Sorry, if this is the wrong forum to post this to - I'm still a bit of a newbie here...
I'm having all sorts of problems trying to get my SL-5500 to sync with Outlook 2000 on my XP machine (sad I know, but for the moment I need Outlook compatibility).
I've tried various combinations of OpenZaurus/Opie and Sharp's v3.1.3 ROM on the Z with Intellisync (an earlier version and 1.4E) and even Qtopia Desktop on the PC side.
Generally, I can get a TCP/IP connection set-up, such that I can ping the Z from the PC and vice versa without any apparent problems but when it comes to getting the PIMs to sync I generally get errors indicating that the connection isn't working. The nearest I've got so far, is to use OpenZaurus 3.5.1 and Opie 1.1.6 (IIRC) with Qtopia Desktop on the PC (which curiously acts as a conduit for Outlook - not quite what I expected) - that partially synced (Categories & ToDo list seems to be downloaded okay, Calendar/Appointments partially synced (apparently only some repeating appointments but no single events got downloaded to the Z), Contacts were never successfully downloaded at all (perhaps because there are a lot of records (1000+)).
I really need to sit down and work-out which versions I've tried with what and what the problems were in each case, but before I spend the next week trying to
try every conceivable variation. Has anyone got any suggestions for combinations that work/don't work?
Any help would be much appreciated!!!
