    What does your CT Permit say?
    I've been playing with a friend's iBook networked to his eMac (main machine) from one room to another using a 50' cable run.

    I have proven the ability to use iSync to upload/download the eMac's iCal calendar to the iBook using .Mac, and visa versa. This is tedious and time consuming.

    Question:
    How can I get the eMac's calander on the iBook, in real time, using the network connection between the two machines?

    Thank you.

    I'm not familiar with those specific applications but this is how most sharing is done:

    1. Have a *shared* directory on one machine.
    2. Store the actual calendar data file in that shared directory.
    3. Change the preferences on both machines to look in that shared directory for the calendars data file.
