Zaurus USB connection with SUSE 10

I have recently upgraded from SUSE 9.1 to SUSE 10 and the only thing I can't get to work is the connection to my Zaurus using USB-TCP/IP. I had it working before and haven't changed any settings in the Z. I've tried just about every combination of settings that I can think of in SUSE without success.

The device connection shows up in Yast's Hardware information but I haven't a clue how to connect that with an IP address or interface. I have a network up and running under eth0 with router, internet connection, etc. The Z needs to be on a different subnet and both subnets need to be set manually (I think).

I think, from what I've read, that the setup has changed for this version of SUSE but I can't work out what needs to be done.

Any suggestions gratefully received as hair is getting in short supply :-(

Success :-)

For the benfit of anyone else trying to connect a Sharp Zaurus C-860 with Suse 10.0, here is how I got it to work.

In /etc/sysconfig/network I have a file: ifcfg-usb0


and the routes file in the same directory: usb0
default - -

default is the address of my router which is on a different subnet.

I made sure I had the latest updates of Suse and both(!) computers were rebooted.

Now I can exchange files using Samba and can sync my KOrganiser/Pi and KAddressBook/Pi programs that run on both machines.
