    ActiveSync 3.1 on FC5


    Trying to install ActiveSync 3.1, it installs just fine but at the detection screen is says Com1-4 'not available' (I'm trying to sync with a serial cable), IR not installed (true), and USB 'not supported' (thats ok I'm using serial). How do I make this application able to use the serial port? I've got the device plugged in but it doesn't recognize it, just saying that the com port is unavailable.

    What kind of device are you trying to sync? A PDA? Are you sure there's not a way to sync it using native Linux software?

    It's a Compaq Aero 8000, an older wince device. AFAIK it doesn't support syncing natively with linux. It runs Win Ce 2.0/Pro; it's a sub-mini laptop design. I've tried activesync 3.0 and 3.1 but for some reason neither or them seem to recognize that I have any com ports at all.

    Bump? I'd rather not use VMware just to run activesync, the winedb states this app is compatible.
