MDaemon 12.0.x: How to enable ActiveSync on your MDaemon server

WARNING: The first synchronization with the ActiveSync server will be a one-way sync from the server to the device. This sync will wipe your existing contact and calendar data to replace it with your MDaemon data.

Please ensure you have a complete back up of your device before synchronizing for the first time. You can consult your device’s manual for instructions on how to back up your device.

On the MDaemon server:

  1. Click Setup
  2. Click Web, Sync, & IM Services…
  3. Click ActiveSync
  4. From the drop-down box, select the domain for which you wish to enable ActiveSync.
    (Note: You can select Default to enable ActiveSync for all domains)
  5. Enable this option: Enable ActiveSync Server
  6. Acknowledge the MDaemon dialog box and click Yes (Note: See Additional Comments below)
  7. MDaemon will request a trial key if this is the first time you are enabling the server.
  8. Click Ok

Additional Comments

Note: When you enable ActiveSync for MDaemon the first time, it will operate for 60 days on a trial basis.  There is a one-time license fee available, if you wish to continue using it.  You can acquire the license key from www.altn.com or your local distributor/reseller.

Additional: ActiveSync is a web-service extension that only works on ports 80 (http) and 443 (https).  ActiveSync will not work unless your web server (either WorldClient's built-in web server or another, such as IIS) is running on port 80 and/or port 443.  This is an ActiveSync implementation requirement.  If you wish to bind WorldClient’s web server to these to these ports, follow the steps in this article: KBA-02289.
