    Lightbulb Ftp?

    Okay, this may be too weird for you, so I'll understand if you don't want to implement it, but what about FTP uploading?

    it seems like it would be easy enough to have it set up so you could recieve files from a web server by regular HTTP access, but it also seems like it would be handy to be able to also upload via FTP.

    that way, when you're on the road you could have it automatically upload log files or whatever whenever you found an available WiFi hotspot. Just think, if you're on a long road trip cross-country, you could have it automatically upload your digital photos

    or if you are one of those with internet access via your cell phone, you could sync anywhere.

    Like I said, it does seem like a tangent from the original idea of syncing when you pull into your own driveway... but given the number of people that have wireless routers at home, and how easy it is to set up a simple FTP server, you could have it sync when you pull into anyone's driveway
    But don't take it from me! here's a quote from a real, live newbie:

    I'm not sure why syncing on the move would require a different protocol. I implemented something a while back that allows multiple IP addresses to be configured on the client side (it's in the current release). This allows you to use one of them for an internal address (when you pull up at home) and one or more for other addresses (eg accessing your publilc IP while on the move).

    As I'm sure you're aware, FTP is just an IP connection on a specific port number, with a command protocol running over the top. So effectively there's no difference between that and my proprietary IP protocol.

    You can use the 'upload only' sync option to upload files from the client to the server.

    Okay, fair enough... everything you say makes perfect sense. I didn't spend enough time thinking it over before posting, I apologize

    haha, don't feel bad, you didn't exactly shoot my idea down... essentially you told me that what I was hoping for is already possible, which is probably the best answer I could hope for
