    Syncing Windows Mobile 2005 PDA via Bluetooth

    I am having alot of difficulty trying to find help with syncing the contacts
    on my Windows Mobile 2005 (WM5) Cingular 8125 (HTC Wizard) with Linux (Gentoo
    2.6 kernel) in KDE 3.5.5 via bluetooth.

    I am able to OBEX push fine and I have been able to the mobile to
    list "ActiveSync" as an available service for the bluetooth doogle, but when
    I go to ActiveSync on the mobile and select "Connect via bluetooth" I get:
    "Cannot find an existing Bluetooth partnership with a PC that supports
    ActiveSync. Would you like to set up a partnership now?". If I click yes it
    just continously finds "ActiveSync" as a service but will not connect to the

    My mobile requires a password but I am unsure how to inform linux of this,
    regardless though no connection seems to even start in order to begin the
    authentication part. I still new to bluetooth in Linux but I have tried many
    differant tools and protocols.

    Tried using Raki, but nothing seems to happen except it states dccm is
    running. I have made sure that I run the
    command "dund --listen --activesync --msdun call dun".

    I have also tried MultiSync trying IrMC Mobile Device and it finds my device
    but says "No IrMC synchronization" and does not provide a Channel. I have
    tried testing channels 0-9 but all failed. I also tried SynCE Plugin in
    MultiSync but I am unsure how to inform it to use bluetooth.

    I am not sure if there is another program I should use, or if I am using these
    programs correctly. Any help would be appreciated.
