You could also try accessing the webconsole and see if the connection engines are actually running.

Easy way to test, is to go to the server console on the SLES11 box you have running the datasync stuff and execute the following when logged in as root: 'rcSuSEfirewall2 stop'.  Then see if you can connect, if so it's the firewall that needs to configured to allow traffic on 80/443.

Thought there might be one but I'm not hep on Linux.  Fortunately I have a workmate and a roommate who are both Linux folks.

What about the SuSE firewall on the SLES box itself?

Exactly what I did and still nothing.  Then I telnetted to both 80 and 443 on the box and I couldn't open a connection.  There should be no firewall issue since the and I are inside it.

Lil, it doesn't use the IMAP port set.  Setup instructions can be found here: http://wiki.novell.com/index.php/Data_Synchronizer_Mobility_Connector_Devices or more specifically for the iPod/iPhone here: http://wiki.novell.com/index.php/Data_Synchronizer_Mobility_Setup_iPhone3G
I have both a Droid and an iPod touch syncing to my GroupWise account, and it works great.

Has any got any tips on configuring the iPhone for using the data syncer?  Nothing I do works.  I assume that it uses a default IMAP port set.  I get a failure during setup.  
On top of that, though the account has been saved when I enter Mail it acts as if the account doesn't exist but when I try to set up a new one from the Mail screen it tells me I'm only allowed one Exchange account.  And to make matters worse, my iTunes program insists that the short cut is only valid for already installed products.
