And then, select the SSID you want to connect. You have to use the same AP as your HOST-PC.

You are going to need the IP address when you use SAMBA on your HOST-PC.

You can deactivate or activate the connections whenever you want.
The “right triangle arrow” means activated connection. Select the activated SSID and then, you can deactivate or delete the connection.
If you deactivate the connection, you can reactivate the connection without inputting a password later.

To use SAMBA interface, you should know the IP address of your ODROID-GO-Advance.
There are many utils to find it. We're going to use “nmap”.
Install the “nmap” with this commands.

sudo apt update
sudo apt install nmap

Check your IP address. And then, search IP addresses in the same network.

odroid@odroid:~$ ip addr
1: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 65536 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN group default qlen 1000
    link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00
    inet scope host lo
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
    inet6 ::1/128 scope host 
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
3: wlx7cdd908e1219: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc mq state UP group default qlen 1000
    link/ether 73:sd:30:2e:13:12 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
    inet brd scope global dynamic noprefixroute wlx7cdd908e1219
       valid_lft 5789sec preferred_lft 5789sec

In my case, the “” is my ODROID-GO-Advance's IP address.

odroid@odroid:~$ nmap -sP 192.168.30.*
Starting Nmap 7.70 ( https://nmap.org ) at 2020-01-29 14:00 KST

If you can not find the IP address on your HOST-PC, delete the added WiFi connection and then, add WiFi connection again on your ODROID-GO-Advance

Open file maneger. And select the “Other Locations” and then input the IP address of your ODROID-GO-Advance as following below.

Enter the “roms” folder.

Input your username and password of ODROID-GO-Advance.
