    My 700p arrives tomorrow, and I'm trying to figure out if I'll be able to hotsync over the internet. I've been doing this with my current Palm TX and it is SO FAST, it's great. Do people do this with their Treo? I know I would need to do port forwarding with my router at home, but if the ports used are known (and I'm sure they are), this shouldn't be hard. Anyone do this?

    I know it's possible because I had my Treo 300 set up to do this years ago. Unfortunately,it was RIDICULOUSLY slow. It would take 5-10 minutes to sync completely. I never tried it with my 600 or 650. I'd be interested to hear if people are doing it as well, and if so, is it as fast as danspalmone's experience?

    Dan... did you do a search for "wireless hotsync"? That's how I got the configuration information to do it the first time.

    I found this post on a forum on how o set this up. It is slow as all H@|| over 1xRT with verizon but if you were out of the office and out of town and had a complete train wreck you could at least get up and running again. Here is the instructions posted at the bottom is the original link to the post. I have done it three times and it has worked flawlessly. Check it out.

    It is completely possible to HotSync your i330 over the internet by following the following steps. I’ll be the first to admit that you have to jump through some hoops to get it working (and remembering all the settings you need), but once you do it a couple times, it’s a snap. :-)

    The instructions are broken down so that you make changes to the phone, the HotSync Computer, and then finally doing your first Sync. Don’t skip any steps.

    **** Setup on your i330 Phone ****
    1. Click on the HotSync icon
    2. Go to Options --> Modem Sync Preferences. Choose “Network”
    3. Go to Options --> LanSync Preferences. Choose “Local HotSync”
    4. Go to Options --> Primary PC Address.
    ** a. Set “Primary PC Name” to "!!" (2 exclamation points with no quotes).
    ** b. Set “Primary PC Address” to the IP address of the computer(or router) that is attached to the internet.
    ** c. Leave “Subnet Mask” blank
    5. Go to Options --> Connection Setup. Make sure “Direct Serial” is highlighted. Click “Done”.

    **** Setup on your Computer ****
    1. Right-click the HotSync icon in the System tray and choose Setup.
    2. Click the Network tab
    3. Make sure the Profile you want to sync has a checkmark in the checkbox
    4. 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 will be grayed-out.
    5. Leave Subnet Mask blank and click OK.
    6. Click OK again to close the Setup window.
    7. Right-click the HotSync icon in the System tray and make sure “Network” has a checkmark next to it.

    **** Firewalls & Routers ****
    If your computer is behind a firewall or it has a router between it and the internet, you will have to do the following.

    1. Make sure you have the following ports open: TCP:14237 & TCP:14238. This is how HotSync (on your phone) communicates with HotSync on your computer. So if you use a software firewall, you will have to allow HotSync to communicate with the internet over these ports. The Palm website indicates that port 14238 is for UDP, but my tests indicate that communication is happening over TCP.
    2. If you use a router, you will have to have all requests on those ports forward to the internal computer with HotSync

    **** Doing your first HotSync over the Internet ****
    1. Click on HotSync and on the main screen, change from “Local” to “Modem”
    2. When you change to Modem, it should show you “Sprint” as who it will dial.
    3. Press the HotSync icon on this screen. HotSync will dial out to Sprint and initiate the synchronizing. You will see the HotSync notification box popup on the HotSync computer as the process happens (just as it would if it was a local HotSync.)

    **** Notes ***
    Thanks to member "Get Wright" for this one!
    By setting the "Primary PC Name" to "!!" this will prevent the HotSync settings in the i330 from getting set to their internal (Private LAN) settings.

    Must use actual IP Address
    Apparently DNS doesn’t work, because when I try to use my DNS name, which will forward to my Dynamic IP Address, it doesn’t work. If anyone knows how to get this to work, please let me know. :-)

    There is also a similar post in the Hotsync Forum called "Remote Syncing?"

    I did a search and decided to post the answer I found on this original post. But I did find many posts regarding this issue. Hope this info helps someone out there.

    Does anyone know what the security of a hotsync is? I'm guessing that it's totally unencripted & all someone would need is a packet sniffer?

    I would bet that you are correct. I doubt it is encrypted much if any. Good point.

    all i want to say is WOW another way to fall in love with treo. Worked like a charm. You guys should have seen how much it took me to do something similar with PPC6700. Shame to microsoft...

    PS my sync cable is going back to the box.
