I am considering switching from Evernote to Joplin as I think it may satisfy better my needs as it is "multiplatform"...in fact in my family we run 3 OS: Linux (Ubuntu), Windows 10, Android on the smartphones and Joplin seems to be perfect for me.
My goal is to have the notes database only on my NAS, which is actually included in the DSL router. No access from outside via the internet, the database should only be accessed within the home network. The mobile devices, e.g. the smartphones max take notes offline and synchronize once connected within the home network.
I have installed Joplin on my Ubuntu PC and created a notes database on my NAS.
The NAS is mounted at boot with
//192.168.178.1/fritz.nas /media/FritzNAS cifs credentials=/home/e6440/.smbcredentials,uid=1000,gid=1000,cache=none,noserverino 0 0
In Joplin I have set in the synchronization parameters:
and as absolute path
That works perfectly.
However, how can I synchronize with the NAS with my android smartphones? I am stuck with this.
Parallel to Joplin on the smartphone I installed the App X-Plore that allows me to connect to the NAS via Wifi. In X-Plore I created a Samba connection with the IP 192.168.178.1, the NAS shows there as FritzNAS, with Subfolders FRITZ.NAS/* and I can navigate through all the files. But I cannot figure out what parameters I need to enter in the Synchronization section of the android app. I did select File system, but what should be the entry in the sections synchronization folder
I tried already
What am I doing wrong, or is just Joplin not implemented (yet) to connect this way?
I hope somebody is willing to guide me
