First of all the default IP address for the Zaurus is 192.168.129.201. Hence, your Desktop device IP address should be set to 192.168.129.1. So if you have both the Zaurus IP set to 192.168.129.201 and the Desktop device IP set to 192.168.129.201 then when you ping 192.168.129.201 it is not actually pinging the Zaurus it is pinging itself. So, please make sure that they follow the standard I posted above so that debugging situations like this are easier.
A long time ago when I was investigating the Qtopia Desktop syncing with Opie PIMs I ran into some posts that claimed problems with certain IPs stating that your Zaurus had to have a specific IP or it wouldn't sync. I am confident that the working IP scheme was the one I discussed above so you may try that. I am looking for as many testers for my project as possible so if you are interested please check it out.
Hi Cyphactor --
"ifconfig usb0" shows that the interface is assigned the 192.168.129.1 address.
And the sl5500 is set to static IP for 192.168.129.201 [subnet mask 255.255.255.0].
When the sl5500 is not in the cradle, or the IP address is changed, it can no longer be pinged.
And pings to both addresses reveal appropriate lag time in the xxx.201 address as compared to
the xxx.1 address, which leads me to believe that the packets are moving down the wire on xxx.201.
When the sl5500 tries to ping the usb0, however, there is no connection.
Thanks for your help so far, Cyphactor. I'll be glad to test your project as soon as I can get the sync working with Qtopia.
Any other ideas on what could be causing this? Anyone?
