Hi, I'm trying to setup a Bluetooth ActiveSync connection with my iPAQ Pocket PC.

i've been following this guide:
http://www.geekzone.co.nz/content.asp?ContentId=2149

Everything worked perfectly yesterday, BUT today:
when i try connecting, i get:

"Service Discovery was unsuccessful
The requested service is not running on this device. Please make sure the service is enabled on the device, or select another one to continue".
The PDA can see the computer, but it just can't "find the service"

My computer can view the PPC & its contents no problem via the XTND BlueManager software (which is what i'm using).

I'm positive I've followed the steps in the guide correctly.

Also, right now I can't connect via USb either. And all the COM ports disappeared in ActiveSync, except for COM1.

So can anyone help me w/ this? I'm pretty stumped. I didn't change / install anything on my comp from yesterday.

thxs.

It sounds like a software problem - check that the COM port you created is still there.

Hi,

Yes, the COM port is still there:

Also, when i first start up my comp (after a reboot), activesync DOES find COM port3, but when i try to select it:

then it disappears.

thxs!

edit: i can now connect to my desktop using usb, as the activesync on PPC wasn't set to allow connecting using USB, so that problem is solved (but of course, bluetooth problem isn't yet).

Perhaps another program is using the COM port? That's the only way for ActiveSync to not see it...

But....as I said, i tried yesterday, it worked perfectly!!

I don't think i was running anything different yesterday either..

if there is conflicting software though, how do i find it? i've tried exiting almost al programs in the taskbar, but didn't help.

But since yesterday, have you rebooted the PC?

Another thing, check firewalls... And make sure the Bluetooth adapter is using a USB port, not a USB Hub (if this is a USB adapter).

Yes, i've rebooted my PC (as a matter of fact, I've shut it down)
I've tried re-booting multiple times, but it doesn't help.


I've disabled my Firewall & Antivirus (Trend-Micro PC-Cillin Internet Security 07). (I'm pretty sure I had it running when it did work before tho).

My Bluetooth Adapter is plugged into a USB hub, but 1) it was working before and 2) activesync can't open the COM port, so, as u mentioned, it might be software problem.

Also, the day that it worked, I had just installed the software, after not using my Bluetooth adapter for a while..
