Sync with Bonjour only without firewall!!??
I'm trying to sync my ipod touch 4G with IOS 4.2 via bonjour with my macbook pro with Snow Leopard 10.6.6. After much tries I found your sticky thread about configuring the firewall.
My problem:
The sync only runs when the firewall is out. I added Omnifocus to the allowed apps but when the firewall runs, the sync stops with the "timeout-message".
What's to do ?

Greetings from Germany

Welcome to the forums, Flashracer!

If you try these steps, in the following order, is OmniFocus able to sync? If not, you may want to email our [EMAIL=""]support ninjas[/EMAIL] so we can help.
[LIST=1][*]Quit OmniFocus[*]Ensure that OmniFocus is on the firewall's "Approved" list.[*]Turn the firewall off.[*]Ensure "Web Sharing" is enabled.[*]Turn the Firewall on.[*]Launch OmniFocus on the Mac.[/LIST]

Thank you for answering, but after trying these steps for a dozen times without effort, I changed to the app iprocrastinate which is less expansive and do what it promises. I don't have the time to ask many times for a basic function like syncing.

I'm new to Omni Focus but wanted to set up the sync function right away. I use a Time Capsule from Apple. My iPhone was connecting to a different network than the one serving my MacBook Pro. I switched my iPhone preference and no problems since.
