I cant be the only one to Sync via more then one type of connection?

Discussion in 'ActiveSync' started by Scott Townsend, Jun 9, 2005.

  1. I've been trying to get some answers on syncing with WiFi, USB, Bluetooth,
    etc. is there any way to switch between them automatically?? I just want to
    sync with the fasted connection available, USB, though when I leave the
    office I want it to know its not connected to the cradle and switch to WiFi
    if its got a known network, or GPRS or, or?

    Someone else has to be using more then one method to Sync?

    I've got a HP 5555 with built-in WIFI, I'm using ActiveSync 3.8 on the system
    and I can pull my ppc off of the usb cradle, turn on my wifi card, get a lan
    ip address from my wireless router, then sync up with my computer (without
    changing the default connection speed on my ppc) in a matter of seconds. As
    mentioned, this is done without going into ActiveSync on the ppc and changing
    the default connection settings. What kind of setup do you
    have...etc...etc... you should be able to do the same?

  3. The connection settings control this... all options you have can be
    checked and left.

    However, network connections (wifi, and bluetooth connection _to the
    network_) must be initiated on the device itself by starting activesync
    and manually initiating a connection...

    This is to preclude unintended sync connections when connected to the
    network for other uses.

    If something is not automatically connecting, please post the specifics
    of that problem.

    Does this mean that even if I have configured a sync schedule that for
    example tries to activesync every hour with my exchange server it will
    allways use GPRS unless I manually switch on the WIFI.

    Surley there must be a way of swtching on wifi "automagically" as it eats
    power so no one in their right mind would leave it on for extended periods.

    If the O/S doesn't support this natively is there any way of scripting and
    scheduling a wifi connection / activesync ?
