Sync works from office, not at home: how to debug? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes

I have been syncing OmniFocus between the desktop version and my iPhone for months now, without any problems. In this whole setup, nothing has been changed since the beginning. The WebDAV share is a password protected HTTP share, hosted at Dreamhost.

Syncing works correctly, both from my Mac and my iPhone, when the devices are connected to the company office network, but since a few days no longer from my home network.

I already called my ISP (Telenet in Belgium) to ask them if anything changed in their setup, e.g. regarding transparant proxy servers, but they state they don't use that, and also that nothing has changed in their setup in the last days.

Can someone suggest methods to debug/detect whether there is an intermediate server/proxy that is the culprit?

Below is an error I took from Console when trying to sync from my home network:

20/09/10 20:49:24	OmniFocus[1842]	sync terminated with error: {

The real hostname has been replaced with "anonimized".

The problem has been rootcaused. My hosting company moved my sites to another machine and updated their DNS appropriately. It seems my router was still caching the old DNS entries. A reboot of my home router resolved it.
