    If you wanted to sync your iOS device over the Internet, would it work to 1) jailbreak it and trick the device into thinking it is always on Wi-fi, 2) set up VPN, then 3) sync it? Has anyone else tried something different?

    I think my real question is how wi-fi sync works. If you set up VPN, then a local hostname should work when accessed by Wi-fi sync. Right?

    I believe the wifi sync will only for for a LOCAL wireless network.

    I assume it uses Bonjour, not sure how that would work over VPN.
