install-netsync - reads or sets the Network Preferences information on
a Palm Device.
install-netsync [-p <port>] [-e] [-n <hostname>] [-i <ip>] [-m <netmask>]
install-netsync allows the user to read or change the Network
Preferences stored on the Palm.
- -p, --port <port>
Use device file <port> to communicate with the Palm handheld.
If this is not specified, will look for the $PILOTPORT environment
variable. If both are not found or supplied, install-expenses will
fall back to /dev/pilot.
- -h, --help
Display the help synopsis for install-netsync.
- -v, --version
Display version of install-netsync.
- -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.
The program will connect to a target Palm handheld, and read and
display or set the Network Preferences information specified or display the
Network Preferences stored on the Palm device.
