How to change the server path while creating Metadata?

Hi,
I am preparing the Metadata for file delimited and while creating this i want to change the server from Localhost to other server in which talend is running. But Server field is showing disabled here. So is there any way to change server path and select the file path from sever instead of local machine?
Screen shot attached for reference.
Thanks.

Re: How to change the server path while creating Metadata?

Hi
It does not support a remote file, copy the file to local machine and define its metadata. Afterwards, you can export all of the fields including file path as context variables so that you can change its value when the job is executed out of studio or from TAC.
