Firewall and SimpleShare Install RRS feed

  • Question


    When installling SimpleShare networked storage, the NAS Disk displays the address but when I try to link to the folder on the shared drive, I get a error 53, disable the firewall message.  I've done so but still get the message.  Is there a way to tell the Live Care firewall to accept the IP address? or????

  • I think you need to verify that the OneCare firewall is configured to see your network as "Home of Work." Open OneCare, click change settings, then configure network.

    There is no way to specify an IP address in the OneCare firewall. It is based on programs being allowed and ports and protocols.

    If the NAS is simply a network drive, and no software is installed on the PC, it should work as long as File and Printer sharing are enabled, which it will be if the network is "Home or Work."
