On an ealier Post, it was stated that the BoB could not be used for Active Sync, as it does not do full RS232.
In the current manual, on page 82 (7.3.4) It has the Pinouts, which have all 9 Pins used on the DB-9.
On Page 68 (5.51) It shows all the Requirements of the RS232 Null modem cable and connections, which are identical to those listed in the BoB for the Full EIA-232 Pinouts (7.3.4), Also, on the Output Cable pinout (Cable A) it shows all 9 Pins used for Full RS232 Serial Connection. Can the COM3 (Full EIA-232) now be used for active sync, if all 9 Pins are connected, as I am unable to achieve connection. The PC-Connections option in Control Panel only has the option of USB COM5. I am able to Send and receive data via COM3 of TREQ to COM1 of PC using the Miniterm. Incominging signals of CTS,DSR and CD are all RED.
Thankyou

Stuart,

Earlier versions of the TREQ terminal and break-out-box did not support a full serial port. The current version does, as you have identified.

An ActiveSync connection can be established over the full serial port (COM3) if an internal GPRS modem is not included as an option for your TREQ. This is because the TREQ automatically detects the presence of the internal modem, and routes COM3 to the modem instead of the break-out-box connector.

COM3 is configured by default to be a dial-up type network connection. The reason for this is to support the internal modem when present, or external modems connected to COM3. The type can be changed via the following registry value:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Drivers\BuiltIn\Serial3\Unimodem] "DeviceType"=dword:1
DeviceType is set to 1 by default. Use the \HardDisk\bin\RegEditCE.exe program on the TREQ to set the DeviceType registry value to 0 in order to configure COM3 as a direct connection. Wait a few seconds for the registry changed to be flushed to non-volatile storage (hive), then reboot the TREQ.

One the TREQ has rebooted, go to the control panel, network and dial-up connections dialog. Create a new direct connection for COM3, and configure the baud rate to be 115,200. Give the connection a name.

Open the PC Connections dialog from the control panel and change the selected connection from USB COM5 to the name of the new connection that was just created. Also select the "Allow connection with desktop computer when device is attached" check box.

Connect the break-out-box COM3 connector to your PC via a NULL modem cable, with the connection pin-out as outlined in the TREQ user guide. You should now be able to establish an ActiveSync connection over COM3.

Hi Brian

Changing the DWORD registry worked a treat.
Thankyou for your quick response, ActiveSync is working like a charm.

Cheers
Stuart
