Description of Issue

I would like to connect my Nucleus + to either Drobo, but cannot. I have tried to using my limited knowledge of network settings. I am able to find the ip addresses of the equipment, but I cannot seem to come up with the correct entries to use in the Nucleus setup.

Any tips?

Hi @Mr_Todah,

Thank you for patiently awaitng a response from Roon support.

It looks like @Martin_Webster found a great precedent to help with your issue. Did it? Is there anything I can do to assist?

Please let us know and thank you.


Thank you. I was able to get it to connect by using the name of the Drobo, not the iP address in the smb path.
