It would be nice to log into our server to pull down our custom address book.

This has already been implemented:

Self-hosted server solution page , see "Sync server role" section.

Also, you refer directly to the tutorial in the documentation about how to set up sync: https://www.remoteutilities.com/support/docs/setting-up-sync-server/

Hope that helps.

Hi Conrad,

I've setup server sync with address books (have it working with the viewer), but for the life of me, I cannot get the drop down from android.

I've added my server inside the app > settings > default connection properties > ru server.

When I open the app, there seems to be no area to enter username/passwords to connect to the server.

Am I missing something?

Hello Charles,

The mobile client is a bit basic now. We'll be revamping it soon anyway.

Gotcha! I've been reading about the update soon, but was trying to get it to work in the meantime.

I am in love with the product!
