I am currently on holiday and have my laptop and iPhone with me. My last sync was done on my "home" network.

If both my laptop and phone are on the same "guest" network should I not be able to sync?

    In theory yes they should be able to sync, however it is dependent on the set up of the wireless router you are connecting to. Many wireless routers can be set up to block certain types of traffic between devices on the wireless network. It is not uncommon on public wifi networks for the router to be blocking bonjour packets. If you are not able to sync on this network you may need to speak with the network administrator to make sure that the ports the bonjour protocol uses are open.
