Which protocols does your nas use?
Installing a webserver is the easiest way :D
Hi Roland,

I am using FreeNAS with a 4Tb data raib disk system, with an SMB data share.

I will install a web server to allow acces to the files

Hi Roland,

I tried the update and was updated from version 0.21 to 0.23

I now have to work how to load uef files from a NAS drive, with no web server.

Or maybe just put in Apache web server to serve the Electron files

Re: A5000 repairs

Hi,

Maybe the reversed capacitors have been damaged due to the incorrect polarity and maybe creating a short between VCC and GND.

Try removing them and check the continuity.
