I have a TP-LINK MFP and Storage Server TL-PS310U. I would like to use it to connect a printer to the local network.
I do not have Windows here (I have Linux Mint 13 on both computers), so I can not install the software of the producer. I thought it could be used also without the software. Maybe I am wrong here.
The device is connected to the router. I can see the IP address of the device (192.168.1.100). I can ping it. I can open the web management of the device (
I have plugged a USB flash drive in the device. I can see the name of the flash drive in the web management page as connected.
But I have no idea how I could access the files on flash drive. I have tried to connect via Samba (
smb://192.168.1.100/) or FTP (
ftp://192.168.1.100/) but it does not work.
It is possible to connect up to four USB devices to the device. So I guess there should be separate IP address assigned to each of the USB devices. It seems that I am missing the IP address assigned by the print server to the USB flash drive.
Do you have any idea how I could access the flash drive (or printer) via this device?
