I'm trying to get my Cingular (AT&T) Blackjack Smartphone to sync up with Outlook. In the XP days I used a program called Activesync. With Vista I now use Windows Mobile Device Center (WMDC).
I'm also running Microsoft Windows Live OneCare for security.
I couldn't get WMDC to properly sync up with my Blackjack until I discovered that I had to go into OneCare and disable my firewall. When I do that everything works fine. Not wanting to keep the firewall down I went into the OneCare Firewall tab and clicked on Firewall Connection Tool. From there I selected:
ActiveSync/Windows Mobile Device Center - synchronize my mobile devices with my computer
Checking this didn't fix my problem. I then tried to enable all the choices in the Firewall Connection Tool thinking I could get it to work this way and then take them out one by one until I figured out exactly what I needed. With all the choices checked (Network Discovery, File & Print Sharing, Xbox 360, etc.) it still wouldn't work.
My question is, does anyone know the ports I need to keep open to make this work? It is possible in OneCare to set a specific port or range of ports.
