On Windows systems it is possible to use FTP to mount the live folder of a JobScheduler on a remote computer as a network drive and then edit the JobScheduler objects as if they were local.
In Windows Explorer select:
Tools | Map network drive | Connect to a Web-Site that you can use to store your documents and pictures
In the Add network Location Wizard select:
Next | Choose a custom location | Next
ftp://WriteUserName:WriteUserPwd@host:21which would open the FTP server root directory
ftp://WriteUserName:WriteUserPwd@homer.sos:21/PathToSchedulerConfigFolder which would access the JobScheduler config folder
Enter a name for the drive:
Test-FTP and select
Next | Finish
If the above does not work, check that the following setting is selected:
Start | Control panel | Internet properties | Advanced tab | Section BrowsingEnable FTP folder view (outside of Internet Explorer).
FTP can also be used to mount network drives in other Windows versions, but then with slightly different menu items. See your Windows help if you have problems.
The mounted drive can now be selected in JOE as described in the JOE documentation.
The remote JobScheduler can now be opened as if it were running locally. It is not necessary to use the menu points:
