Re: [Orgmode] Mobile Org Sharing Questions

On thing that I find could improve, though, is the workflow behind org-mobile pull/push. Having to push from emacs and pull and then having to update from the iPod/iPhone *manually* quickly becomes a hassle, and the result is that I end up not using it as much as I wanted to.

I'm thinking about setting up a cron to run emacs to evaluate '(org-mobile-pull)(org-mobile-push)' every hour so I get "automatic" sync to my iPod. We could also have an option on org-mobile to auto-sync too. Not sure iPhone's OS architecture allows that, though.

Get an account at dreamhost, a domain, and buy SSL from them. I did that and it works great for me (I have setup a subdomain of my main domain to point to a SSL secured IP, which in turn, points to a virtualhost setup on VPS @ dreamhost, this virtualhost has WebDAV enabled and is password-protected, naturally).

If you are using Mac OSX, it's the easiest thing in the world. Just use finder to mount the WebDAV as a partition, and move this drive to the startup items so it gets connected everytime you boot.

With Linux/Ubuntu, it's a little bit more CLI work, but you can get the very same effect (mount the drive, get it mounted automatically at boot-time) -- in both cases, just Google and you'll find plenty of articles.

For Windows, I have no idea. Sorry.

Hi David

Currently you likely use org-mobile-push to put your files on the remote server.  You should be able to use org-mobile-pull for retrieval, is this not the case?

I know it's a bit of an RTFM, but, I'm trying to figure out the best way to keep my org-mode in sync with my iPhone (Using MobileOrg).  And, I'm VERY new to orgmode, and a bit new to emacs.  I can easily do a one way sync (org-mode to somewhere, via html), but I'm looking for a better way (two way sync, like MobileOrg)

I have dropbox, but it's not webdav.
I also have an iDisk, but it's a pain to keep that synched.  I simply don't like the mac synching.
I signed up for the other webdav account, but, I'm not sure if that's the best way to do it.

I can easily use ssh to keep my org files somewhere.  But, that doesn't help the reverse path.
I run my own apache at home, so, I suppose I could install webdav there, but I have concerns about security, having never messed with it.

So, I guess my questions are:

What's the simplest method that's possibly insecure (i.e. some random webdav provider)?
And, what's the simplest method that's secure?

Thanks in advance,
