Please check iPad: About File Sharing to know the sharing function in more detail.
If you have any problems using iNetFrame, please tell me with the debugging log file 🙂
If you have any problems using !iMediaSuite, please use the tiny debugging tool, upnpavchk (Perl Version), and send the output log as the following. To run the debugging tool, you have to be able to run Perl on your computer. !MacOSX is a easy platform to run the debugging tool because Perl is installed on !MacOSX as default.
$ unzip upnpavchk.zip $ cd upnpavchk $ perl -Ilib upnpavchk.pl > upnpavchk.out
The Win32 version, upnpavchk (WIN32 version), is available too. Please run the debugging tool using Windows console utility.
$ upnpavchk.exe > upnpavchk.out
