Codebook Mac Wifi Sync issue


#1

Hi - I wanted to try the Wifi sync, but when I switch from Google Drive to it, in Preferences, I get this error:

The operation could not be completed. (SyncServerErrorDomain error 1.). Unable to start sync listener on port 57419, check to make sure another service is not already running. 

Then at Terminal I run:

sudo lsof -i :57419

… and see that apsd is using that port. This is apparently Apple’s APSD (Apple Push Notification Service Daemon), and it appears it’s used for facetime, which I use.

Any idea what I can do about this?

Hi @rickcogley, that’s odd, what version of OS X are you using? Does quitting FaceTime or rebooting your Mac change the behavior when you enable WiFi sync?


#3

On my Mac it looks like apsd starts up with ports close to ours, I’m seeing values like 58493 and 58519 when I restart FaceTime. Hopefully restarting the app will set it on a different port than Codebook’s 57419.

Hi @wgray, thanks. I’m using OS X 10.11.3. I’m running cocktail and upgrades this am. Will see what happens after a reboot.

Works after a reboot. Go figure.
