Use WHS as network share RRS feed

  • Question

  • hi there,

    i recently got my WHS and i am new to all the networking stuff.
    erverything is working fine. but is the webfrontend the only possible way to acces the files on the WHS. I assumed that i can map \\homeservername\share to my explorer on a computer also located in the LAN. But I can´t even ping the WHS.
    I would like to save files directly to the WHS when I am in the same LAN as the WHS
    Any thougts?

    Thx a lot in advance

  • The shares on Windows Home Server are standard shares. You should certainly be able to reach them; if you can't, you may have a name resolution problem.  Can you ping your server by IP address?

    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
