I have a CSR dongle on XPSP2 I think I am just running the Microsoft BT Stack (how do i tell?).

I had an HTC harrier on Activesync 3.7/3.8 sycning perfectly over bluetooth.

Now trying to do the same with AS 4.0 and the Apache, but no joy. The apache can pair up okay, it can even use the computer as a handsfree (think using PC as a Bluetooth 'car' kit), and can access the PC as a 'serial' port. But no activesync.

I have toyed around for a while, and read some guides, but still cant get it happening.

Any ideas?

AS4.0 is set to allow serial port connections on COM6

First to identify the software: right-click the Bluetooth icon. If you see an "Advanced Configuration" item select it and a dialog will open. The last tab is a System Information and the software version will be there. If you don't have this, then you're probably running the Windows stack. But this doesn't really matter in this case anyway...

Next, to ActiveSync. Make sure ActiveSync is using the Incoming (or "server") COM port. This is the most important thing to do.

Now delete the Bluetooth pairing from your Apache. Create this pairing again from your Apache. After you enter the PIN it will connect to your computer, and discover services.

If one of the services is SPP (Serial Port) it will automatically connect to probe and see if there's an ActiveSync program on the other side. You will see the Bluetooth icon on your computer flashing to indicate a connection and ActiveSync will spin a little bit and then stop.

This indicates all the configuration is ok. To start ActiveSync you have to open the program on your Apache, and tap the Connect via Bluetooth option.

These instructions are valid for Bluetooth ActiveSync with TNZ Apache or PPC-6700.
