Right, the tablet would need to touch base with DropBox to know it should sync, then it will sync locally as per the page I linked/quoted above.


So in summary, so long as it can check home base, DropBox will sync, and keep files in sync via the local network on all OSs. The only weakness (and I agree on this hiccup, but accept it as price of entry) is the need to check home for directions on what to do.

I use it, and it works great for me. When I am at home my tablet (which is wifi only) syncs up everything and when I arrive where I am speaking my tablet has what i need on it, regardless of internet connection.

Mobilenoter reads native .one files, so mobilenoter + onenote could be a solution for you.

I've tried doing manual synching over FTP, and found it a bit of a headache- and FTP is supposedly pretty insecure.

There's also the issue of NAT translation if you're trying to dial up from somewhere off your LAN. I ran into it with AT&T because the gateway uses one set of IP ranges for internal addressing, but a different one for connected computers.

I'm not sure if the preference not to use the cloud is because you've got intermittent internet access (in which case this is on topic) or fully related to security concerns (in which case this is off topic).

Graham
Not too far off-topic, so thanks for the little discussion/testing you've done.

As to the cloud - it's something I would like to avoid largely because I don't trust it!!! There are too many stories of hacks breaking through firewalls that don't offer a great deal of confidence. I, like others, have objected to Norton with their 'cloud' storage of passwords.

Nothing is secure to determined hackers, as many governments can testify to. Evernote was recently targeted successfully.

I accept secured wifi is less secure than cloud, but I live far enough away from our nearest neighbour (& public road) that I doubt my signal strength can reach them - theirs don't reach me very often.

Do any of the wifi-enabled memory cards (eg. Eye-fi) have an auto-sync option for a local network folder? I haven't played with any of these wifi memory cards but it sounds like a possibility.

I would absolutely NOT use eye-fi. I've heard too many complaints about security and files going to the right place.
