You need to first log into the ONT admin console by accessing the url: http://192.168.29.1/. The default username is "admin" and password "Jiocentrum", refer the user manual came along with the device.


Once logged in, go to Advanced :: DMS Server Settings. Change the friendly name from "Jio Media Server" to whatever name you want to be displayed, then enable the server. Save the settings and you are done.


Connect a HDD or Pen Drive to the USB port located at the back of the ONT device. Now you can see the device listed in your TV or Laptop connected to the same network. You can browse the content and stream photos, videos and music on your device through the media server!
