Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I would like to be able to use a mobile network account while sitting at my server.

I had os x server 10.6 running on a mac mini server but recently got a new quad core iMac and want to take advantage of the extra power.

My problem - I can sit at the server and log into the mobile network account but can not get it to sync back. When I attempt to sync it get error message that the afp share point is unavailable and that the files are hosted locally.

My goal is to be able to use the new iMac as the server and set a user account so that it remains synced so when the account is accessed from other clients, particularly my macbook pro.

Is mobile account the best route? Would an external account be a better option.

Any advice or ideas of where to read up on this would be much appreciated.
