Good way to sync OO between iPad and Mac Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
What benefit does Omni get from you using their free-to-you-not-free-to-them solution? They provide it as a convenience to those who don't have an alternative.
 
Hi

I read this post on using the Omni sync server with interest but I'm not sure how I can use this in off-line mode. I am assuming that I need to be connected to see my "sync" files. This is not a good solution as I will then have to manually copy my files to use off-line.

Do you have any advice on this?

Also, I would be happy to just use iTunes sync but it doesn't seem to work for bi-directional sync. Changes I make on the iPad version of OO are not reflected back on the Mac side.
 
I've been trying to sync OmniOutliner documents following Myrrh's instructions but I am unable to connect to the OmniServer from my Mac.

I "Connect to Server" using the "Go" menu on my Mac and then am asked for a Name and Password and I enter my OmniServer information and I get a dialog that says that I am unable to connect to server.

I'm not sure what I am doing wrong but I have been able to establish a connection using OmniOutliner on my iPad. I have been using OmniServer for my OmniFocus information. Any ideas?

TIA
 
What's the exact server address you're entering? It should be https://sync.omnigroup.com/username

Yes, that's the address I'm using. After trying to Connect, I get a standard "Enter your name and password to connect to "sync.omnigroup.com" dialog, asking me if I want to connect as a "Guest" or "Registered User" with Name: and Password: fields to fill in.

I tried entering my OmniServer User Name and Password into the dialog above and I still cannot Login.

Any help please!

Try putting a trailing '/' on the URL.

That almost does it. My Mac tries to connect but is unable to... just sits there spinning with a "Connecting..." message. That's further than I've gotten before.

:confused:
 
Now try changing "sync" to "sync1" or "sync2" or "sync3". Apparently there's a bug in the Finder that doesn't handle some of the magic done behind the curtain to split the load over a handful of servers.
 
That did it! Thanks very much. Using OmniServer (WebDAV) is not a very elegant solution but it will do for now. iCloud, DropBox or both anyone?!?
