  1. Under 'Enable FTP Server / Enable SAMBA Server', select the checkboxes of the items to enable.
  2. Set the permission for the data.

DLNA
DLNA

Configure and enable the DLNA function to let other devices with the DLNA function get access to the data on a disc in the drive or a USB storage device connected to Optical Smart Hub.

  1. Under 'DNLA Service' options, select 'Enable'.
  2. In the 'Server Name', enter the DNLA server name for the Optical Smart Hub.
  3. Click the Save button.

Note

  • When using DLNA functions, the indexing time for the USB storage device that is newly connected to the Optical Smart Hub can be long depending on the size and number of the files in the device.
  • The first-time file indexing for DLNA may take a long time depending on the size and number of the files in the storage device. Other products save the indexing file in the built-in HDD.
    Although this product uses the same method when the connected device is an external-type HDD, since this product can recognize a new device and allows removing a connected device, if a new device is connected, this product performs full-indexing and it may take a couple of minutes.
  • The 'Create Thumbnail' option requires a longer indexing time (about 2 seconds per file). You can disable it to reduce indexing time.
iSCSI
iSCSI

Configure the settings to let other devices connected to the IP network via iSCSI get access to the data on a disc in the drive or a USB storage device connected to Optical Smart Hub. If you enable this function, you can use your Optical Smart Hub as a wireless ODD through the iSCSI initiator to be installed on your PC.

  1. Under 'iSCSI Service' options, select 'Enable'.
  2. In the 'Target Name', enter the iSCSI target name for the Optical Smart Hub.
