HP Jornada Pocket or Handheld PC - Synchronizing with an Infrared Connection
The infrared port on the HP Jornada provides a convenient way to connect to an infrared (IrDA) equipped PC without using a cable or cradle. Many notebook computers have built-in infrared ports. However, you may need to install and configure an infrared port on a desktop PC. To install the port, follow the computer manufacturer’s instructions.
More information about infrared drivers for Windows 95, 98, Me, or 2000 is available on the Microsoft (R) mobile devices Web site (infrared connection is not available for Windows NT). 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.
Setting up synchronization via infrared
The Help tool in Microsoft ActiveSync walks through the process of setting up the connection via infrared. ActiveSync should already be installed on the desktop or laptop PC before beginning the following steps:
On the desktop or laptop PC, open Microsoft ActiveSync.
Click Help and select Microsoft ActiveSync Help.
Double-click Connecting a device to a desktop computer.
Double-click Connect to ActiveSync using infrared.
Under To use an infrared connection, click Step 1.
Follow the steps displayed in Help.
Troubleshooting the connection
If the connection does not work after following the instructions above, visit Microsoft's online ActiveSync troubleshooter or check the help files located in ActiveSync.
