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, such as djmount, which can be installed using:

sudo apt-get install djmount

UPnP discovery can then 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 web interface, which you can access by opening in the browser, where port depends on your settings.
