I see now where you select SYSTEM and that's what I have set as default in the viewer. Under Access in the File Transfer display. Changing that to CURRENT USER immediately makes the mapped drive available in the HOST window. Changing back to SYSTEM removes the mapped drive.
So great, it works but I'm still none the wiser as to why this works in the way it does. If it's been explained in the documentation, then I must have missed it. Please can someone post a link.
Answer to your questions: 1. Yes, me the Admin on both computers, same username on both, logged in to PC'sthrough Windows with the same credentials.
2. No. I just run the viewer as a normal program. All others that require drive access locally can see mapped drives on both PC's In file transfer window for the Viewer I can see the Mapped Drive but for the host I cannot and get the error message when attempted.
I will try running the viewer program as an Admin.
Please tell me how you switched it to system? I could not find this as an option in either the Viewer or Host settings.
I have one pc with the host settings set to display the connections in a box on the bottom RH corner. Whilst this is great and it displays the machine type connected and its IP address. It would be good if instead of the machine type it used the machine name.
For example, when I connect to the host with my laptop, it displays "Laptop" and with my iPad it displays "iPad". If it displayed the name given in the settings like the Username or the machine name like "Chas's iPad" this would help in identifying the user.
Is it possible to set this display either in the Host settings or in the iOS version?
If this sounds more like a feature request, please move it to the appropriate board.
