Need android to access Windows share via html links
Posted on 2014-08-19
We currently have pdfs stored on a Windows share, and an intranet which provide a url to each file. You can go to the site, search by part number, and get a list of all related files. Click a link and it opens the pdf. All desktops are Windows 7 and work fine.
Now I need to get this working on an Android tablet. Chrome doesn't seem to recognize file:// urls to smb shares. Nor does it allow the installation of add-ons to provide this functionality. If I could automount the smb share this could work, but it seems you must root the device to do so.
Everything I've looked into hits a dead end. Does anyone know of a method to get a browser on android to access pdfs on a windows share?
