Yes, it is possible, I use it to hotsync from home to my PC at work by
dialing up our PPP server and going through the LAN (using tcpip) to my
PC. I see no reason (apart from firewalls) why it shouldn't work across
You have to install the "Network HotSync" on your PC. From memory (I'm not
about to remove and reinstall everything), this adds a "Network" item in
the HotSync menu (accessed from the task bar) and also adds a small PRC
into your palm. In the HotSync app on your Palm, in the "Options|Modem
Sync" menu you get to choose between dialing directly to your hotsync PC
or dialling to the Internet. You set up your primary PCs IP name and
address and you're off.
One thing that worries me, though, is security. I believe that anyone who
knows your hotsync name and ID can connect to your PC and make a copy of
everything on your Palm, especially if you are running BackupBuddy.
You can get the "Network HotSync" on
