    Hi. I've googled but cannot find an answer.

    My iMac and minix are in the same wireless network. I also have a dune media player on the network which is easily accessed by my iMac.

    The iMac can see the Dune under 'shared' devices in Finder and the Minix can connect to the Dune under Workgroup and play files from it.

    I want the minix to stream files from my iMac hdd. I can access the iMac hdd from the minix from ES Explorer using Sftp. I can access each of its folders.

    However when I try to add a source in Xbmc I cannot seem to connect to the iMac.

    Does anyone have a way of doing this that works ?

    I'm amazed that in 2015 I can still spend hours of my life trying to get 2 pieces of kit to talk to each other !
