Moving account from one machine to another

Postby palanmcmahon » Thu Mar 08, 2012 11:52 am

I have a tonido account registered to one machine in one location, but I intend to replace that machine by a Tonidoplug located under another IP address. How do I go about transferring my Tonido account to the Tonidoplug such that the access address http://myname.tonidoid.com associates with the Tonidoplug rather than the present machine?

When you setup the plug: use account recovery. Before you do this make sure you have a valid email address associated with your account on your computer.

See
http://www.tonido.com/support/display/d ... count+name

After account recovery completes, your account on your machine will no longer work. You need to create a new account on that machine to use it.

I'm moving my Tonidoplug to another location, another IP address. How do I go about recovering my account at the new location?

You don't need to do anything when you move the plug to a new location.

So how does the URL myname.tonidoid.com become associated with the new IP address?

It is all done automatically when you move it by the Tonido software.

I use TonidoPro. Is there anything additional I need to do to move the installation to a new machine?

Thanks!

After moving profile, go to the App Store tab and enter your Tonido store credentials and then activate Tonido Pro. It should work.
