When I connect my iPAC to my PC, activesync starts up automatically (that's OK of course) and also tries to connect to internet (that's not OK for me, it's annoying). How do I prevent activesync from automatically connecting to the internet? I just want to synchronise and copy some files from my iPAC to my PC.

Thanks in advance.

ActiveSync is probably connecting to provide Internet access to your iPAQ. You can try this: with the iPAQ connected, open Options and uncheck the Internet PassThrough option.

If you want your iPAQ to access the Internet while in the cradle, then you have to check this box again.

Thanks for your reply. I still can't solve the problem though.

I have a different Internet PassThrough option. I can choose 'Work' and 'Internet' here. I also looked if some application on the iPAC was trying to connect to internet, so I made sure no applications were running. This didn't help either.

Could it be that Activesync is looking for updates on the internet?

Other example of things looking for Internet connectivity when performing an ActiveSync: Avantgo channels update, WorldMate.

Excuse for my ignorance, but what are AdvantGo channels? I can't find anything about it in the help.

You might not be using it then... Avantgo is a program that downloads small version of websites, formatted for the PDA (called channels). Then you can read these channels when the PDA is not connected. Read more at Avantgo.

I have ZoneAlarm installed. When Activesync starts up, ZoneAlarm asks if it is OK to let Activesync access internet. If I answer No, then Activesync won't work! If I answer Yes, Activesync will work and tries to establish an internet connection; I cancel that and everything works fine after that.

Another strange thing is, that when I press the Explore-button on Activesync on the PC, ZoneAlarm asks if it is OK for the Explorer to access internet! If I answer No, it is the same thing again: the Explorer won't display files on the iPAC.

I wonder what's going on underneath.... :)

ActiveSync does use TCP/IP even for communication with other programs inside your computer - that's why Zone Alarm complains...

Thanks again for your reply!

I have search the registry on my PC to find any clues how to prevent Activesync from connecting to the internet. I couldn't find much however.

But I found AvantGo on my PC. However, I can't start any programs or so. Is there a way to set AvantGo so that Activesync or AvantGo won't automatically connect to the internet?
