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.
OK, this is how I do it to my windowsXP laptop via an ad-hoc wireless connection.
Haven't used the cradle for some time but this works under OZ3.5.1, OZ3.5.2, and OZ3.5.3PC Info
CPU:Intel Pentium M 1.4GHz
Wireless:Intel PRO/Wireless LAN 2100
OS: WindowsXP SP2
Wireless:Senao/Origo 80211b WLAN Card

In "Wireless Network Connection Properties"
Select Wireless Networks
- Add a new connection
- Set SSID = zaurus
- Check box titled "Data Encryption (WEP enabled) and enter a key
- Check box titled "This is a computer-to0computer (ad hoc) network..."
Click OK to Apply
Highlight Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
and click Properties
In the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties
- Select Obtain an IP address automatically
- Select Obtain DNS server address automatically(This is for my normal WLAN config when at home with the notebook PC)Alternate Configuration Tab
- Select User configured

ping and ssh connection is now possible to zaurus from PC using suitable software such as PuTTY(Note: may need to restart network interfaces on the Z)SyncPC Configuration
Intending to sync with Microsoft Outlook 2002 SP2
Install Intellisync 1.43E on the PC and configure to sync calendar / contacts / todo with Microsoft OutlookNote: For Mail sync you would need to use QtMail from the Sharp ROM but this does work if installed.
Now, if you try to Sync using the supplied programs then IntelliSync will complain with the following:"Please change USB address on Zaurus to 192.168.130.201"
and will modify it's config accordingly
This is because the wireless LAN connection is using 192.168.129.201 so to get around this copy a file in the directory "C:\Program Files\Sharp\Intellisync for SL\QtDBTemp"
" to "OZ_NetStat.dat
" and modify the line containing TermIP to read "TermIP :192.168.129.201
Now create a bat file called zSync.bat containing :C:
cd "C:\Program Files\Sharp\Intellisync for SL\QtDBTemp"
copy OZ_NetStat.dat NetStat.dat
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 192.168.130.201" will appear. Click OK and ignore.Zaurus Configuration
Under Settings Tab select "Security"
select the Sync Tab
Set Accept sync from network to: 192.168.129.0/24
Select Sync Software to be "Qtopia 1.7"
Calendar Syncs with Outlook reliably
ToDo Syncs with Outlook reliably
Contacts Syncs with Outlook reliably
Mail was capable of syncing last time I tried with QtMail
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.
