DEVONthink Pro Office features a built-in web server that makes sharing your documents on your
local area network as well as over the Internet a one-click action. It also comes with an Web-2.0-ish web
application that lets your access your database from an Apple iPhone.
As soon as the Web server is started, other users can use a standard Web browser to search your
database, view documents, and download them.
Enter all necessary details (see below) and click the Start button to start the Web server to make all
documents in every shared database (you switch on sharing in the Database Properties panel) available
for searching. If you or others have problems accessing your DEVONthink Pro Office database with a
Web browser, click the Log button to check the log for error messages and other information that could
be helpful to solve the problem.
Note: When you switch to another database, the server will be automatically switched off
for the safety of your data unless you have checked 'Launch on Startup.'
DEVONthink Pro Office shows the name and two URLs for your database at the bottom of the window
as soon as the server is started. Use either the Bonjour services list of the Safari Bookmarks view or
enter the shown URLs into the address field of your Web browser to access your database. Use the
numeric address if the Bonjour does not work for your network.
To learn more about using the web interface, the iPhone web application, as well as making your
database available from the 'outside' Internet, please read on here.
Enter a distinct name for your computer here that identifies it on your local network using Bonjour.
This name will be shown, e.g., in the list of Bonjour services on other Macs on your network. Switch,
e.g., to the Bookmarks view in Safari and select Bonjour in the sidebar.
These settings define the base URL of your database (used for publishing to the Internet) and the TCP/
IP port number it uses.
• Domain: If you are publishing your DEVONthink Pro Office database on a wide-area
network (WAN) or the Internet, enter the base URL of your site here. This adjusts all
relative links to this URL so that they are working in the WAN/Internet environment
