Access to nas or share without mapping drive

Post by derilium » Mon Jan 07, 2019 9:06 pm

Is it possible to access media on a seperate box without using a mapped drive.

as an example:-
\\192.168.0.10\Multimedia\Music

Instead of mapping the drive, that way it would make things easier as devices would use the address instead of the mapping.

Yes but only if the downstream share doesn't require authentication. My Media runs as a Windows service under the Local System account therefore the share would need to allow this account access without authenticating.
