gpesyncd - synchronisation agent for GPE PIM data
gpesyncd [-r, --remote] [-d, --daemon [PORT]]
gpesyncd synchronises PIM data by transforming vCards, vEvents, vTtodo
and iCals to the appropriate format in the SQLite database of the
respective GPE applications and vice versa.
gpesyncd exports and imports PIM data either to stdout or over TCP/IP.
It can also be used as a command line tool to access all the PIM data.
opensync-plugin-gpe needs gpesyncd to run on the machine where the GPE
application data are stored.
Starts gpesyncd in remote mode, which means that all input must be
entered as <nn>:<data> where <nn> is the length of the data <data>.
Output follows the same convention.
-d, --daemon [PORT]
Starts in TCP/IP mode. Listens on port 6446 unless PORT is
You can run this program in "remote" mode, that means for
everything you want to write to it, you have to prepend the number
of bytes you’re actually writing.
For example, you want to write "help", you type in: "4:help".
Sounds useless, but when using it for syncing from a remote
computer it knows when the input ends and you can even send
newlines. To activate the remote mode, just run it with "gpesyncd
To activate the daemon mode run it with "gpesyncd -D". You can
specify optionally the port by adding a port number after the -D
parameter, e.g. "gpesyncd -D 2442" will listen on port 2442. The
default port is 6446.
Only IPs that are listed in $HOME/.gpe/gpesyncd.allow are allowed
to connect to the gpesyncd. You can add IP addresses while running
the daemon, whenever someone tries to connect to the daemon, it’ll
check all the listed IPs whether they are allowed or not.
No wildcards or something like gpesyncd.deny are implemented!
