    I did search the forums for this, but couldn't find anything helpful. Maybe I'm not using the right terminology..

    I have a rooted DX and I want to be able to connect to a share on my home network with Root Explorer. I can do this using the stock "Files" application by going to Shared Folders --> Add Server. I cannot for the life of me figure out how to do it with Root Explorer.

    The device I want to connect to (ReadyNAS Duo) supports CIFS and NFS, and I don't care which one of those I use if that helps.

    Any ideas?

    I don't know if you can with root explorer because I think it is designed for system access, but you can with Astro and the Astro SMB module.

    Dang, I already uninstalled Astro for a refund because I liked RE better.

    Thanks for the response. ;)

    Isn't astro free? I don't remember paying for it. lol You don't need the pay version to install the smb module. :D
