Mounting an External Drive
Please note: The mounting process is always based on your individual application of it. The parameters may vary depending on your system. Make sure you have a valid access through your local network for the network share you want to add. With devices like NAS’ you can add a specific login and folders for the share you want to add to your device.
Start your web browser and type
http://max2play/ (or the hostname you have given to the particular device, respectively) into the URL bar in order to get access to the Max2Play browser interface.
Go to the menu item “Filesystem/Mount”.
In the first field, you start with two forward slashes, followed by the IP or hostname of the source device and then your shared path, e.g.
//192.168.1.100/share. You can see all available network devices by clicking the blue button “Show Network Devices”.
In the second field, you enter the destination path within the Max2Play’s filesystem, where you want the network share to be attached to, e.g.
Important: Only use folders under /mnt/ or /media/.
Depending on your host device, the third field requires you to enter the type of the filesystem protocol. Mostly
The last field requires your login information that you set up for the share. You can copy and paste the line from the help section
user=name,password=pass,sec=ntlm,iocharset=utf8 and just replace “name” with the username and “pass” with the password.
Important: Always enter the parameter “sec=ntlm” in the last field. Click the “Show Help” button to see which parameters should be entered for your mount.
When you have entered all your necessary parameters, click “save” to add the new share.
