  • Page 37 HP Jornada. The name can be anything you choose (up to 15 alphanumeric characters, no spaces) and should provide an easy way for you to identify your HP Jornada. The description could be the make and model of the device (for example, HP Jornada 680 H/PC) or a property control number.
  • Page 38 HP Jornada. The Connection Status dialog box may provide information about the problem. You should also confirm that both the desktop PC and the HP Jornada are communicating at the same baud rate. To check the baud rate on your desktop PC, click Communications on the File menu of the Mobile Devices window.
  • Page 39 After you have established a partnership, you have several options for connecting your device to your desktop partner in the future. You can set Windows CE Services to automatically detect your HP Jornada and establish a connection whenever you connect the sync cable. Using the COM port on your desktop PC is the easiest way for you to connect, unless you use that port for other peripherals.
  • Page 40 In the Connection Status dialog box, tap Disconnect. You can use the infrared port on your HP Jornada to connect to a desktop or notebook PC that is running Windows 95 (or later). Once connected, you can transfer files and synchronize Pocket Outlook data and e-mail messages just as if you had connected using a sync cable or a docking cradle.
  • Page 41 On your HP Jornada Start menu, point to Programs, point to Communications, and then tap PC Link. In some cases, you may need to connect your HP Jornada to a desktop PC other than your partner.

Windows CE Services with ActiveSync enables you to synchronize data between your HP Jornada and desktop PC, so the names you add to your Contacts database and the appointments you add to your Calendar while traveling can be automatically updated on your desktop PC when you return.
  • Page 44 You can set ActiveSync either to synchronize automatically each time you connect your HP Jornada to your desktop PC or to synchronize continu- ously whenever the synchronized information changes, for as long as the computers are connected. You can also synchronize at any moment by choosing Synchronize Now from the Tools menu in the Mobile Devices window.
  • Page 45 If the same item (for example, an appointment or a task) has been modified on both the desktop PC and on the HP Jornada, ActiveSync will indicate that a Synchronization conflict has occurred. When the Resolve Conflicts dialog box appears, you can either resolve the conflict by selecting one of the items to replace or you can ignore the conflict, leaving the data on both computers unchanged.
  • Page 46 • Messages on the two computers are linked. So, for instance, if you delete a message on your HP Jornada, it will also be deleted on your desktop PC the next time you synchronize. • Messages in the Outbox folder on your HP Jornada are transferred to the Outbox on your desktop PC and then sent from that program.

  • Page 51 Device Detected dialog box, click Synchronize to establish a partnership and synchronize your data. If your data is stored on an HP 100/200LX Palmtop PC or an HP OmniGo Organizer, you must first transfer the data to your desktop PC. Use the Hewlett-Packard PIM Translation Utility (for HP devices only) to import the data into Schedule+ 7.0a on your desktop PC.
  • Page 52 Insert the HP Jornada Handheld PC compact disc into the CD-ROM drive on your desktop PC. On the main menu of the HP Jornada Handheld PC compact disc installation screen, click HP PIM Translation Utility. You can translate only one file at a time.
