Can't get Bonjour sync working Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Prev Previous Post   Next Post Next
I've bought the iPod app and I'm a trial version of OmniFocus for the Mac. My broadband connection for the Mac is marginal and syncing across the Web is not reliable. I want to connect my two devices and sync them directly, the way I could sync a Palm and a desktop many years ago.

If I've understood what's going on, OF wants to use a sync database which is separate from the databases I can see on either machine. I set that up yesterday, and synced the iPod several times, so I thought everything was fine.

This morning the Mac tells me that my existing OF database is offline. I have no idea what that means - it's offline from itself?? - except that it probably explains why the iPod can't connect to it. That would make sense if the Mac couldn't connect to it either, but the Mac also tells me that it synced 10 minutes ago.

I hope someone can help. I've waited years for what I thought I was getting with this setup, and I'll be very disappointed if I can't get it to work.
