Hi,
I am using a IVT Corp PAN bluetooth dongle on my laptop and my pocket pc (ipaq 2215) is talking to it and vice versa, however I cannot active sync. I saw a reply posted in a forum regarding whether the com port is started, which stated go to bluetooth configuration on the laptop, then local services etc, then set automatic. Where do I find bluetooth config, because it is not in active sync and I cannot find it thro Bluetooth devices via control panel.
My active sync is using comport 3 if that matters
Thanks for your help in advance
Ian
Cheers

Double-click the Bluetooth icon on the desktop - there's a Services menu where you manage all the services. I don't have much experience with the IVT software, but the little I've used it you should be able to configure a COM port and on ActiveSync on your PC you should use the same COM port defined.

thanks for the help, however this has not been successful. The pocket pc displays a window which says Your PC uses multiports please select one of the following, it then displays serial port A or serial port B.
The active sync on the PC cannot be changed from COM PORT 3, in my bluetooth software display it shows the computer communicating with the ipaq, however when the ipaq tries to connect to the host the connecting to host screen remains constantly displayed without an further activity.

You can delete ports on your Bluetooth configuration on the PC, if you only need one, and try again.

Apparently my computer is running numerous ports. Not sure why I would need to delete any of them. The computer talks to my bluetooth mobile phone fine and I can send stuff between the two but just not active sync my ipaq. When I use the computer to search for devices however it comes up with NO devices found.
Think I may just stick to good old fashioned cable if I can't resolve this
