NEWBIE HERE - How to place a symbolic link on the appletv

I need to access my movies that i store on a remote drive. I don’t want to download them to the AppleTV. On my macbookpro I just create a symoblic link and that works fine. How do I do this on the Appletv? I guess before I do that, how do I get the appletv to mount the remote drive? Thank you.

I am having the same issue too - I tried to set up this up in the DVD/Network section but everytime I registered my iMac account details it returns to the apple logo doesn’t seem to establish a relationship to between ATV and my iMac! Any ideas???
