I only need to be able to do the following:
- stream/download via Android app,
stream/download via FTP access
stream/download via WD desktop app
(so I DO NOT need it to show up on network-connected TVs, as a DLNA server, on other PCs on same network, or anything like that)
Does this mean I can turn off “media serving” on all shares, disable the whole “media server” nightmare that seems to crash the WD My Cloud every time I connect it to something ?
In particular, I would prefer if the WDMC was NOT visible on the local network in any way, except if I should happen to be there with my laptop/phone and need access, in which case I suppose the Android / desktop app will get me in ?
So is DLNA only applicable for local access ?
Thank you for your help.
