Has anyone had any luck using pilot-link to sync JPilot to a Palm
device via the USB? I'm trying to sync my Handspring Visor and it just
doesn't seem to be noticing it. I have the following in my
device "Handspring Visor"
attach "chmod 0666 /dev/ugen*"
as per the code that was in there for the coldsync. When I press the
sync button on the cradle, these devices show up:
crw-rw-rw- 1 root operator 0, 181 Oct 17 13:45 /dev/ugen0
crw-rw-rw- 1 root operator 0, 182 Oct 17 13:45 /dev/ugen0.1
crw-rw-rw- 1 root operator 0, 183 Oct 17 13:45 /dev/ugen0.2
And the following shows up in my dmesg:
ugen0: Handspring Inc Handspring Visor, rev 1.00/1.00, addr 5
ugen0: at uhub6 port 4 (addr 5) disconnected
All threads purged from ugen0.2
All threads purged from ugen0.1
All threads purged from ugen0
But the pilot-link command fails immediately:
$ pilot-xfer -p /dev/ugen0 -l
Unable to bind to port: /dev/ugen0
Please use --help for more information
Any ideas? I've googled all over the place, but I only see similiar
questions. And the FreeBSD.README on the pilot-link web site seems to
be misleading at best.
I've had success syncing my Palm OS based phone (SPH-i500 FWIW) to my
laptop using jpilot with a USB connection.
Glad to hear someone has had success. What FreeBSD are you using? I'm
using 6.1 (via PC-BSD 1.2).
Do you have permissions to access /dev/ugen0?

But only because I added the 'attach chmod' command to usbd.conf:
>> attach "chmod 0666 /dev/ugen*"
Before, it was read-only.
