Re: How to connect Mac Pro to AC Ryan HD
Hi, here's another poor soul trying to connect his iMac to the PlayOn.
I managed to get FTP working - sometimes.
What I have not managed is to get access through Windows sharing aka SMB.
One of the earlier posters said "on your POHD go to network -> My shortcuts".
Problem 1: I do not see anything about shortcuts in the "network" menu.
Problem 2: I've created a special playon user, granted sharing through SMB in iMac's settings, still my PlayOn will not connect to it. "Login failed".
Problem 3: trying to access the PlayOn on my iMac via Go -> Connect to server -> smb://
<ip address> fails.
Can someone from AC Ryan support please create a simple step-by-step description on how to connect an iMac to PlayOn? This should be better than a nbunch of links to articles which relate to the problems, but do not solve it. Thanks.
(Note: I am a different 'rainman'
-iMac running OSX 10.5, wireless connection to router.
-PlayOn latest firmware, wired connection to router.
