Good app. Convenient and intuitive interface, all the necessary settings are available. But there is one problem. If the “Always show UI” option is disabled, then the service does not start correctly. Shared folders are visible in Network Neighborhood but won't open. To restore access to files, I have to restart the service manually. If the “Always show UI” option is enabled, then the service starts correctly. If the developer fixes the problem, I will change the rating to 5 stars.

Looks great. I want non root access, so I added 1000 to the port numbers in the app. Then I mapped the ports in the router and opened them up in the firewall. Et voila! I see the phone as a network drive. Strangely, before, I could see all the other computers in the network but now they are gone, except for a Windows machine. I don't even see the workstation, itself. Anyway, that's not the real problem. The problem is that I cannot open the shared network folder. It gives a message about the device refusing connections. I gave 2stars because I really appreciate the effort you have taken. If you have any solution to my issue, I will gladly change the rating to 5 stars and probably buy the app.

Change the authentication to "Anonymous" instead of "Anonymous with confirmation" in "Users" page and let me know. Did you tried my solution ?

I'm using this on a rooted Android Box to share files from a 2TB USB 3.0 hard disk, it was easy to set up and shares are seen across the network, even on Windows machines .Worked right away but was kind of slow so I bought the unlocked app. Made a huge difference. Only minor issue to date is that the app doesn't start when the box reboots and the server doesn't start until I manually open the app. Other than that it gets the job done.
