I have sources on multiple servers in my local network.

My media folders are listed like this:

\\192.168.0.100\disk-0\music\pop

\\192.168.0.100\disk-1\music\Christmas

\\192.168.0.102\disk-0\music\rock

If that isn't working, it would be nice to figure out why.

What are you entering as a path for the folder?

If you enter that into the top bar of a file explorer window, does it open the directory? If not, then it's the wrong path format, or an incorrect path.

If I paste "\\192.168.0.100\disk-0\music\pop" (my music directory) into the top bar of a file explorer window, my music directory open in the file explorer window.

Please test, and paste your results here, preferably with screen shots.

Is your Madsonic server Windows or Linux? And what is the other server running?

The process is different for different combinations. I have 2 Madsonic servers (5.x and 6.x). 6.x on Windows is a little different process to access the media on my Linux server (Which is running Madsonic 5.x).

If both servers are Linux, you need to edit the /etc/fstab file to mount the path on server2 to a folder on server1, and then use the media folder settings to point to that folder.

If Madsonic server is Windows, and other server is Linux, you have to create a user account on the Linux server will full rights to the root of the media folder, then go into "Services" on Windows to force Madsonic to run as that username.

If Madsonic is on Linux, and other server is Windows, you will need to set up Samba on the Linux server so it can talk to the Windows server, and then mount a Samba share under Linux.

If both are Windows, add the "Everyone" group to have full access to your media folders. (May also need to add "LocalService" - not sure on this.)

you can't use FTP to share a file path. FTP is for downloading files, not streaming.

You would need to first mount the FTP location to a point on your linux server by editing your /etc/fstab file, then use the mount location to point Madsonic to your files.
