I went through troubleshooting and used hyperterminal as suggested to test basic communications.

Hyperterminal said "could not open com port"
All com ports are working according to device manager. no conflicts. com ports set up in bios to match resources in device manager.

baud rates on computer and pda are set to match. pda doesn't connect. I don't know if I'm missing something.

Details

Win 95B
Windows CE Services 2.1
Dial-Up Networking update 1.4
(on PDA) Win CE 2.0
(PDA CPU) MIPS R4000
PDA: Everex Freestyle Palm-size PC

If you need more info, just ask.

Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.
