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.
note:HP recommends using the most current version of ActiveSync to connect the handheld/pocket device to a desktop PC. Click here to go to the Microsoft ActiveSync download page to get the latest version of ActiveSync..
