Accidently told LMCE to ignore my usb hdd
« on: April 11, 2008, 05:46:21 am »
Hi, I live in a dorm, so there are about 300 people on my local area network right now.  So, when I install LMCE, I have to tell it to ignore everyone's computer.  Problem is, I got so robotic in my denies, that I told it to ignore my usb hard drive with some media on it.  So, how do I get it to use that usb hard drive?

you should be able to to this via the webadmin...

-login to the webadmin

- using TOP navigation, goto advanced -dropdown list--->configration --drop down list----> unknown devices.

-this is the fun part. figure out which device is your usb HD and click 'unlock'. that should do it.

-someone correct me if im wrong here, but a clue to finding which one is your USB HD in the sea of devices is the one without a network address. that a guess tho, but hopefully it helps you narrow it down.
