When using PC Suite over Bluetooth it uses three com ports, one for incoming traffic and two for outgoing. Your Sitecom driver might not have allocated enough Com ports to support this, so letís first make sure these Com ports have been allocated and are available for ActiveSync.


Open the Sitecom Advanced Configuration window (e.g. by right-clicking the Bluetooth icon in the task bar).

Click the Local services tab

Click Add Serial Service

If the Bluetooth Properties Window comes up right away, there were already Com ports allocated to Bluetooth that you can use. There might be more Com ports to choose from, select the one you prefer.

If at first other Windows pop-up (System Properties, etc.), a new virtual Com port is allocated to the BT driver. In this case there will be only one Com port to choose from.

In both cases, Mark Startup Automatically.

Remember both the Com port and the Service Name allocated to the new entry.

Click OK

Click the Client Applications tab

Click Add COM port

The same process takes place as with the Local services tab, click OK when finished (this time you donít have to remember the Com port and service name allocated).

Click Add COM port again to add yet another Com port.

Click OK when finished adding the Com port.
