We use Microsoft ActiveSync to synchronize wireless mobile devices with Exchange.
We import our own cert and enter the exchange hostname in the mobile devices registry (HKLM\Comm\Tcpip\Hosts). It works fine if Windows Mobile 5 or 6 is installed.
Just now we have got an new mobile device (htc) with Windows Mobile 6.1 and the configuration is the same as before, but it doesn't work.
It seems that ActiveSync doesn't use the registry entry for our host. If I enter the IP address in the ActiveSync server configuration I can see the firewall access. Otherwise, if I use the hostname I can't see any firewall access.
Moreover, if I enter the url https://
<server name> I get a 404 error, but I get an answer if I use https://
I have tried e.g. the tool HostsFileEditPro.exe, but the result is the same.
What's different in WM 6.1? Has someone a solution for that?
