I have a problem with a laptop (Compaq Evo 800c + Windows XP) and activesync.
The laptop have bluetooth com's from Com11 to Com16 and i think that activesync uses only Com4 and Com5. How can i configure activesync with bluetooth?

Thanks and sorry by my english.

actually there are bluetooth com ports from 5-16 in the device manager, however when i used activesync, it only let me select ports 5-9 but in the bluetooth manager, i can only have access to ports 11-16???

thus, I cannot let the activesync take place in the same port that the bluetooth manager is accepting connections in.

Solution is simple on the laptops...

Turns out I had the same problem, checked my modems list in control panels and discovered that any modem card that has ever been in the laptop gets assigned forever a com port...

Since my laptop is a corporate one, there had been at least 8 other modem cards in it...

I deleted all the modems, even the internal one, rebooted, laptop found internal modem

Then loaded bluetooth software...and...serial port started on COM 8....

I am loving it...

Pass it on...
