@EMuns SMB is a network file sharing protocol that requires an open port on a computer or server to communicate with other systems. SMB ports generally use port numbers 139 and 445.

Thanks, I think I'm going to find an easier solution with the windows DLNA service. I'm reading up on it now. My main concern is privacy and security. Eric
