How to enable writing to the network drive (supported with V0.2.2.a above)
So depending on the version of Windows you are using it is slightly different. Windows 10 has the ability to set up your system as a mobile hotspot, then just connect the M3 straight to it and access folders shared under the Windows file transfer protocol.
If you're using Windows 7 then follow this guide to connect M3 to a system set up as a hotspot:
-Open the Manage Wireless Networks window
-Create an ad hoc network
-Enter a name and passphrase for the network
-Enable the “Allow other network users to connect through this computer’s Internet connection” if you want M3 to be able to use access the internet connection also.
Next goto command prompt (with admin privileges!)
Using netsh set up the network using the SSID (NAME) and passphrase you used to set up the adhoc network:
netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid="<NAME>" key="<passphrase>"
Then you need to broadcast the network by typing:
netsh wlan start hostednetwork
Then connect M3 to this network and you should be able to find any shared folders and access them directly using smb://IPADDRESS/folder. Host IP address is static using this method so path can be fixed into the networkSettings.yml
Hope that makes sense (and hopefully I got it right!) It works like a charm for us, after the scan has processed it drops it straight into a shared folder on our Windows system.
