    Any way to access/use your local LAN folders?

    the title of the thread is enough, i cant seem to find a way to see lan or any option referring to lan and access to workgroup etc...

    i was hoping by typing //local-ip on the browser to see the shared folders of that pc but.. no chance.

    there are programs where y ou can ping out active local ips but just that.

    Check out "ES File Explorer".

    I use this app to access my home server and also my nas, its a nice little app!

    Thanks for the headsup on this program. So far I haven't had any luck getting it to recognize my main box at home, a network drive, or my FTP Server - but I'll keep poking around and trying. If I can get this to work it will be a HUGE help.

    Thanks dlittlewood. This app gives me the freedom to upload site updates to my remote server while away from my desk. I was hoping to find something like this.

    I'm not sure it streams, but it does a good job on file copy. The latest update supports file transfer over bluetooth as well.
