It's purpose is to import the contacts from Microsoft Outlook in pluto_telecom database.

The location of the installer for this tool is on "Orbiter Win Installers" page, available from login page in Pluto-admin website, something like http://dcerouter/pluto-admin/index.php?section=orbitersWin

After installing the software, run it and in the address text box type the url of the pluto machine: http://[pluto_machine_address]/pluto-admin/outlook_sync/ and hit Update. A security question with a warning will be prompted, that the application try to connect to Outlook and ask permission to do that; please allow it to do so.

 Please be sure the URL is in format specified, including end slashes:
 http://10.0.0.175/pluto-admin/outlook_sync/

Once the sync is completed, all contacts from Outlook who have at least a phone number specified are imported in pluto_telecom database, and also the records from pluto_telecom with at least a phone number are imported in outlook.

The sync keep track of the origin of the record, so if a you change a record in Outlook and run the sync again, it will be updated in database too, but doesn't support "hybrid" records (added in database and changed in Outlook for example).
