To set up a new MobileTogether server, do the following:


1.Tap the Menu (or Options) key on your device and select Settings.

2.In the toolbar (at the top of the Settings page), tap Add Server (the plus-symbol icon). This displays the Server Settings page.

3.Complete the fields of the Server Settings page. When inside a field, tap Next to go to the next field. Tap Save when you finish. The fields are, in display order:


Name: The name by which the server will be known on your device

Address: The fully qualified domain name (FQDN) or IP address of the MobileTogether Server

Port: The server port on which MobileTogether Server is available. MobileTogether Server defaults are 8083 for HTTP, and 8084 for HTTPS

Use SSL: SSL can be used if this has been set up on the MobileTogether Server. The setting up of SSL is described in the MobileTogether Server documentation.

User name: The MobileTogether Server user account to use when the client connects to the server. If none has been assigned to you by your MobileTogether Server administrator, use anonymous

Password: The password of the MobileTogether Server user account. If anonymous is the user name, no password is required. The Show Password option allows you to see the password characters

Login: You can access a server directly by using the login name/password of a MobileTogether Server user account. Some servers additionally allow the users of specific domains to log in with their domain logins. If this is the case, then the allowed domains are listed as options for this setting. Select the domain you want, and then enter your domain login details (name and password) in the respective fields.

Save Password: The password that you enter can be saved by switching this option to On. (If you use a domain account to log in, password saving might not be enabled. Consult your MobileTogether administrator in this case.)


4.To save the server settings, tap Save after finishing with the Password field.

5.Tap the Back key of the device to return to the Settings page. The added server will be listed there.
