Default [APP][2.1+] Droid NAS - SMB server for Android

Droid NAS allows you to share folders over a Wi-Fi network, making your Android device visible as a Bonjour computer in the Finder on your Mac. Turn your phone or tablet into a wireless flash drive with a single tap!



Different profiles can be used to quickly choose which folders to share. Assign your home or office Wi-Fi networks to profiles and Droid NAS will auto-select profiles on start.

Supported systems:
- Mac OS X.
- Android: apps like ES File Explorer, Solid Explorer, GTVBox Video Player.
- Windows is NOT supported because it can't connect to SMB servers via a non-standard port.
- Linux most probably also won't work.

Recent changes:

- Added password protection.

The irony... You made a server with a Windows protocol (more or less) that don't work on Windows. xD

But what's the advantage of this over a FTP server (I'm not a Network guy)

Thanks to Bonjour protocol, Android device will appears automatically in Finder and you can work with it like you work with a flash drive. E.g. you can edit a documents directly on the device.

I've seen another SMB server on this XDA, but you need a root access to use the default port. Big question to ROM developers - can Android be modified to allow ports numbers < 1000 for apps like this?

It's only possible for console apps in rooted devices, will be happy if there will be some way to do it.

Version 1.0.4 adds support for custom shares, e.g. external SD card.

It could be great a version for rooted device กกก then these users ( I`m one of thems) could enjoy enterely of this app with windows pc`s Is it so difficult to add up an option for these rooted devices? Maybe requesting some help to developer could solve this issue.

Anyway , thanks for so many efforts go on with your great app.
