I assume you mean from the cradle. Obviously, you can use HTTP or FTP or any other communication mode in general wireless usage mode, given the appropriate device support.
As for cradle syncing, that is device specific, so check with the particular vendor's documentation for information on it.

Well, cradle to PC connection does not have to be device specific. You can setup a TCP network on top serial lines and transfer data through normal HTTP. Have a look at this article:

I do not know how to do it with windows though. But who needs windows ...

hey, ive just completed a project involving a stock control app. synchronisation via conduits seemed to be a difficult area, so i went for using an http connection to communicate with a web server. then i used servlets to process the requests. its more complicated than synchronisation, but the system works fine. i can transfer data back and forth without having to synchronise all the time. if you need more info just let me know.

Well, I was assuming he wanted to do it through Java. Whether there is support in Java for such a connection depends on whether or not the vendor supplied it.
