Setting up Samba share on Gen3   

Postby esojmc » Mon Nov 23, 2015 7:41 pm

Hello Everyone. I have a 32GB USB drive and I placed all the required files on the drive and followed the process and now I am running 2.02.32-WDLXTV_Gen3-0.1.6. What I would like to do next is to setup Samba on the WDLXTV and share the 32GB drive to other PC's on my network. I am assuming that's possible. Question is how? Are there any procedure out there on how to do that? Any help appreciated.

Thanks,
Martin

I am really enjoying the new firmware. It's much more stable than the original. The original firmware was getting impossible to use with all the lock ups and slowdown. Anyway, I think I have figured out the samba. There is a file /tmp/smb.conf that already shares the USB drive. I created a directory called "download" and on the windows machine mounted \\192.168.1.110\WDTV-LIVE\download. It's all working like how I want it to. I am very happy :)
