View Full Version : Shameless M-Day Ploy - HELP!

May 7th, 2005, 07:46 PM
OK, I'm trying to engage my wife in 21C Tech. I wanted to have a Dell Axim X50v control MC11 from a Dell desktop (Xenon 28, XPPsp2) that has Bluetooth.

Have installed MC11, no prob...
Installed NetRemote Pro...
Started MC11 Server, port 80
Started Media Bridge, port 80
Bluetooth sees the Axim, Autosync works
Netremote on Axim runs BUT....

Says it can't connect to Current Host.

Tools->Prop->Plugins->MediaBridge-> instance has port 80 (-10)

What am I doing wrong? When I plug the Axim into it's cradle (USB to Desktop) everything works. It has to be the Bluetooth...why can't Netremote on Axim see the MC11 server on the Desktop machine?

I have literally spent all afternoon tring to get this to work...times running out!

Any help out there - parker

Did you follow the steps in the Music Guide on the support page...?

If that is not working, can you connect via wifi. BT can be a PIA.

Good luck ;)

BT can be a PIA.

Don't be so inaccurate, Mike BT is a PIA for anything else than a handsfree or a GPS. Period. Believe me, I have tried with all my three PPCs (different generations, different brands), and I have given them all up.

Hi Parker -
If you open Internet Explorer, can you go to port 80 on the machine via the web browser? You should get a simple web interface. If that works, it might be a bluetooth latency issue.
