Hi, my best *guess* (so please don't count on it) is that you will need to
use GPRS, Bluetooth or other wireless methodologies to synchronise. I do not
believe that Ethernet can have packets channelled in this way and ultimately
be routed to HotSync Manager. I can envision how this can be achieved in
Linux, but it would not be simple. You could pipe the input from a
particular port number on eth0 to a device that corresponds to your cradle.
Sounds like a nightmare to set up.
