Post by kaostech » Thu Nov 27, 2014 6:45 am

Hi
This may have been talked about but cant find the post, I would like to stream my files via UMS From Pc to Pc but do not know how. I can stream to all of my other devices EG: ps3, xbox 360, tablet, I would love to use this as a UMS for the household to as there is another 2 PC's in different rooms that want what I have lol. Main server PC(Mine) TO PC, how do I do this. I must be getting older hahahaha. Thankyou

Fast method. Use the UMS web UI and browse in from the other PCs.

First you must have version 4+ or 5+. Then just start UMS. Now point your browser to
[url]http://<ip%20of%20your%20node%20here>:9001[/url]
and your done. To test type 127.0.0.1 as ip in a browser on the same node as you run UMS from.

I am able to see UMS in the network locations (in "My Computer") however when I select UMS, some folders do not show up correctly and also some files are missing/hidden. Is there a way to stream and have PC to PC video abilities this way? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks, Matt

If you have PCs running on the Windows OS why you don't simply share folders?
