No solution so far, but great insight into synching pda's.

Thanks to all the managers who have replied so far. You have nearly all
suggested excellent synch utilities for Solaris. Unfortunately, I have
obviously not been to clear with my question as you have all assumed I want
to sync with CDE applications, which is not the case.
My worksations are running metaframe client to an NT metaframe server, so
the unix users can still run windows apps, but not require a PC to do so. On
a windows metaframe client, there is the option to issue "net use Com4:
\\Client\Com1, to enable com port re-direction. I suppose this is what I am

Thanks again.
