Palm's Mac support sucks

[ #9394 ]

A couple of weeks ago I ordered a Xircom SpringPort Wireless Ethernet module. I was not sure the price was right because it was so low, so I thought it might not show up.

When I got back from my trip yesterday it was waiting for me. I needed to charge it for two hours before I used it so I went to bed while I left it in my HandSpring cradle.

Today I tried to use it. Oops! I use a Mac---no network HotSync for me. The Apple iSync stuff apparently is just a front end for the HotSync Manager. The HTML browser that comes with it requires a proxy server that I have to sign up to use---no thanks. I need to find some network tools for this thing. Maybe I could reverse engineer the network HotSync functionality so I can support it on the Mac.

So, when is Perl going to be on the Palm OS?

  • I just had to put a comment here.

    I haven't had much time to play with my Springport yet on my Visor Pro. I haven't really explored the network hotsync. I have got it to work on a wide open network and a vpn'd network.

    I definitely need to start looking at wifi apps for the palm now.
  • I don't understand the problem; iSync/HotSync works great for me. Maybe it is a Handspring/Visor problem?
