top solid cloud files

Unread post by OMG » Mon Jan 21, 2019 1:30 pm


We have 7 Top Solid licences installed in two different geographic locations and we want that all 7 users to work in the same "Projects" folder located somewhere in cloud. We found a cloud storage provider ( which offers ftp access to a folder I've created in their cloud but I couldn't browse this folder from Top Solid and I can't locally map a ftp location to see it like a disk in My Computer, with a letter assigned.

Which is the procedure in a situation like that?



later edit: any other solution is accepted, I'm not stuck into the ftp idea :)

I have mapped a drive to a FTP site before it works. But I would not suggest working from a file in the cloud it would be slow. Also make sure your Standards library are using the same map drive letter and setup a synchronize with cloud files. Best way to do this as I see it would be to take the file from the FTP to local file structure that matches work on it then put it back on ftp when done
