I have purchased an old Cassioppeia E11 which works fine but am unable to Windows CE 2.1 to interact with it. When trying to establish a connection I get this message " cannot start serial communications services. The reomte access service (RAS) is failing to start for an unknown reason.

Close all applications, disconnect the mobile device serial cable and restart the desktop computer. If this error continues to occur, see communications troubleshooter in Windows CE services help." Well I have looked at that and it is as clear as mud. The automatic loading program has selected me port 3 which used to be for a dial-up modem that is still in the computer but unused, I have told it to ignore that in the settings manager bit of the CE configuration program but it still shows the modem in the port setting.

Does anyone have any ideas? All I want to do is connect via the serial port, I am not bothered about going online. I really only want to load one program on the thing?

Hi,
Try getting ActiveSync 3.5 which supports synchronization of Windows CE 2.0 devices.
