iOS vs macOS DT server; can DTTG server handle macOS DT3 indexed files?

Does it matter whether DTTG is the server or DT3 is if DT3 will be indexing folders on the macOS drive?

Overall, is it better to have the macOS or the iOS as the server?

Is there any way, with bonjour sync, to initiate a sync from DTTG if the mac is asleep and/or DT3 is closed?

As iOS devices sleep much more often, it’s usually recommended to use a Mac. In addition, it’s not recommended to use more than one server.

My mac is more likely to be asleep and out of reach when I am at my iPad than my iPad is to be out of reach when I am at my mac. Hence, I’m wondering,

If I turn off the macOS server and turn on the iPad server, will the indexed files on my mac still be handled about the same as they are now?

This shouldn’t make a difference.
