I followed this instructions

On your PC:
1: Create a folder somewhere on the PC. (Dont use any spaces in the name)
2: Right Click the folder -> Select Properties -> Select the Sharing tab -> Tick 'Share this folder on the network' and if you want to write to it tick 'Allow network users to change my files'.
3: Click 'Apply'

On the Dreambox:
1: Go to Blue Panel -> Extras / Setup -> Automount
2: Press the yellow button to add a new share.
3: Leave the mountpoint as 'nfs'.
4: Change the Client IP to that of your PC.
5: In the dropdown menu select 'cifs'
6: In 'Client dir' enter the name of the folder you created earlier.
7: Enter your PC username and password in the provided slots.
8: Press the Green button to save.

Then I pressed the green button a second time in the Automount main menu 'restart'.
The mounted folder now appers under /automount/nfs.

Now... if I want to install a plugin that I store it in the shared folder on the PC.
I can only see that file if I use TuxBox Commander.
And using Execute runs it, but it only gets a few % then it stops and nothing happens...
I dont understand why...

Can files in a shared folder only be media files ?

ISTR there used to be an issue with XP home something along the line of it could nt make the permissions properly. I know I tried and tried to get it to work and failed.

Yet I can run media files off my linux NASbox no problem at all and set the share routes up onto an internal hard drive on the receiver Vu+ Duowithout too many problems..

What operating system are you using?
