MS ActiveSync


I have upgraded to version 3 and I can’t get my phone to sync anymore via ActiveSync.
I remember having the same problem with version 2 of CFP but can not find the post about it in the forums anymore.

Any help would be greatfully received.


Create a new Global Rule and put it over the other ones:
Action: Allow
Protocol: TCP
Direction: In
Source IP: Any or you could use your trusted zone
Remote IP: Any
Source port: Any
Remote port: Choose A set of ports(port 990,999,5678,5721,26675)

Here’s Microsoft’s article about ActiveSync:


Hi Ragwing,

Thanks for your reply.

I forgot to mention that I keep getting a firewall alert when I plug the phone in saying rapimgr.exe can not be recognised. It is trying to remote to - udp on port 5679.
If I click on allow this request and remember or treat as trusted program etc it keeps reappearing no matter how many times you allow it. I have gone into the rules and allowed it everything and it still comes up. Deleted all the rules and started again after reboot and the same.

I have set up the rule as you suggested above.

Any help would be great
