Also my Android device is not like the one in the tut.

doesn't have to be the same and if you like and don't have a password active choose anonymous

1 step ES file explorer after that choose the plus sign for new server

it has to be set to LAN hit the tab in the left corner change to Lan after that the IP should appear i am using the same ES file explorer updated and it works

when you choose LAN you should be able to go into the network drive or c drive which ever one is set for back ups and movie streams

BTW this should work on all platforms im using ICS and Jellybean so it doesn't matter the pics in the tut were froyo or doughnut

Here is what I found, courtesy of another tutorial from the 'droid side of the fence, and I'd love a Windows 7 expert to explain to me the "why" because I don't understand the underlying permissions voodoo that occurs here.
My folders on several systems on the local net/ap were marked as shared - the usual stuff like my tech tools, vids, music, audiobooks and some miscellanei. in each case, hit the folder, properties, share homegroup. Homegroup isn't "sharing" in the older windows understanding. In my case, once I shared ONE folder with "Everyone", the whole system became available and all things marked as shared were immediately visible.
no issues anymore.
but I sure would like to know the "why"... some interaction between samba and the w7 permissions scheme?

Local would be the Android Drive and it's files and folders

Lan is the Computer and network you wnt to use

you will not see your Device in Homegroup but you will see it as a shared device

The FTP file transfer protocal would be the same as the LAN in this case because you are going to the direct source

Im sure you got a message about the SSFD and FTP those are necessary to bridge the system

I would think the program used the ES file expolorer is kinda like PC anywhere if you know the name and machine you want to link to in your area

For the folder interactions it has to be set to shared by you if you are trying to select individual folders that can be done by just a right click

I never ever shared the C drive you can also lock it down in homegroup and only give limited availability

The best thing to do is always use a backup drive as the decoy you never want the C drive to be put out there like that

i said nothing about the c: drive. in es all that shows are the folders that formerly were shared within the homegroup. in other words, I only marked ONE folder as promiscuous [Everyone].
