I have a somewhat atypical configuration. My LinuxMCE router is not the center of the network and it has only one network card. I have a large linux box (with a 1.5TB RAID5) that acts as my gateway/router/file/print/internet server. I initially configured MCE to get an IP address using DHCP. This worked fine, until other computers connecting to my network started to get an IP address from LinuxMCE, instead of from my linux server.
So last nitght I went on the web interface Homepage -> Advanced -> Network -> Network Settings and turned of the DHCP server (http://download.erasmix.net/mce/Screenshot-1.png
). After I rebooted, none of my WINDOWS shares (I had to mount my linux server directories as SAMBA, since NFS didn't seem to work) showes up. They still exist as devices (http://download.erasmix.net/mce/Screenshot-2.png
), but LinuxMCE doesn't show my videos/pictures stored on those devices.
Then I went back and enabled the DHCP server and put back the IP addresses ranges for Pluto and non-Pluto devices. Same result. I cannot see any of my files.
I'm about to wipe my install using RC1, but since I spent quite a bit of time setting up my video and photo devices, I even got the screensaver to show my own photos rather than flicker, if there is a way I can fix it to avoid redoing all the work.
I'd also like to know if I can have Linux MCE not to interfere with my DHCP server with just one network card. I dont plan to connect any devices to the network that the dcerouter needs to be aware of.
Sorry for the lengthy message.
