:14 by David Hettel | Tags Filed under: Articles


This article is the continuation of our Bluetooth Guides. Here we'll show you how to configure your Pocket PC and desktop/notebook to perform an ActiveSync operation over Bluetooth.

Please note that current software implementation will not allow you to have an "automatic" Activesync. Devices will not start the sync operation when they're close to each other - the user has to initiate it.

Again David Hettel helped us, writing the article and supplying the images. In this article he used a H5450 and a TDK USB Bluetooth (version 1.3.2.7).

Check out other Geekzone Bluetooth Guides.

Some screens on your Pocket PC may be different, but the idea is the same.

First we need to open the Bluetooth connection Manager. We can do this by tapping on the Bluetooth icon on the today screen in the lower right hand corner.

This will take us to the Settings page, where we tap on Bluetooth Manager at the bottom of the page.


On the Bluetooth Manager page we tap on New at the bottom.

And then we tap on connect!

This will start the Connection Wizard, here we scroll down to the end of the page.


And tap on ActiveSync, and then Next.

We then get the first of three pages telling us how to setup ActiveSync on the PC.
To determine which port Bluetooth on our PC is using we first right click on the Bluetooth icon on our PC.
Then Select Advanced Configuration, here you can see I am using version 1.3.2.7 on my PC.
We need to click on the Local Services tab to find out which com port the Bluetooth program is using. In my case you can see that the Bluetooth Serial Port is COM6. Note that yours may be different than mine. Also we are NOT using the Bluetooth Serial Port list under Client Applications. Click on cancel to close this screen
Now back to our PPC and the next page.
Here we have opened ActiveSync, and I have clicked on File, and then Connection Settings...

Also note that this image shows a device connected to ActiveSync, to change the port, there must be no device connected.
Now in the top box we select COM6 to match the COM setting we found earlier.
Click on ok to save this setting, and then back to our PPC.
Here we tap on the line which will take us to the next page...
Once your PC is found, tap on the icon.


This screen will appear briefly and then the next one.
Tap finish and you will see this pop up on your PC. Click on the bubble, and you will then move to the next dialog...
Check the Always allow this device to access this service, and we are done !
To initiate the ActiveSync, tap in the Bluetooth icon.
Then tap on Bluetooth Manager.
You'll see the connection created before.
Tap and hold the icon corresponding to the Activesync Connection created and click Connect!
