Could someone point me to instructions or a tutorial for how I would go about enabling this drive to work w/ SMB? Thanks.
It already does. It’s configured out of the factory.
One more question: do I need to use the bundled software to configure the actual shares?
Nope… The configuration is all done through the Web UI.
Thank you very much.
If you have access via ssh you are obvious able to amend the smb configurations as common in any debian (Linux) system. There are a lot of how-to’s in the web about that topic.
I have for my purpose installed webmin on the box to use a GUI for that purpose.
