Working from remote

Postby thedarkmist » Fri Nov 12, 2010 2:21 pm

I'm new to tonido (waiting for my 2 yet ordered plugs) and I'm plaiyng with the desktop version. I installed it on my workstation. Tipically I need to access files from a remote location. But unless i miss something i cannot easily work because i usually need to download an entire folder, work on it, and reupload remotely. But it's not easy.
Using the file browsing it's far from comfortable. in fact I usually use the tonido remote interface to make a copy of the folder i need to work on in my Dropbox folder. Wait for the sync, and then work thanks to dropbox.
Pretty stupid, i think, for a personal cloud software usage.
Any ideas? What I'm missing?
kind Regards.

Each person's requirement is different. If you work on full folders all the time, then WebDAV using BitKinex(Free) or WebDrive (non-Free) connecting to Tonido is the best way to work.

Uh... ehm, well... you're right, but a ubiquitary full access to files (i mean "full access", not "browsing" or "view") IMHO is the minimal requirement for a personal cloud service...

I installed and connected. Am I wrong something or it looks like a FTP kind of job? Isn't possible to mount the remote tonido as a local drive? Something like Hamachi can easily do?
Thanks.

Webdrive does just that.

Mmmmm.... I see...
Maybe you should add some workaround included in the TonidoPlug apps, for the future.
Thanks.
