Will PDA's particularily a Toshiba e800 Pocket PC connect to a https:// website?



I don't know why but my PDA will not connect to a https website. It gives me the message, "The page you are looking for cannot be found"


I have tried different downloads and have been unsuccessful. I have also contacted Toshiba and they tell me its a software problem. I'm wondering if it may be a setting that i have messed up within my PDA.


I am looking for any advice from anyone at this point.

Thank you so much....

I saw your previous post - I will delete it since duplicate posts are not allowed.

Is this happening to all sites or just secure sites? You can try this: open File Explorer on your Pocket PC, browse to \Windows and tap on welcome.exe. Follow the instructions, and when finished soft reset the device and try connecting again.

Also you say something about downloading updates from Microsoft? Have you installed these? There is no update for Pocket Internet Explorer - at least not the one in Windows Mobile 2003 and newer, so it may have caused more harm than good.

Check that your connection is not blocking https. What are you using, Wi-Fi? If this is the case, are you sure your router allows https traffic?

If you are using Bluetooth or ActiveSync, are you sure the PC doesn't have a personal firewall blocking https?

Thanks for the response...

I am using Wi Fi and all web browsing seams to be going well except when I try to browse and page that begins with https:

I am using ActiveSync and I am unsure if there is a personal firewall involved. Do you know how I can check that?

I have checked my wi fi and it is working properly through my router/ modem. So I doubt that is the case.

I have been reading other blogs and some people are mentioning the same problems. They have mentioned programs like Opera 5, Grandrapid, and Netbook to bypass IE to browse https: websites like banking, or anything that requires a username/logon. Are you familiar with any of these downloads?

Thank you for the help

The question about ActiveSync was just if you use it to browse - but you are using Wi-Fi, so that's fine.

These programs you see are not for Pocket PC. I think you will need to hard reset your e800 to restore it to the original factory condition - then reinstall any programs you have and try again.
