I'm using RSSBandit to read my feeds. However since I work on lots of different computers, it would be nice to have a central version of my subscribed feeds and the posts I've read.
RSSBandit offers this feature (Tools->Options->Remote Storage). After selecting a location for remote storage (multiple protocols are supported), you can use Ctrl-Shift-U and D to up or download your feed info to the central location.
I wanted to do this using FTP. After trying to get an FTP server to run on my router (Linksys WRT54G), and not having any luck, because my SveaSoft firmware does not support multiple user accounts, I suddenly realized that I didn't have to go through al that trouble :-).
I still have homepage space lying around at my provider, which is accessible via FTP. After digging up the password they send me a long time ago (I also do not really use the provider mail account :-)) I was able to use this for storing my RSSBandit data.
The moral of this story: Sometimes the solution can be so easy you overlook it….
Btw, for the Dutch Chello users out there, look here for instructions on FTP-ing to your homepage area.
Hi Raimond, thanks for the info. But are you able to sync both the feeds and the items you have read. I tried it but though I am able to sync the feeds, it doesn’t remember the items read. Is this your experience also?
Each time before I read, I do a Ctrl-Shift-D (download). It hen pops up a dialog saying that its downloading. After I finish I do Ctrl-Shift-U (upload).
Using this pattern, it remembers the articles read and the feeds for me.
I use version 126.96.36.199, maybe you have an older version?
