The URL of a file or folder inside the GSTP server has to have one of these formats:
gstp-server is usually ComputerId.UserId.goodsync (Mediated Addressing).
gstp-server can also be a symbolic or numeric IP address (gstp-server.my-company.com, 126.96.36.199).
The prefix can be 'file' or 'smb' or the prefix of any file system available on the GoodSync server.
remote-server is a server visible from the GS server using protocol 'prefix://'.
Typical GSTP URLs are:
- A folder c:\mystuff on GoodSync's server 'worker' of GoodSync Connect user 'test-user'. Note that remote-server here is empty as this folder is located on 'this computer', relative to GSTP server 'worker'.
- A folder my-folder on a share MYSHARE of SMB server MYSERVER that sits on the local network of GSTP server 'worker' of GoodSync Connect user test-user.
- Remote GSTP server of GoodSync Connect user test-user has Home File System and this URL points to folder 'my-folder' of server S0 of this file system. User of GSTP server who is connected to this file system does not see how this file system is implemented, as Home File System is a translator that does not reveal internal details of what it is serving.
