    I was having some issues getting the Windows Mobile Device Center to connect to my Mobile Device. I checked around the forum and could not find much on the topic. In order to get this to work you need to do the following:

    Control Panel
    Windows Firewall
    Advanced Settings
    Inbound Rules
    Create a new "Inbound Rule" and name it Windows Mobile Device Center
    Click on the "Protocols and Ports" tab
    Protocol Type - TCP
    Local Port - Specific Ports, 990, 999, 5678, 5679, 5721, 26675
    Remote port - All Ports
    LEAVE ALL OTHER OPTIONS AT THEIR DEFAULT VALUE
    Click Apply
    Click OK

    Disconnect and Reconnect Mobile Device
    Create Partnership etc....
