  4. Navigate to [NAS] - [Shared Folder].
  5. From drop down list of [Shared Folder Name], select the folder.

  6. a) To share with PC and MAC (or Samba) clients check/enable [Win/MacOS(Samba)] box.

    b) To access the shared folder from Internet or Browser based application check/enable [Web Access].

    c) If you have Media Server (DLNA Server) enabled to specify public folder check/enable the [Media Server] box.
    There can only be one directory specified for media server.
    The supported media files in the directory will be made public and accessible from LAN network
    regardless of folder Access Limit settings.

    d) To specify BitTorrent download directory, check/enable the [BitTorrent] box.
    There can only be one directory specified for BitTorrent download.
  7. Finally, click apply button to commit the changes.

    Shared folder Registration will be displayed at the bottom of the page.
    To delete or edit the the Shared folder properties, click the [Edit] or [Delete] button on the right side of the registration.
    (You may have to slide the horizontal slide control all the way to the right to see the buttons.)
  8. Navigate to [NAS] - [Media Server], and set the check box for [Enable] option. Next click Apply.


    To confirm DLNA server is enabled refer to [Status] and it should indicate [Status] is [Enabled].
