Ovi Sync Connection Error


I back up my N97 Mini using iSync to my Mac but I also have a "to server only" backup to Ovi sync. No way would I trust that service to send anything back out to the phone!

But for the last three days, it isn't working - just disconnects and says "Connection Error". I've used the same connections for the last few months without problems.

I've tried checking what the settings are for manually entering them - they are essentially the same as what I have now but with a slightly different server. But neither that server address nor the one I already have work - and I've had the settings resent to me by SMS.

It's not the end of the world and it might persuade me to just ditch Ovi once and for all but it's a useful back up of PIM data. Any one got any ideas?

Hmmm. Fairly unintuitive but I got it work by changing the "Network Connection" from "Default Connection" to "User Defined" and then selecting my operator's mobile internet.

I have no idea what Default Connection is - and why it has worked for the last 8 months or so and then stopped. Now it looks like the Sync application won't use Destinations and therefore won't use my home or work wifi when available in preference.

Oh well, not sure I could care less.
