PocketPC Emulator can't sync with desktop
Posted on 2004-04-14
I currently have the PocketPC 2003 emulator installed on a computer and I need to be able to syncronize with it (for obvious reasons) but I have a problem, this computer only has 1 comm port.
As far as I can see, you can only create a partnership with a handheld by directly connecting it to a PC, and once you do that you can sync via network etc, but you must make that physical connection at least once. You can do this with the emulators by using a serial cable and connecting it to both comm1 and comm2 ports, having the PC listen on one and the handheld emulator on the other. This will allow them to sync, create a partnership, etc. Once that is done, you can get rid of the cable and sync through the network.
My problem is, this computer only has one serial port onboard, and it does not have any connectors on the motherboard to simply connect a ribbon cable serial port too, which means I cannot connect them through the method above.
Does anyone know how to somehow link comm1 and comm2 together so they can talk to eachother without having a cable connect them (software based obviously) or even how to create a partnership through the network?
