Network sync Hi Forgive me if this appears to be a dumb question, but the PalmOS is still fairly new for me. I am using a Samsung SPH-i500 smart phone and am currently syncing to Windows XP. I would rather, however, sync to my MacOS (OSX) since I do most of my scheduling there. Unfortunately, Samsung does not provide Mac drivers for the i500 and, according to their tech support, does not plan to do so. I think, however, that I might be able to set up network syncing through my Windows PC, but I'm not sure. Does anyone have experience doing a LAN sync through a Windows machine to a Mac, and if so, what software do you use? I was going to download Palm's Mac software, but I'm asked to specify which model Palm I'm using, and of course, the i500 is not listed. If anyone has any experience they'd be willing to share, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks. Matthew

Need a faster answer?
Not being familiar with (or a fan of) Mac, I did a little research and came up with this: Access a Shared Folder from Mac OS X. Open the Finder, click Go on the menu at the top of the screen, and select Connect to Server. Enter the following address, replacing COMPUTERNAME with the Windows computer's name: smb://COMPUTERNAME. You can also enter the other computer's local IP address instead of its name.

Not sure if it helps at all but there you have it.
