Enabling DLNA Media Server

You can configure your NAS as a DLNA server, allowing you to access media files on your NAS through your home network using DLNA devices such as TVs, smartphones, and computers.

The contents displayed in DLNA Media Server are based on user account permissions and Multimedia Console settings.
