Droid NAS – SMB file server for Android

Droid NAS allows you to share folders over Wi-Fi network, making your Android device visible as Bonjour computer in Finder on your Mac. Turn your phone or tablet into wireless flash drive with a single tap!

Different profiles can be used to quickly choose which folders to share. Assign your home or office Wi-Fi networks to profiles and Droid NAS will auto-select profiles on start.

Supported systems:

  • Mac OS X.
  • Android: apps like ES File Explorer, Solid Explorer, GTVBox Video Player.
  • Windows doesn’t supported because it can’t connect to SMB servers via non-standard port.
  • Linux most probably also won’t work.

Workaround for OS X Mavericks:

Press Cmd+K in Finder and enter IP address AND share:

smb://IP_ADDRESS:Port/Share

for example:

smb://192.168.1.2:7777/SD Card

    Thanks for the info. I think the wi-fi file sharing to Android is much faster than USB file transfers.

    WTF, why does it have to run on a non-standard port?

      Ports < 1024 are not allowed for user apps on Android.

    Its a good application, but i think since SMB protocol uses low ports and to have less impact over some users, a "Root Mode" support is desirable, opening SMB server in the official port.

      Please try this solution and let me know if it works: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/10731952/andro

      "I ran this command as root:

      iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p tcp –dport 80 -j REDIRECT –to-port 8080"

    Why can I not share ANY folder on the Droid? I have an SATA drive on an Android TV Box I need to share and your app can't see anything but the SD Card.

      You can, just tap and hold on the list and add a new folder.

    How do I get to connect? When the phone icon appears on the finder page on the Mac I am prompted to connect either as a guest or a registered user with a password. Neither work and where would I find the password..?????
