activesync assigns an ip address to the pocket pc and vice versa

I basically have a java app that I want to connect with my pc. It will be connecting through activesync but it never seems to be able to find the ip address to connect to.. If I try and ping it it says destination unreachable..

any ideas on how to communicate my PPC with my pc via tcpip?

ive tried vxutil and the ip address for the pda through activesync seems to be
and the gateway

but pinging either of these ips doesnt work
