View Full Version : shared folder vu solo

21st December, 2014, 08:20 PM
1. create a new folder on PC - call it 'vu'
2. create administrative user on PC - to keep things simple call the user 'vu' and the password 'vu'
3. share the folder : properties --> sharing --> advanced sharing --> make sure 'share this folder' is checked and click permissions --> make sure everybody has full control

Then on your Vu+ box

1. menu > setup > system > Network > Mount Manager
2. Add a new network mount point
3. Active - yes
local share name - nas (you can call it anything you like)
mount type - CIFS share
server IP - (enter PC IP here)
server share - /vu (make sure you include the /)
username - vu
password - vu

Did everything like above. But doesnt work!
I' m using windows 7 and vusolo with blackhole image.

What should i do now? Waiting for hours now..
When i press ok and confirm i get the message:

Please wait for activation of your network mount...
