I want a direct connection between my iMac and my iPod Touch using DEVONthink Personal and DEVONthink to Go 2. All OS and app software is current. I set the Bonjour options on my iMac. I select both “Enable incoming connections” and “Open databases automatically”. I let the computer choose the port. I enter a password. I click “OK”. The information is saved.
Then I go to my IPod Touch. I edit locations. The IPod finds the iMac. I select the iMac. After I press “Done”, the row showing the iMac location becomes dim. The next time I press the settings button on DT2Go, I see a spinning wheel next to “Edit locations”. The wheel never stops.
I cannot find any way to initiate a sync. I am never asked for the Bonjour password on my iPod.
In most attempts, there is no indication of a sync. Once, the sync indicator spun for a while in the upper left corner of my iPod. I don’t know what was different about that attempt. After it stopped, I could not find any files that had been sync’d.
On my iMac, I cannot find a way to add my database to the list of databases in the Preferences - Sync tab to be sync’d.
I understand that Bonjour options have to be set on only one device. Since the sync is not working when I set Bonjour options on my iMac, I turn them off and try to set them on my iPod instead. But I cannot because all Bonjour options remain dim/disable.
“File” - “Synchronize” is never enabled on my iMac.
What am I missing?
