    How did you do it?

    I use hotsync ota regularly on my sprint 650. Here is an old thread that still works http://discussion.treocentral.com/s...net+hotsync+udp. I copied these steps from another post and saved them as a outlook note file for future reference. I take no credit someone did a nice job of describing the setup but I can't find the post now. So be sure to set the hotsync manager on your desktop to do nothing for backup and make sure to set that as the default or it will backup anyways. That takes a very long time. I went to Options in the Treo's hotsync program and set the conduits to sync only calendar, contacts, memo's, and tasks. Makes the hotsync much quicker and this is the only data I need updated throughout the day.

    OTA Hotsync

    Setup Phone
    Click on the HotSync icon
    Go to Options -> Modem Sync Preferences and choose Network
    Go to Options -> LanSync Preferences and choose Local HotSync
    Go to Options -> Primary PC Address.
    Set Primary PC Name to !!
    Set Primary PC Address to your WAN IP address
    Leave Subnet Mask blank
    Go to Options -> Connection Setup, highlight Direct Serial and tap Done

    Setup Computer
    Right-click the HotSync icon in the system tray and choose Setup
    Click the Network tab
    Make sure the profile you want to sync is checked
    Click the TCP/IP Settings and make sure that your correct IP address is chosen. If you only have one network adapter (in most cases) this option will be grayed out.
    Leave Subnet Mask blank and click OK
    Click OK again to close the Setup dialog window
    Right-click the HotSync icon in the system tray and make sure Network has a checkmark next to it

    Setup Router/Firewall
    Forward TCP port 14237 to your LAN IP address
    Forward UDP port 14238 to your LAN IP address
    Forward TCP port 14238 to your LAN IP address

    You can also do it even if your desktop PC is behind a VPN firewall. I use Mergic VPN, and they've got good instructions on how to do it at http://www.mergic.com/vpnHotSync.php
