Because I have this issue here Octoprint re-login needed very often
I was wondering if I could share the folder with the uploaded files.
Most of the time I use my laptop to upload files. I start prints with my tablet.
So for the uploading part I don't need the UI and if I could simple save the file to a shared folder it might be a better solution as before (before I ahd to relogin nearly everytime, of course this issue should also be solved, but that's another topic).
So I was wondering why there isn't already a samba plugin. Is there a certain reason for that. I prefer keeping everything in the UI and with that backing up everything (including the plugins).
So if I would install samba without a plugin I would have to back up samba up manually.
@foosel suggested this video.
But I wonder if there is already a more "embedded" solution for this.
If not you @foosel wrote somewhere that the upload folder should only be maintained by octoprint itself. This looks like you wouldn't recommend using a shared folder at all.
Would like to hear your opinion on that and if you yourself use octoprint & samba.
Of course everyone else is also invited to post his/hers opinion.
