Can Beersmith Mobile access my home NAS drive?
« on: January 28, 2017, 12:53:45 PM »
I have Beersmith set up on two computers, one in my office and one in the shop/brewery.  They share the same doc folder, which is on a Network Attached Storage (NAS) drive on the home network.  It all works very smoothly.  Is there any way for Beersmith Mobile to also access recipes on the NAS drive?  I'm familiar with the cloud, but frankly I'd like to keep it all in house. 

Thanks, Mike

I do not recommend using a networked drive.  Many people have lost data doing this since there is nothing in BeerSmith to prevent two copies from overwriting each other.  I recommend instead just installing them separately on the local drive and using the cloud folder to share recipes across the two.
