ActiveSync 4.0 Issue Alert

This issue alert just came out from Microsoft with a request for publication. Here it is:

From: Windows Mobile Update
Subject: ActiveSync 4.0 Issue Alert

Specifically, some users of ActiveSync® 4.0 have reported challenges when using the USB connection of their personal computer to connect to a device with Windows Mobile 5.0. In many cases, these challenges are likely caused by interoperability with desktop firewall applications or applications that manage network traffic. These applications appear to conflict with the TCP traffic between a device and the PC.

An update for ActiveSync is scheduled to be available in late November, but customers may also resolve the issue manually immediately by visiting visiting
