Is it possible to sync the sharepoint calendar with a Pocket PC device using Activesync?

I need/would like to be able to synchronise the Sharepoint calendar in SBS2003 with the calendar on a Pocket PC device.
This needs to be done preferably through one of the workstations rather than by connecting to the server.
Is it possible?

What is the OS on the PPC?  

It can be synched wirelessly or via PC connection, but the how-to depends on the OS.

Okay, then all you need to do is link the SharePoint Calendar to Outlook (use the Link to Outlook button from the Calendar's main view while logged in on the workstation that you are linking to).

Then use ActiveSync 3.8 to sync to the PocketPC.  You will just need to select that particular folder to sync with.

Thanks Jeff, however....

When I  click the "Link to Outlook" I get:

"Outlook can't add the requested sharepoint services folder. Contact the windows sharepoint site services administrator."

OK I have now linked to Outlook OK but whenever I try to sync the Calendar it always syncs to the default user calender and not the Sharepoint one and there seems to be no option to change that.

Yeah, with multiple folders you may need a 3rd party add-on:
