NOTE If you must log onto a server, such as your company’s Virtual Private Network (VPN), you may receive a message from ActiveSync telling you it is unable to synchronize. You must first log onto the server for ActiveSync to synchronize.
When the Synchronization Options screen displays, place a checkmark in the box next to the items you want to synchronize between your HP iPAQ and your computer, and then click Next.
The Synchronization Setup Wizard starts synchronizing the items you checked.
NOTE: If ActiveSync does not begin synchronizing, start it manually: On your personal computer, open ActiveSync by selecting the Start menu > Programs > Microsoft ActiveSync > Sync.
