Your instructions are so clear, that I had absolutely no problem following them and getting everything to work. My Fire TV stick kodi works great now with my mac shares. Hi Mochi! Thanks for leaving a positive feedback — glad to hear it worked well for you as well. I too had done several attempts in the past to get this going. The app works well, but the proper steps can be confusing for the user.
This is a very nice post and a fantastic tutorial for SMBUp. Most of these are covered in the FAQ linked in the App page, but that tends to be missed.
XBMC old versions - Mac
Most devices out there use samba, too, so they support old-school SMB. Of course, any of the above requires admin privileges so the padlock needs to be unlocked and it locks after 5 minutes, a limitation of OS X. I develop some apps myself as well, even though they might not be the most significant apps in the world, working on them consumes a lot of time.
But I would say that is maybe 1 in 25, users … which is a shame. If every user would donate a buck, it would cover my time and server expenses. I try to donate where I can as well — for apps that I use all the time. Thanks again for contacting me! About the donations, those numbers align with mine. I have an auto-update mechanism that, since it connects to check for new versions, gives me an idea of how many users there are for my programs.
My rough calculation was 1 in 20, so thereabouts.
Yeah, interesting point on Mac users being grateful for solutions as there are not that many. I just noticed that the link on your website is actually linking to your post hear instead of to the top of the page … maybe you could update it when you get around to it?
The correct links are. Thanks again for posting a link to this article. Hi can someone please help me, i have installed smbup and setup shares and they work but as soon as i restart my Mac the shares are no longer available, how do I get around this. Hope this helps. SMBUp solves it except for the issue with loosing the shares when the computer starts up. Adding it to login items will mean I must be logged into the account to have the shares working. I see Samba3 files config files and launch scritps are installed and could play a bit with them on command line, but my Shares will only show up once I fire up SMBup.
I would like to have the shares showing up whenever the computer starts, even without any user account being logged in, how can I attain that? Trying to troubleshoot further and will post the answer here if I ever find it. If I click the start button on SMBup it starts ok. Maybe a permission issue. Anyway, all OK here now. Thanks for leaving a nice feedback!
Great product. Installed it and it is working well. How do I set it up to start the service when I login in. Have I missed something? Ehm … I have not run into that scenario … that can be pretty annoying to have to grant access each time you boot your computer. I actually keep my computer laptop in standby pretty much all the time. I have not had time to test this yet, but your Mac might be able to access the KeyChain to authenticate — not sure how helpful that will be though Apple KB article.
I looked around this AM and went to manager users. I am unable to to add a user and my user name is in the delete user area and the only user available is Guest. Or did you mean in SMBUp? However; mine never asks for a password. Could it be that your user account does not have full admin rights? If these options are grey; use the padlock to enable them. He says user and pw do not match but it is not true.. Therefore the WDTV works fine. I installed SMBUp hoping to solve the problem but is not successful. Or vice versa of course. You might have to experiment with those settings.
Hi, thanks so much for your article. Now it;s working. But… the videos stop at some point and the start again, but then they stop again, and for good. I think this happens when the iMac goes to sleep. Could this be the reason? Is there a way to fix it? And, I cannot even see it when the computer is in the sleep mode. Another issue might be your Mac falling asleep, although one would hope things restore normally when waking up. Obviously, while accessing your Mac, it should stay awake.
Another issue might be that the Amazon Fire TV is not restoring the connection properly either. Maybe after a few attempts it simply decides to call it the day and ignore it as of then. One is when the computer sees network traffic, which pretty much keeps the computer on at all times, since there is quite often network traffic coming by, even though it might not be intended for the iMac Windows computers are known to notoriously keep sending stuff to the network, causing this type of traffic. Is there a way that a folder appears on multiple hard drives as a path? It would be nice if it makes SMBup 1 x Action.
So 1 x Action, but 4 paths. Combining paths like that is probably not possible. Some people appear to still experience issues, as seen in this Apple Forum thread. This starts the SMB service. You can find it in the menu bar. I had to go thru the trouble of reloading the Maverick again, so is there anyway to fix the network adapter? I had to uninstal and reinstall the virtualbox with a certain parameter to get the bridge mode to work until a fix is found for.
Unfortunately I could not get this to work to scan to desktop. SMBUp seemed to install ok and i finally managed to ad share only user. My Dell Laserprinter has a scan option that allows to scan to a shared folder. Or … use FTP like a guy did in this article. Thank you sooooo much for the article and pointers, installed on my macmini which can now be seen by atv2 with xbmc, all good Thanks for taking the time to post a nice feedback Jim! Any suggestions? Never mind. I logged out and back in and it works.
And, I can share folders to a Linux machine. Glad it works well for you! But I cannot confirm this yet. I have found the developer to be pretty active, so you could post a question on his website, or I could try contacting him. I have been trying to hook up my Mede8er 3d media server for two days. Many computer people assume others know what all their abbreviations and jargon mean. A smart person though realizes that not everyone knows everything they know.
That is where you came in and made the difference.

Thanks Brad! Happy Holidays and thanks again for taking the time and effort to post a nice feedback. Thanks for this well considered and clearly written guide. Am I doing something wrong? Thank you for the compliment! I did find two posts that might be helpful to get this running right: Github , all manual at MacWorld , and possible the most helpful is this post at MacRumors.
Happy New Year! Since getting a new computer with El Capitan, I can sometimes wait 10 minutes just for finder to populate the folder lists. Waiting for 10 minutes seems a little excessive for retrieving a directory list. Seems to me there might be something else not quite right. What also might help is disabling all kinds of extra tools like virus scanners, tools like Blue Harvest which remove hidden Apple files from network shares , etc.
Also worth a try to access the same shares from a different computer, running a different OS or a different OS version. Thanks for the quick response. I have found that the Finder is not the fastest either. Definitely worth the try. After your earlier post, I had a look at the built in Anti Virus scanner on the NAS and found that Live scan was scanning all traffic in and out.
Kodi (formerly XBMC – Mac) 17.0
So I excluded one of the shares from the live scan and hey presto, fast Finder access again. Probably saved me hours and a lot of banging my head against the wall. Thanks for posting your fix as well — I hope others will benefit from it aswel! I have been searching for days for instructions like yours and had no luck until now!
So a big thank you :. I am trying to get access to some international channels for my grandparents, however, the specific channels instruct me to download a zip file. Also have a google nexus player in the house if the shield will give me too much hassle. Once I follow your instructions on sharing a folder with the Kodi zip file I need, how on earth do I access this zip file from Kodi? Go to settings, file manager.. Could someone please help with explaining how to do this. Would love to get these international channels going for my grandparents but am stuck up to this point.
The file is on your Mac, so how do you get that file on either of these 2 players. The question arises, which OS version is the one that gets the best performance out of my system. Has there been some comparison of the performance with different OSs? For my iMac 24" I have tested all newer versions on different volumes , and But it depends what you want to do and what you like - newer systems offers new features and for me this is exactly why I stay on AutoSave and recent application documents after computer re start might be keywords By the way: I would recommend to install LittleSnitch.

That gave my MacBook a huge speed improvement.
