Unable to Sync - Error 403 "forbidden"
I'm running the latest sneakypeak version on my Macbook Pro, and I've downloaded the app to my iPhone (original phone upgraded to 2.0). I have a .Mac account (not a .me), and an idisk.

OK, so I was able to sync my data to my iDisk location and send the settings successfully to my iPhone. When I tap the ....., I get the following error message:

Unable to perform WebDAV operation. The server returned an error 403, "forbidden"

I don't understand. I'm trying to use iDisk, not WebDAV. I've reinstalled the application on my iPhone, but it is doing the same thing.

Has anyone experienced this error, and if so, how do I fix it?

We've gotten scattered reports of this problem, but we can't reproduce it yet.

If you are still having this problem, please do the following:

Open (in your Utilities folder).
Paste the following command into the window:

[CODE]defaults write com.omnigroup.OmniFocus XMLFileManagerDebug -bool true[/CODE]
then hit Return.

Next, open (in the same folder) and try a sync.

You should see some debug information start to appear in the console window. Please send it to [EMAIL=""][/EMAIL].

Then paste the command into the Terminal window again, but change "true" to "false" and hit return again.

Just one clarification: syncing with iDisk is done via WebDAV, it's just that in the case of iDisk we already know some of the connection information.
