Chapter 3 ActiveSync
To communicate with various host devices, install Microsoft ActiveSync (version 4.5 or higher) on the host
computer. Use ActiveSync to synchronize information on the MC65 with information on the host computer.
Changes made on the MC65 or host computer appear in both places after synchronization.
NOTE When an MC65 with Windows Mobile 6.5 is connected to a host computer and an ActiveSync connection is
made, the WLAN radio (if applicable) is disabled. This is a Microsoft security feature to prevent connection to
two networks at the same time.
Allows working with mobile computer-compatible host applications on the host computer. ActiveSync
replicates data from the MC65 so the host application can view, enter, and modify data on the MC65.
Synchronizes files between the MC65 and host computer, converting the files to the correct format.
Backs up the data stored on the MC65. Synchronization is a one-step procedure that ensures the data is
always safe and up-to-date.
Copies (rather than synchronizes) files between the MC65 and host computer.
Controls when synchronization occurs by selecting a synchronization mode, e.g., set to synchronize
continually while the MC65 is connected to the host computer, or set to only synchronize on command.
Selects the types of information to synchronize and control how much data is synchronized.
To install ActiveSync on the host computer, download version 4.5 or higher from the Microsoft web site at
http://www.microsoft.com. Refer to the installation instructions included with the ActiveSync software.
