So I bought a cheap and cheeful USB 2 hub with built in Bluetooth, it seems really great except that the included Bluetooth Soleil software doesnt directly offer the ActiveSync profile, they claim it should work fine over a standard shared Port. So I set up Activesync to look at the SSP port. Now this is where I think my problem starts, I cannot get the XDA to bring up the serial conection. Activesync in 2005 is far to clever to let me tell it to open a specific COM Port, it wants to look for a Blutooth device with the Activesync profile, and without it, it wont play. If I raise the connection from the blue soleil software, activesync starts to connect on the PC, but after 20secs gives up and tells me that the Mobile device was not recognised.
I have read that activesync will only work if the device initiates the serial connection, can anyone confirm if this is true ? Has anyone managed to get activesync to work with the Blue Soleil softare ?
