Universal Plug and Play (UPnP)

UPnP is a set of protocols to share media on the network. It is also supported by a wide range of Wi-Fi access points.


You also need a UPnP-client, which can be installed using sudo apt-get install djmount. UPnP discovery can be started using

djmount mountpoint

After that you can use it like a local folder and add it to your local collection.


On Debian-based distributions like Ubuntu you can install a UPnP-server using

sudo apt-get install ushare

The service is started in the terminal with the command

ushare -n servername [-i interface] [-c folder]

You can also manage shares using the webinterface, which you can access by opening in the browser. port needs to be adjusted to your settings.
