A little help please,
I have my Playbook properly connected to my network. I want to be able to browse to one of my servers on the network to be able to upload/download files to/from the playbook. I don't want to have to do it through another PC on the network. I want to be able to do it directly from my playbook.
I have all SMB/CIFS windows shares on my internal network. All of my other devices (computers, media players, other)can browse to any of my servers. I'd like to be able to do the same with my playbook.....
What would be nice; be able to play any media file from the server. Download a document, work on it and be able to save it on the server. Transfer files to/from server/playbook to take on the go.
Please, if someone knows how to set this up, submit a step-by-step tutorial with as much info as possible.

The PlayBook can access files on a Windows computer by using an app called Ghost Commander. I have not done this myself as I tend to move files to and from the PlayBook over WiFi from my desktop computer. Whether this would work in accessing a server proper is another matter but it should be possible if it is a Windows server. The following blog discusses how to set up the PlayBook and computer to allow the PlayBook to browse and transfer files:
There may be better experts in this forum who can shed some light on the matter.
