I've got a sync problem with the following configuration:

1) A Zaurus SL5500 with SharpROM 3.13 + Cacko Kernel Patch

connected via USB-Cradle to

2) Apple PowerBook G4, MacOS 10.3.9
sharing of the LAN-connection with the USB/TCP-IP connection enabled

connected via WLAN to
3) DSL/WLAN-router T-Sinus 154 DSL

connected via Ethernet cable to
4) PC with Windows XP
Intellisync installed

I was able to sync the PIM-data on Z and PC, if I connect the Zaurus-USB-cradle directly to the PC.
Normally, however, the Z shall be connected to my Apple PowerBook and not to the PC,
so the question is if I can do an IntelliSync via the network.

What I had to do:
on Z: route add default gw
on PC: route add mask metric 1 (is 1 correct??)

What I am able to do right now:
from the Z:
ping the PowerBook, the Router and the PC

from the PC:
ping the PowerBook, the router and the Z
establish a smb-connection to the Z ( and access Internal storage, CF- and SD-card on the Z

What I'm not able to do yet:
Run Intellisync from the PC to sync Outlook XP with the PIM-apps on the Z

can anyone tell me how to configure that?

Thanks in advance
best regards

When you initialise a sync with the zaurus it will respond to the request but will only talk to x.x.x.1 IP where x.x.x is the first 3 octets of its address. So in order to sync via WiFi or LAN I had t set my PC to x.x.x.1 and my Z to x.x.x.2 and everything worked great afterward. I can even use the backup utility over WiFi.
