Does that mean I can already set a larger timeout for my nokia e51?
Say... 2 hours?
Not in the normal SyncEvolution, because it didn't use the feature that
But in the meantime I have implemented the necessary changes
(thread-safety, config option) in SyncEvolution, so when compiling from
source it is possible. Hmm, I thought I had sent you an email about
that, but I can't find it.
If you want a tar ball, try this:
It should use the feature by default. The full documentation is this:
On a client, the latest commonly supported SyncML version
is used when contacting a server. One of '1.0/1.1/1.2' can
be used to pick a specific version explicitly.
On a server, this option controls what kind of Server Alerted
Notification is sent to the client to start a synchronization.
By default, first the format from 1.2 is tried, then in case
of failure, the older one from 1.1. 1.2/1.1 can be set
explicitly, which disables the automatism.
Instead or in adddition to the version, several keywords can
be set in this property (separated by spaces or commas):
- NOCTCAP - avoid sending CtCap meta information
- NORESTART - disable the sync mode extension that SyncEvolution
client and server use to negotiate whether both sides support
running multiple sync iterations in the same session
- REQUESTMAXTIME=<time> - override the rate at which the
SyncML server sends preliminary replies while preparing
local storages in the background. This helps to avoid timeouts
in the SyncML client. Depends on multithreading.
This SyncEvolution binary is thread-safe and thus this feature
is enabled by default for HTTP servers, with a delay of 2 minutes
between messages. Other servers (Bluetooth, local sync) should not
need preliminary replies and the feature is disabled, although
it can be enabled by setting the time explicitly.
<time> can be specified like other durations in the config,
for example as REQUESTMAXTIME=2m.
Setting these flags should only be necessary as workaround for
