Active sync can be initiated from your smart phone device.
I setup my Cingular 8525 with the follow method. I had a data plan for wireless, but it will work for wifi as well.
Launch Active Sync (under programs) Menu -> Configure Server
Key in the following: Server Address: (FQDN) ( ) Choose SSL or not
<Next> User Name: (xxxxxx) Password: (XXXXX) Domain:
i.e. Username JoeUser@company.com The above would be: U:JoeUser PW: XXXXX Domain: Company.com
