If you connect mobile devices to Ghostlab and your computer IP changes, it’s a hassle to keep entering new Ghostlab server addresses – that’s why we’ve created a redirection service called 302.pm.
302.pm is a web service where you can obtain a unique URL for your Ghostlab instance – it looks something like http://302.pm/ABCDEF. This unique URL simply redirects to your Ghostlab server, so for example, to http://192.168.1.1:8005. Every time the Ghostlab server starts, it updates the redirect to match the IP address and port it has just obtained.
Then use the unique URL from 302.pm as a bookmark on all of your devices. When you connect to Ghostlab using this bookmark, you will never have to worry about getting the right IP/Port, since the Ghostlab server has already updated that information for you.
Does having a bookmark on 302.pm mean anyone can connect to my Ghostlab?
Answer: No, definitely not! The 302.pm URL simply redirects to the IP address where Ghostlab is running. If it’s a private address, somebody from outside your network will not be able to connect (unless you have configured this explicitly in your firewall).
