Hi peoples, I will try and keep it short and sweet but stick with me. Have got a Pro that i am looking to add samba to so i can use an Android device to manipulate files back and forth. As far as i have figured (being a total N00b), i gain controll of my plug using SSH and install a package installer which i then use to install Samba, right?. The questions i have are as follows, 1, i have read a few things and one of them said it ran from a USB stick, is this right or is this a different method?. 2, will i lose any of the functionality that i allready have, eg the mobile app and web UI?. 3 , Are there any other maintenance requirements needed after i have applied the extras, eg anthing needed to be done to HDD's that are or will be plugged in. Like i said lol stick with me.
. I am sure there are a million others things i should have asked but hey i gotta start somewhere. Thanks in advance for any advice offered. Oh and 4, Do these plugs auto update firmware/OS? and if so will it still retain my extras after.
