Mobile DropCopy over the internet

The 10base-t "blurb" for Mobile DropCopy says: "on your local wireless network and across the world via the internet."

OK, how do I tell Mobile DropCopy to find a destination that's not on the "local network" for either a message or file?

I have no problem setting up the firewall and port remappings on the home end, but haven't seen how to handle the iPhone.

 

Thanks,

it won't automatically find other destinations on the greater internet – you'll have to add them as manual destinations.  Find the target machine's IP number to add it.  DropCopy saves this destination and it will be available for future use.  You can also delete manual destinations by swiping the row and choosing 'delete'

OK, a year later I've upgraded to the 4s, and now don't see how I successfully added the destinations on the phone a year ago! All I see is "Choose a destination", and the destinations on my local LAN, nowhere to add them for when I'm out in the world away from home…

 

Thanks!

there should also be an option labeled: "Enter a custom destination"

you might need to scroll the list up to see this option?

Nope, can't see it anywhere. I don't see it on the screen, and scrolling as far down as I can doesn't show it.

I don't know whether I lost the destinations when I upgraded to iOS5 or when I restored to a new 4s several days later, but my saved destinations disappeared and I can't replace them.

Thanks

We don't have a 4s yet to test but perhaps you could download the free lite version and just see if that option appears? if not then there is something particular about the 4s firmware that we need to work around.

OK… solved the problem, after looking at the light version.

Apparently the File send and the Msg send have different GUIs…

The File send has a sort of msgbox that appears with a custom destination entry.

The Msg send has an awkward (sorry…) scrolling box that shows the destinations, but has no custom entry… However if I add a custom entry in the File send box, it sticks, and is available in the Msg entry box…

Hope this helps…

thanks for pointing out this discrepancy. We'll change this in the next release.

And now another year and a half later…

Trying to add custom destinations again, GUI problems mentioned above still exist… Send message still has no way to enter custom destinations, while sending a file does.

Also, if I try to enter several destinations it will hold them within the session, but then only save one if I close the program, delete it from the recently used list at the bottom of the home screen, and re-enter the program.

ok – the GUI issue must have slipped through the cracks, but the second element is definitely a bug, and we'll escalate this appropriately.

I'll keep the forum posted…
