How can I connect local pda's to a windows 2000 terminal server?

Also, we have WySE thin clients. Does anyone know how to hook up PDA's on them?

We use thin clients but haven't used the serial port on them.
I am trying to eliminate computers in the office, but the only thing holding me back is the people who use PDA's. I think I can install the docking stations on the thin clients but am unsure how I would sync Microsoft Outlook that way.

If the users are using Microsoft Windows devices, then you can have them sync over the web to Exchange, directly.  This would require Microsoft Mobile Information Server. The server is designed to work with both PDA's and Smartphones etc.

Or just Exchange 2003. But the other problem is, how do they sync their pda with no way to connect the device to the internet?

I have a Treo 650, and have just migrated my Windows desktops to a Terminal Server 2003 thin client.  I am trying to find a solution to allow a synch with Outlook 2003 while connecting to a terminal server remote desktop connection.  Can this be done, and if so how?  I have not been able to get it to work.
