General/Typical setup for goldsync with remotes ... attachments and linked documents.. thanks in advance
Posted on 2006-10-25
SORRY about the length people. PLEASE READ... I've tried to be as informative as possible.
I'm giving maximum points for this.. BC i need it tomorrow :) and theres so much out there.... we need a GOOD ANSWER....
I have conflicting info from everywhere about this. It seems to be a bit of a topic that can get confused.
I have a current issue but to make things easier:
I want to have a remote user synchronise emails and docs they create on the remote laptop (sync) and have these appear on the server.
so local files are c:\apps\goldmine\* and network for other users is g:\apps\goldmine\*
I would like g:\mailbox\attach and f:\* linked documents (has to be this as most clients have a directory structure in place already somewhere else) to sync to the laptop and therefore c:\apps\goldmine\tmplinks and c:\apps\goldmine\mailbox\attach.
likewise, to go the other way and turn the above back into their network location.
What are the remote and server settings.
All sync settings switched on at remote and server (VERY fine with that :) )
file|configure|synchorisation settings|linked documents
what are the settings for exactly what i am asking for. BTW - the remote user does have the network drive mapped on the laptop i.e. g: I have seen some stuff say this is NOT good. likewise with network drive F:\ because there are OTHER documents there that are not linked in GM purposely. Completely unrelated.
Im told leave defaults and therefore the following:
Only option 3: "If the original folder cannot be found..." set to lets say c:\apps\goldmine\tmplinks is required
(however bare in mind original goldmine network drive g:\ and files drives f: are mapped on the remote).
and of course "Alow new linked files ..." is ticked.
"Attachments directory" = c:\apps\goldmine\mailbox\attach
"Save attachments as linked documents" is ticked
Do you need to mimic these settings on the network user (i.e. server not remote laptop installation of Goldmine) I imagine not because if they use the network version then they would try to save to the c:\apps\goldmine. UNLESS I am missing a trick with the sync settings regarding "original folder". I have seen some people mention a non existent letter like z: drive.
I have tried several different settings, but cannot achieve what i want... the above ^^^^ :)
I want to sync c:\ mailbox location and c: linked docs location to g:\ mailox location and g:\ docs location.
Please help.. Theres so much informaton and so many different people giving suggestions it is hard to work out the true answer.
I have used 6.7 a lot.. i am 7.0 certified and the particular client that I am currently working on is unfortunatley 6.5 ... yes i know .. they need to upgrade.. im getting there.
Many thanks in advance everyone. Who knows.. this may even become a sticky.
Need help on this ASAP... as i have a client synced up after a nasty 4000 attachment problem they caused with a corrupt email. They are synced up but referring to G:\ for their files on the remote. They are 6.5 DBase.
