I keep seeing posts about trying to sync with OZ, I know nothing about sync'ing as it's not something I've done for a long, long, long time.

I'd like to create a doc which lists the options and drawbacks of the various methods.

I wonder if those of you who do, or who have tried and failed to varying degrees could post to say what does & doesn't work. Please include - your PC OS, your OZ version (& settings in the security applet if applicable), connection method, the sync software (with an URL might be nice ;-)), what does & doesn't work in the sync process, etc.

Many thanks,


Simon

On my Collie is Openzaurus 3.5.3 (Hentges version w/ cardfs).

On my Desktop is Debian Sid running KDE 3.4.

I sync using a Netgear MA701 in my zaurus.

The newest version of the Kontact Suite (Kmail, Kaddressbook, Korganizer, etc) has multisync built in. I had it syncing with the Opie-Pim apps under a default 48-16 OZ 3.5.3 a week ago. I will test it out on my Hentges version tonight in case that is broken. I set a static IP on the Z, and in security told it to allow from a specific IP (my desktop). On the desktop I set the second plugin to Opie and off it went.


Qtopia-desktop is not only NOT an option, but it is a waste of some developers time in my opinion.
