Log In to ServerSync

ServerSync captures changes in a local Windows File Server and synchronizes them to a remote FileCloud Server or FileCloud Online site.

In order to complete the seamless synchronization, ServerSync must be able to log in to a remote FileCloud site using the following credentials:

  • FileCloud site URL
  • Account name
  • Account password
  • (Optional) Device authentication code

(warning) You can also sync file permissions. For that, you must log in with the user account that is the original owner of the files. Otherwise, folder-level permission synchronization will not work.

For example, if you are syncing the files in the team folder account, you should be logged in using the team folder account.

The Login settings can be accessed in the following ways:

  • The Home screen, in the Logged In As section by clicking Change.
  • The Settings screen, in the Account Settings section, by clicking Edit.

(lightbulb) It does not matter which screen you use to access the settings. They both function in the same way.
