dc++ will not recognize my Synology server where all my files are stored

Asked by Jeanette on 2016-04-08

I have configured my router. I have added rules for Nortons. Everything was working perfectly.
Now when I try to add files to my dc++ share, it does not see my Synology server where all the files are stored. It did once upon a time but I deleted the files from dc++. Now it can't find them again to start over.
I can access the server from all computers and the household network. All the correct settings are checked on the Synology server to allow it to share.
I am completely at a loss as to what to do.

DC++ does not access network resources in any other ways than other programs so if they're available in e.g. the Windows Explorer then it should be recognized.
You haven't provided information about how the your server's share is accessed though, is it a conventional SMB share accessed through a UNC path or a mapped drive or some other ways/protocols maybe one that require 3rd party software from your server's manufacturer.
DC++ supports UNC path's but that might be a little shaky so I recommend you to create a conventional mapped drive for your server's share and add that to the DC++ sharing interface. This way it should work properly unless there's some other error that keeps DC++ from hashing the files, so checking the system log for errors is also advisable.

Can you help with this problem?
