I am having trouble trying to activesync (4.5 beta 2) my hp 2755 with my dell PC. I have an iogear 2.0 (1.1 compatible) bluetooth adapter. For some reason, when I use the activesync connection with the bluetooth manager the only port opiton that it gives me is com4. However, for some reason my serial port that it assigns me is com5.
I had to use the iogear set up for bluetooth because my windows XP service pack 2 bluetooth drivers seem to be corrupt.
Ive gone to the device manager and verified the bluetooth device and updated the drivers. I have gone to my computer, and done the connections tab on the on the dellactive syc and placed the correct com.
I have gone to the bluetooth places on my desktop and it recognizes the pocket pc but will not active sync.
When I go the the activesync connection on the PDA it does not allow me to changes the default setting of USB.
I have created a partnership of the devices but this also does not solve the problem.
How do I go about active sync for this device. I looked at the 3970 advice but the problems is the 2 different com ports (I guess). I also have a gps connected. Is this why it is creating 2 different ports?

Welcome to Geekzone. You have to configure the ActiveSync on your PC to use the com port available from the Bluetooth service. Check on your PC what COM port is "Incoming" or "Server" and use that one.

After this is configured, delete the pairing from your Pocket PC, and from the device create a new pairing. You don't have any configuration to complete on the Pocket PC side. If the PC side is correctly configured then the ActiveSync icon will spin a bit and the Pocket PC will recognise the pairing as capable of synchronisation.

To start ActiveSync over Bluetooth after this you have to open the program on your Pocket PC and tap in the Connect via Bluetooth option.
