Hello, I think USB/TCP bridge is a quite interesting program. I wish it could be possible to communicate with my CLIE through this bridge. I hear linux can do it by pppd and /dev/ttyUSB.
It is written that pilot-link can hotsync with Palm device using this bridge. Is there any way for the normal PalmDesktop program for Mac OS X to do so?
I think there is no reason why you could'nt connect to a CLIE using the bridge. Which model to you have? A simple test can show whether it will work or not: start the Bridge on your Mac, place your Cli un the cradle and press the HotSync button. If the bridge says "Connected", then it supports your Clie. Otherwise I'd be interested to know which model of Cli you have to add support for it.
I have NX70V and "Connected" is displayed when I press hotsync button or use NetFront web browser in my CLIE. My question is whether it is possible or not to connect between CLIE and network interface of Mac OS X or to hotsync with PalmDesktop software through this bridge.
I telnet'ed to localhost port 2000 and used NetFront to access local (in Mac OS X) web page, but no data which would be sent from CLIE was displayed in the telnet window.
Ah I understand what you want to do. Basically, you'd need to have a pppd daemon running on Mac OS X that listens to incoming connections from the Cli. Right now, this is not supported by the bridge (merely because pppd requires a /dev device and USB-TCP Bridge doesn't provide one). Also, the bridge actually uses Palm Desktop's USB driver to establish the connection. I don't know why your Palm Desktop doesn't work with the Cli or whether it's supposed to work, but there is nothing the bridge can do about that.
