OPTIONS

 

pilot-install-netsync options


                        -e--enable
                    

Enable the LanSync operation (Used for performing a "Network" HotSync (synchronize across the Internet for example) instead of "Local" HotSync).


                        -d--disable
                    

Disable the LANSync setting on the Palm


                        -a,
                        --address=address
                    

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.


                        -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
                    

This option is no longer supported in 0.12 - see -a, --address.


                        -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.

Use device file <port> to communicate with the Palm handheld. If this is not specified, pilot-install-netsync will look for the $PILOTPORT environment variable. If neither are found or supplied, pilot-install-netsync will print the usage information.

                        --quiet
                    

Suppress 'Hit HotSync button' message
