Chapter 9. Using iSync with .Mac > Mac-to-Mac Syncing

9.5. Mac-to-Mac Syncing

As you've seen, iSync can be used to shuttle data from your Mac and store it on your iDisk. That makes it really convenient for accessing the information in your Mac's Address Book from anywhere, as well as using it with .Mac's web-based Mail services. But one of the really cool features of syncing with your .Mac account is that you can also sync that information back onto another Mac.

For example, say you have a PowerBook G4 that you tote around for work, and an iMac that you use at home. If both Macs are running Mac OS X, you can use iSync to synchronize data between the two Macs, with your .Mac account acting like a storage facility and iSync acting as a network router in the middle, as shown in Figure 9-21.
