I have notes synced via Tomboy Web.

Now I reinstalled my system and I am trying to setup but it requires me to connect to a Server.

enter image description here

What is the server's name?

I'm fairly sure the server used to be Ubuntu One, but that feature has been removed. You can use your own server if you have access to one. Another option is to sync Tomboy with a local folder which in turn syncs with Ubuntu One (or Dropbox, or any other cloud service).

No, there were two separate options. Ubuntu One and tomboy Web. I always used Tomboy Web. And now there is a Tomboy Web option, but no server. Hm, if it was Ubuntu One server in Tomboy Web option then my Notes would not sync. – umpirsky Jun 24 '13 at 17:50
Well then it's your own server or one you have direct access to and can upload your notes to. I can't really tell you what that server is then. How were you syncing your notes before exactly? – Jun 24 '13 at 19:57
Not sure, I just know I used Tomboy Web, and some default value for server name. Now my notes are probably on that server and I cant access them :) – umpirsky Jun 24 '13 at 20:27
I think that was Ubuntu One (example 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5). So your notes would probably be on there. You should still be able to access them but you can't sync anymore. – Jun 25 '13 at 7:16
Yes, yes, probably. The page is 404 now. Thanks. – umpirsky Jun 25 '13 at 11:17
