1. Configure a Remote Host Access
Go to Settings - Deployment and press + to add a new remote server access configuration:
Set up connection settings:
Switch to the Mappings tab and fill in a path to a remote app:
2. Choose a Remote SDK

3. Synchronize Your Changes
To make your changes synchronized automatically go to Settings - Deployment - Options and set Upload changed files automatically to the default server to Always:
Please note, you can synchronize your files and folders manually or change the settings any time from Tools - Deployment menu. To browse remote host folders and files with color highlighting for synchronized ones go to Tools - Deployment - Browse Remote Host:
4. Work with a Remote Application
Now all the changes will be synchronized with a remote app. You can also run and debug your application:
Note you should use the same port number that is used on a remote host for running the app on a localhost.
