actvesync works via usb but on bluetooth I can get the devices to talk
they won't see each other - i've set both machine to the same com port and the firewall is allowing active sync
Make sure ActiveSync on your PC is using the "Incoming" or "Server" COM port.
Do not create or modify any COM port on your device - there's nothing to configure there.
Delete the partnership.
From your device search for your PC and create the parnership from there. This will scan for ActiveSync/WMDC server on the other side.
If you create a partnership from your PC it won't work.
benkepes: and on the laptop bluetooth control panel when I click on the mobile (wm_ben) it says device "WM_Ben" does not support service "ActiveSync"
