So I'm in the midst of attempting to make a FreeNAS server for home use to store photos and movies. I'm completely new to FreeNAS and any server software, and I literally have no clue what I'm doing.
I successfully installed it onto an old computer, and I'm in the process of setting everything up.
I'm looking for a basic server that anyone in the local network can access and put in files. What are the basic things that I need to set up? I already made a volume for my hard drive.
I did some research, and apparently I need to create shares so that they are accessible by other computers. I created one with SMB(all of my computers are running Windows), and turned it on. However, it does not show up in the "Network" section of Windows Explorer.
What am I missing?
