activesync working on virtualbox?

Postby kage on Mon Nov 10, 2008 5:46 pm

Hi there

My name is Karl and i'm new to Mint. I'm very impressed how good and simple everything works. I'm not new to linux. Worked the past 2 years with opensuse before that with Mepis and Mandrake.

Mint feel so good that i even want to delete xp on my laptop and install Mint sole!
BUT! i'm addicted to my pda. A HP rx5935 pocket pc with wm5. I therefore need activesync to sync and install updates and new programs with my pda.
Virtualbox is a very good program but i can't get activesync to work with xp on virtualbox.

I googled a lot the past few weeks and tried a lot of how to's but didn't find one that worked for me.

So, my main question is: does someone heave a working activesync with a pocket pc on xp/virtualbox?

And offcourse: how did you achieve that?

Thanks in advance!

Linux has many palm sync programs. If you need activesync, well how about enabling USB passthrough in VirtualBox. If your pocketpc uses comm port, get a usb adapter rather than the motherboard, unless you can find a way to patch it through as well. Install XP in virtual box. Install guest additions. profit.

Thank you for you reaction.
All you mentioned is tried by me. I googled if i could find anybody who has a working activesync in xp thats guest on virualbox. I tried and tried and looked on the net but no working solution.

So my main question is: does anybody has a working activesync connection on xp as guest on virtualbox?
