there is an option in activesync on the pc to 'enable passthrough internet', this needs to be ticked.

If it still doesnt work, try disabling all firewall software, then try. If it works then, you will need to configure your firewall correctly.

Either way, the moment you have tested it, and found an answer, you must enable your firewall software again,

(Zonealarm, TPF, Windows Firewall, etc etc)

Also, check that the Internet PassThrough option is set "Connect to Internet".

If you are trying to open a website and receive an error message, on your Pocket PC open File Explorer, browse to \Windows and tap on welcome.exe... Follow the instructions and soft reset the Pocket PC, then try again.

Last, I recommend you download vxutil (www.cam.com) and use it to PING a known site to see if your connection is really working.
