    Is there anyway to sync the Mac OSX keychain between two macs? I don't mean just passwords for web forms, but also passwords for applications, like passwords for cyberduck, adium/skype... or Wi-Fi access point keys...

    Perhaps...

    1. Using chronosync?

    2. How about an application like 1password or lastpass?

    3. What about syncing to a computer running Mac OSX server? I know you can sync contacts and calendars to it, but does it also sync keychains?

    Thanks!

    Ah, I should have mentioned. Since I don't use my current mobileme subscription for email or webspace, I figure paying $100 a year just to sync my keychains and contacts is overkill. I figure I can sync contacts with gmail, but I just need to sync my keychains...

    If you need automated, scheduled backups, go with Chronosync. Or if you don't need constant sync, you could just drag-n-drop the keychain from one Mac to the other.

    Is it ok to sync all the keychains, including the system one?

    Code:
    ~/Library/Keychains/
    /Library/Keychains/
    /Network/Library/Keychains/
    
    I only have one account on each computer and they are the same short name/password...
