    Hi Tobias,
    this is not really a feature request, but I can't open a pull request on bitbucket:
    Since I failed at setting up a development environment under windows I wanted to build RDS under linux. This is because I have just too little experience with windows systems and wanted to make my life easier.
    I modified the RDS source code slightly so that I can build it under linux (for debugging purposes). I also have a cross-compilation setup, so I can build the windows binary under linux.
    Are you interested in merging any of this into the official repo?
    If you want to have a look I can send you a patch with my changes.
    Also, I just wanted to let you know that I really appreciate how clean the code is. This is a nice project to dive into.

    Hi Dario, Thanks for offering this! Yes, if you could send me your patches (or a link to the repo with your fork) I will run a diff and see what needs to be changed. The focus for RDS will remain Windows, as the MRI host systems are all running under Windows, but if there are only few changes needed to make it compile under Linux, we can certainly include these changes.

    I just sent you an email with the patch attached. I don't have a way to test if it still compiles on a windows system though, so you might want to test that before merging it into the official repo.

    Many thanks Dario! Received the patches and will merge the changes into the main branch

    Here in Tübingen we have a pTx system at our UHF scanner. With that comes a second Siemens console. Depending on if we use the single channel system or the pTx system one of the two consoles is connected to the scanner network and can be used to operate the scanner and to export raw data.
    That means for using RDS we need to synchronize the ID of the last processed file (stored in lpfi.ini) between both systems.
    I implemented the possibility to have lpfi.ini on a remote path (in our case a network file system) instead of storing it in the RDS program directory. It's read in the beginning of the transfer action (in rdsRaid::readRaidList()).
    So far it seems to work well on our system. If you want to include the changes into the official code, you can find them here:
    https://bitbucket.org/dabosch/yarraclient/src/remoteLPFI/

    (yes, I finally managed to fork the official repo into bitbucket and push my changes there, so I don't have to email you patch files)

    Hi Dario, Sorry, just saw this. Yeah, that might be a useful extension for some sites with dual-boot option. Will take a look at your implementation and probably integrate it as hidden feature that can be activated from the .ini file

    @dabosch
    Have you looked at this, and do you have any plans to integrate such a functionality?

    @tblock79
    Hi Dario, Sorry for the late answer! I integrated support for it into the new version (to be released soon), but without UI option as it is a rather specific option. Thus, you have to configure it directly in the RDS.ini file

    Great, thanks! I'm looking forward to using that one soon

    It would be really helpful to have the RDS client linked to the network and backup settings to a given protocol, rather than being global settings. For instance I would like to have a protocol that looks for all "reasearchProtocol1" scans and puts them on network drive 1 (with automatic nightly backup), then another protocol that looks for all "reasearchProtocol2" scans and puts them on network drive 2 (with automatic manual backup only). If thats currently possible, can you please walk me through how to set that up?
