I'm using Erminig to sync gpe calendar with Google Calendar with great
success. The only time I've had trouble was the other day when Google
had an outage. Generally speaking, if I can access gmail and google
calendar on the Web then I have no trouble with the sync. I think you
either have a connectivity problem (firewall or port setting maybe?)
or a setting is wrong.

I'm still running Chinook on an N800.
