I have noticed that my Sporty will not engage the transfer case unless I shift into 4wd with the transmission in neutral (mine is an automatic). The "shift on the fly" doesn't work, perhaps because the vacuum system that engages the automatic hubs is disabled. But shifting from neutral does the job, on my rig, at least...
