Samba Share functionality
Not sure if this is the right place but its the best fit I hope.....
Computer A (gigabit wired): NAS running Ubuntu Server
Computer B (wifi): Rasberry Pi as a Audio Source running RuneAudio (Arch Linux I believe)
Computer C (wifi): Laptop running Mint
As my NAS and the Pi are both headless I use my laptop to access both directories (shared over SMB) and make the move. My question is, does each file have to move from the NAS to Computer C to the Pi or will it go straight from the NAS to the Pi?
The reason I am asking is the Pi and Computer C are both on Wifi and it will likely take forever when I want to add a new album to the Pis music library. If the file has to pass through both wifi connections on the way to the Pi its likely to come to a crawl. '); }
