I've bought an R215 but I have a question regarding accessing the data on the microSD card from an iPad.

I can use the web interface/app that is provided to get to the files, but rather than streaming from the R215 to the iPad I would like to be able to transfer the "file" from the R215 to the iPad.  This will also get me around the format compatibility issues.

With the iPad at home I can do this quite successfully and easily using FileExplorer connected to the NAS or PC - navigate to the folder and copy the file from the server to the iPad and then use FileExplorer again to play the file.

So the question is whether there is a network layer access to the data that will give me that, such as FTP or drive mapping? 

If so, what do I need to connect; IP address, username/password, type etc.  FileExplorer has a number of connection options but none appear to work.

Many thanks in advance

Having a look through the guides on the Vodafone website it seems that device only offers sharing over HTTP or USB sadly. Some apps on iPad let you download the file and store it rather than open it however.

Peppery: Having a look through the guides on the Vodafone website it seems that device only offers sharing over HTTP or USB sadly. Some apps on iPad let you download the file and store it rather than open it however.

Thanks Peppery.  The problem is I can't find an exposed port/IP address to access the data directly - other than using the web interface. 

On the webpage from the unit there is a button that says download.  On a PC you click it and you get the option to download etc - on the iPad it automatically tries to open the file only which is fine if it is a file that the iPad recognises - but then I have to keep the Wi-Fi connection running and streaming which uses valuable battery life.

Ideally I would use something like the file explorer app to access the data and download what I need - but I can't find a way to access the data directly.
