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,

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.

Install Intellisync 1.43E on the PC and configure to sync calendar / contacts / todo with Microsoft Outlook

Now create a bat file called zSync.bat containing :

cd "C:\Program Files\Sharp\Intellisync for SL\QtDBTemp"
copy OZ_NetStat.dat NetStat.dat
cd ..

Create a desktop shortcut to the bat file and double click this to perform the sync. When the sync completes then the above complaint "Please change USB address on Zaurus to" will appear. Click OK and ignore.

Zaurus Configuration

Under Settings Tab select "Security"
select the Sync Tab
Set Accept sync from network to:
Select Sync Software to be "Qtopia 1.7"

Sorry if some of the information is a bit sketchy but I haven't touched the intellisync end for some time and can't remember where I got version 1.43E from.


This works pretty darn swanky on my SL-5500/OZ3.5.3 against a Win2k machine, except for 1 thing. Each time I sync, I have to click allow to at least 5 security dialogs on the Z:

an unauthorized system is requesting access to this device.
you chose intellisync so you may I (sic) allow or deny this connection

2 buttons, allow or deny

I have to watch the screen and click allow at least 5 times for it to complete. In the opie security settings, I've tried both and, same problem each time. I know I've seen this problem mentioned on other oesf forums, but the forum search tool seems to always fail if I use more than 2 or 3 search words.

I just want to have it auto authorized for the 1 ip (my win2k desktop) that I normally be synching from.
