  5. I've personally tested it without any issues, before you start flooding my email, please do your part to spend some time to go through, check & re-check everything again, it should work just fine !
  6. If you prefer easier and faster setup, you may choose to restore the default setup file (below), make sure you read and understand the "ReadMe" file first!

Known issues:

  1. Based on my test, after plug-in the external USB2 HDD, it can detect, but the device's name won't show up under Network browsing.  The work around is to enter the device's IP manually (eg: \\\ ) then the share folder will show up.
