I have no problems with firewalls

1. If you set 'localhost' or '' as a sever name, your application deployed to a mobile device will try to connect to itself (not to your desktop machine). So please set the IP address of your machine with the MySQL database in the connection string.

2. Note that some synchronization tool (e.g., Microsoft ActiveSync) should be used even if you work with some emulator (e.g., USA Windows mobile 5.0 Pocket PC R2 Emulator). Before deployment make cradle to the emulator you want to use via Device Emulator Manager (the Tools menu in Visual Studio). After cradle the ActiveSync icon in the tray should become green (indication that synchronization is successful).

3. If the problem persists, please tell us the version of your dotConnect for MySQL Mobile. You can see the version in the Tools | MySQL Mobile | About menu of Visual Studio.
