Caution: Beta version! One is when the computer sees network traffic, which pretty much keeps the computer on at all times, since there is quite often network traffic coming by, even though it might not be intended for the iMac Windows computers are known to notoriously keep sending stuff to the network, causing this type of traffic.
Is there a way that a folder appears on multiple hard drives as a path? It would be nice if it makes SMBup 1 x Action. So 1 x Action, but 4 paths. Combining paths like that is probably not possible. Some people appear to still experience issues, as seen in this Apple Forum thread. This starts the SMB service. You can find it in the menu bar.
I had to go thru the trouble of reloading the Maverick again, so is there anyway to fix the network adapter? I had to uninstal and reinstall the virtualbox with a certain parameter to get the bridge mode to work until a fix is found for. Unfortunately I could not get this to work to scan to desktop.

SMBUp seemed to install ok and i finally managed to ad share only user. My Dell Laserprinter has a scan option that allows to scan to a shared folder. Or … use FTP like a guy did in this article. Thank you sooooo much for the article and pointers, installed on my macmini which can now be seen by atv2 with xbmc, all good Thanks for taking the time to post a nice feedback Jim! Any suggestions? Never mind.
I logged out and back in and it works. And, I can share folders to a Linux machine. Glad it works well for you!
But I cannot confirm this yet. I have found the developer to be pretty active, so you could post a question on his website, or I could try contacting him. I have been trying to hook up my Mede8er 3d media server for two days.
Many computer people assume others know what all their abbreviations and jargon mean. A smart person though realizes that not everyone knows everything they know. That is where you came in and made the difference. Thanks Brad! Happy Holidays and thanks again for taking the time and effort to post a nice feedback.

Thanks for this well considered and clearly written guide. Am I doing something wrong? Thank you for the compliment! I did find two posts that might be helpful to get this running right: Github , all manual at MacWorld , and possible the most helpful is this post at MacRumors. Happy New Year! Since getting a new computer with El Capitan, I can sometimes wait 10 minutes just for finder to populate the folder lists.
Waiting for 10 minutes seems a little excessive for retrieving a directory list. Seems to me there might be something else not quite right. What also might help is disabling all kinds of extra tools like virus scanners, tools like Blue Harvest which remove hidden Apple files from network shares , etc. Also worth a try to access the same shares from a different computer, running a different OS or a different OS version. Thanks for the quick response. I have found that the Finder is not the fastest either.
Definitely worth the try. After your earlier post, I had a look at the built in Anti Virus scanner on the NAS and found that Live scan was scanning all traffic in and out. So I excluded one of the shares from the live scan and hey presto, fast Finder access again. Probably saved me hours and a lot of banging my head against the wall. Thanks for posting your fix as well — I hope others will benefit from it aswel!
I have been searching for days for instructions like yours and had no luck until now! So a big thank you :. I am trying to get access to some international channels for my grandparents, however, the specific channels instruct me to download a zip file. Also have a google nexus player in the house if the shield will give me too much hassle. Once I follow your instructions on sharing a folder with the Kodi zip file I need, how on earth do I access this zip file from Kodi? Go to settings, file manager..
Could someone please help with explaining how to do this. Would love to get these international channels going for my grandparents but am stuck up to this point. The file is on your Mac, so how do you get that file on either of these 2 players. First option would be using your network. It seems that these files are showing up empty. However, they are not.
Am I missing something here? What could be the issue? I have figured out what was going wrong!
I was downloading the zip files from Safari, which automatically opened the zip, which left me with the folder. This is why Kodi was not allowing me to open the file, because it was a folder and not a zip file! So I tried downloading from the Chrome browser, and it downloaded as a zip file. When accessed through Kodi, this worked!
