I've been trying to get a recent bookmarksync client working with my
own (minimal-php version) bookmarksync server, and can't seem to find
a recent version of the client that handles FireFox and which will
work for me.
So far I've tried many different combinations of client and server
- server-php-minimal (release version 0.2.2 and 0.2.0)
- server-php-minimal (cvs head)
- client 1.4
- client 1.6
- Latest (and prior) sync2it 1.7 clients
- 1.6.x Clients from 2go.com
- 1.6.x Clients from other bookmarksync-using sites.
- Patched clients from http://www.mctubster.com/syncit
The only success that I've had so far is with the latest stable
php-minimal server version, and the 1.4 version of the client. This
happily syncs to and from Internet Explorer for me and so the
server appears to be working ok.
The latest sync2it.com client doesn't seem to be accessing my server
even though I have a root value defined in the registry it tries to
HTTP POST to sync2it.com, and the other recent client versions seem
to crash with an RtlMagicDivide error before even trying to connect
to my bookmarksync server. I've cleared out all of the bookmarks on
one machine just in case there was a specific bookmark that the
client didn't like, but that makes no difference.
I'm not sure if this is due to; my windows boxes' configuration, a
mismatch between my client and server version, or just a client bug.
Is anyone syncing Firefox and IE browser bookmarks onto their own
server ? If so could they point me towards the client/server version
that they are using. I'll then try that and if I see the same still
then I can start digging through the client source code.
