Can A Palm III or an IBM WorkPad Connect to Windows NT 4.0?

Can A Palm III or an IBM WorkPad Connect to Windows NT 4.0?

Can A Palm III or an IBM WorkPad Connect to Windows NT 4.0?

(OP)
Has anyone connected an Palm IIIC to an IBM ThinkPad T20 running Windows NT 4.0 service pack 6?  My desktop folks gave up on me today. I like the use of the Palm, but it is a limited when you can't sync.

I'll purchase an IBM Workpad if would be possible to connect to NT.  However, the same folks said they have not connected one to NT, only Windows 2000.  

Am I being fool-hardy thinking a PDA and NT can work together?  The Palm web site did not help nore did IBMs.

Thank you.

Absolutely (we use a few thousand ThinkPads and Palms under NT4)!  I'm assuming you have the serial cradle rather than the USB.  The biggest problem on notebook computers is usally a lack of resources for proper Com port configuration.  Through the ThinkPad Configuration Utility make sure your infrared is disabled, and your Com port is enabled and on a different port than your modem. Then ust punch the physical Com port into the Palm HotSync utility.

Hi Doug - we don't actually - we're using pretty out-of-the-box PIM stuff...
