-p, --port <port>

-v, --version

-e, --enable
Enable the LanSync operation (Used for performing a "Network" HotSync (synronize across the Internet for example) instead of "Local" HotSync).

-n, --name <hostname>
Sets the hostname of the remote machine you wish to connect to via "Network" HotSync. This is not the hostname of the Palm device itself.

-i, --ip <ip>
Set the IP address of the remote machine you wish to connect to via "Network" HotSync. This is not the IP address of the Palm device itself. In most cases the Palm will be assigned an IP address automatically by your desktop or server-side configuration.

-m, --mask <netmask>
Set the netmask of the remote machine you wish to connect to via "Network" HotSync. This is not the netmask address of the Palm device itself, it should be assigned a netmask value at connection time, based on your desktop or server-side configuration.
