How to access a private folder on WHS2011 from my XBOX360 ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • XBOX can see general Video/Pictures/Music folders, but my private folder is protected by password - can I still access it from my XBOX ? Currently XBOX is ignoring content of it.

  • That's correct. If you select a passworrd protected folder for streaming, you will be able to do so without th need to enter a password. This is a function of the DNLA specificarion which WHS uses for streaming.

  • I know nothing about XBOX, but I suspect it is seeing what you are streaming (assuming Media Streaming is switched on) - you can not stream from your private folder.

  • In fact it is possible to select my private folder for streaming via dashboard/media settings, but then it is not secured by any password.
