SL5500, V3.1, Intellisync, TCP/IP, USB problems
« on: October 22, 2004, 04:39:03 pm »
Hello, everyone!
       I'm having problems syncing my SL5500 with Intellisync via TCP/IP.  This used to work fine with ROM 2.38, but ever since I upgraded to V3.1 (It's been a while) I can't sync via TCP/IP.  If I switch to USB/IO, then things are fine, but then I lose all of my network connectivity to my zaurus.
       When I switch to TCP/IP, I can ping, telnet, and FTP to my zaurus with no problems, so I know basic networking is functioning.  When I press the SYNC button on the cradle, nothing happens on my PC.  If I run the Synchronize application on my PC, my Zaurus goes in and out of Sync mode and then the sync finally fails.
       Again, if I switch to USB/IO synchronization works just fine.

       Any ideas?  Thanks!

Did you update the latest Sharp version of IntelliSync. The Zaurus SL-5500 v3.10 rom and up now use DaTaManager (DTM) to store their PIM data. Because of this sharp also altered the Sync protocol over TCP/IP (also TCP/IP over USB). Hence, if you switched to the 3.10 ROM and have not upgraded your desktop IntelliSync to the latest version released by Sharp for the 3.10 ROM it probably wont work.

I sure did.  I read the pgrade instructions carefully and folloed them as closely as possible (I remember them not being very exact).

At any rate, I don't believe this to be the poblem.
