so...

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

any ideas???

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.

Check "Allow Connection to COM" and select a COM port that comes from your Bluetooth configuration. On your PC you should have some Bluetooth ports - if not create one. The port must be "Incoming" or "Server" type (name depends on software).

On your device you don't start ActiveSync. You open the Bluetooth manager and pair the devices from there.

If the PC configuration is correct you will see the ActiveSync icon spinning briefly when you enter the PIN.

Then you go to ActiveSync and select the "Connect via Bluetooth" option.

Again, the COM port on ActiveSync is the port on your PC that accepts incoming connections. This is not the COM port on your device - you don't need to do anything with the COM port on your device.

What COM ports you have on your PC for Bluetooth? What are the names? And what's the COM port on your ActiveSync?

Other things to check:

- if using an external Bluetooth adapter make sure you are not using a USB Hub
- if using any software firewall make sure it is not blocking the Bluetooth stack

Correct, there isn't an "ActiveSync service" on the device, only an "ActiveSync client". As I said there's nothing on the device to be changed. The configuration is on the PC side, but the pairing must be initiated from the device side.
