    Now that I have a nice fast T-Mobile data package for my Treo 270... I am thinking that there should be a way to hotsync via TCP/IP while on the road....

    Has anybody ever tried this?

    As a Mac user, this isn't possible for me. When I was working on a Palm project, I had Visors with 802.11 modules, and the network sync was very cool but very slow. I got a feeling GPRS would be even slower.

    Yes, it is possible. But like chrisfoster said it is slow.

    do a search on these forum for wireless hotsync. you should find the instructions. If you have questions, just reply to the thread(s) you find.

    I found it... and it worked for me... not too bad...

    This was from another thread by Mitchema:

    "To set up your TREO to sync without cables or cradles read below.
    If you have a broadband/always on connection to the internet you will find remote hotsync a life saver. many times i have had to hard reset (press power and click the reset button on back of my treo, upon reboot let go of power, then choose to ERASE ALL MY DATA) just to recover from a phone crippling crash. i regained phone capabilities but lost all software,data, and phone logs. Thanks to Backup Buddy by Blue Nomad ( BACKUP BUDDY ) running on my PC, i logged on to the sprint pcs data network i was able to get all my information back with a network sync.

    *ROUTER OWNERS OR REMOTE SYNCERS USING NAT OR
    FIREWALL:
    - Be sure to configure your firewall to open up TCP ports 14237 and UDP ports 14238. If you cant specify just choose 14237 and 14238.
    - Be sure that all traffic to those ports goes to the ip of the LAN PC that is running HOT SYNC MANAGER.
    - Remember the IP address in step III part E has to be a WAN address not a private or internal LAN IP address, like 192.168.0.99
    - After a successful sync the ip address listed in PRIMARY PC SETUP may be replaced by the one in hotsync manager. meaning if your hotsync manager is on an internal ip like 192.168.0.99 then your TREOs PRIMARY PC IP will be 192.168.0.99 and therefore need to be changed to a WAN address. I believe by making your PRIMARY PC NAME !! this won't happen.

    * OFFICE USERS
    REMEMBER TO CHECK WITH YOUR IT GALS/GUYS and/or SYSTEM ADMINISTRATOR.

    *SECURITY MINDED USERS
    Network Syncing is not the most secure thing in the world. Read Security information on it at bugtraq or your favorite security watering hole.

    HAPPY SYNCING!!!
