It is supported for BE10 ? please if so, send me configuration guide with BE.

Thanks

...the installation guides should be on the respective websites.

They would need to emulate a drive that BE 10x supports...not LTO5 for instance or it won't work.

Thanks!

I'm sorry i'm just noob, i don't understand can you explain in more details or simple please ?

No worries, but I assume your media server is running Windows 200x, so check the link below on how to install the Firestreamer VTL.

I tested this software, it's not supported with BE10 

would you please provide me another one ?

...you might have to Google one yourself to be honest, but BE 10x is many versions behind, and I suspect you're going to struggle to find 1 that will be supported, even for testing purposes.

Best bet would be to find a server that can run BE 2012/2010 R3 and install 1 of these versions on that. THEN try 1 of those links as they should work with the later versions.

Thanks!
