Destination Setup Screen

Learn the User Interface

The Destination Setup screen is where a destination is created or edited. The destination holds the Network Path, which is the location of your shared folder on your computer, as well as the Username and Password used to access it. Correct setup of a destination is important to ensure you can send images without issue. Once the destination is setup it is saved, so most people will only need to create a destination once per shared folder. The information used to setup a destination must match the settings of the shared folder to work. For information on how to setup a shared folder see the Create a Shared Folder setup guide. All items on this screen are text fields. Tap an item to edit.
A. The Destination button will take you back to the Destination List screen. If you are creating a new destination, it will be added to the list unless you did not enter any information, in which case a new destination will not be created.

B. This text field holds the Windows username that has access to the shared folder specified by the Network Path. This user must have Read/Write permission to the shared folder to send images. If you have setup the shared folder for 'Anonymous' access, then leave this field blank. To learn how to setup user permissions see the Create a Shared Folder setup guide.

C. This text field holds the password for the Windows username specified in 'Username'. This is the same password you would use in Windows if you were using this username. Users with no password are currently not supported. If you desire this then Anonymous login should be used instead. If you are using Anonymous access, leave this field blank.

D. This text field holds the Nickname that you will give to represent this destination. You can name it whatever you want. Make your nickname something that is recognizable, so you can remember which shared folder it will send to.

E. This text field holds the 'Network Path'. Both forward-slashes "/" and back-slashes "\" are allowed, but do not mix the two. To find the Network Path of a Shared folder in Windows: Right click the shared folder and click the 'Sharing' tab. You should see the Network Path on this page. If you don't see a Network path in windows, be sure to follow the Create a Shared Folder setup guide to configure the folder properly. If this field is empty, you won't be able to use it to send images!

Example: "//server/share" + "/path/"(optional)

The Network path is composed of two main parts. The first part "server" is after the first two slashes "//". This can be either the 'Name' of your computer or the computer's local IP address. The second part is after the computer name and another "/". This is the Shared folder's name. Optionally you can include a path to a sub-folder after the shared folder's name.
