Has anybody setup exchange syncing on Apache via CDMA and then tried using WIFI on local wireless network to do the same thing?

Got a client with 3 x apaches working well with active sync on mobile broadband and via USB but wanting to do the same over their wireless lan WIFI network to save on mobile data?

Any ideas, is it an Exchange setting needing changing?

It works here, no problem. If the Exchange Server is inside the same network as the Wi-Fi access point, then you have to be sure the FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name) for your Exchange Server has a DNS entry on your private DNS pointing to the correct internal IP address. Public IP address will not work well because it will actually point to your router (or other device), not the server.

Also, make sure when connecting to the Wi-Fi for the first time you select "Internet" not "Work". Work is only for when there's no "." in the domain names (in private networks),
which is not the case most of the times.

If you don't have your own DNS server within your network then you might want to use a program such as Pocket Hosts to add an entry to the hosts registry on your Pocket PC - but remember to uncheck the box when outside this network so that your HTC Apache can find the Exchange Server again from an external network.
