Hello Panic,

Ok. Maybe I should know but what is 'JBOD'?
And you run with Comodo Firewall v2 or v3?

Regards,
Henk.

JBOD = Just a Bunch Of Disks - not mirrored, not spanned, just crammed into the enclosure and set up as separate volumes.

I'm running CFP V3.

Hope this info helps,
Ewen :-)

Hello,
I have given up. Whatever I tried to change in settings, it simply does not prevent loosing the mirror functionality. So I have uninstalled the Comodo firewall. Since then, I also do not have to re-install the rights for various users anymore on the drives on that Netgear as I needed to do that over and over again each time I booted my computer with Comodo firewall. So after trying some 5 different brand firewalls, the one of AVG was the only one that did not give me this trouble.

All that replied thank you for your support.
Regards,
Henk

Sorry that didn't work out for you.

I checked with a mate at Netgear and he confirmed that allowing fragmented packets should allow the SC101 to talk to and through CFP. He did also suggest turning off protocol analysis for a double check.

The above two steps are also requred for Apple's NAS device.

A bit late but...
quick comment for other toaster users (SC101)
New install of latest free version of "Comodo internet security" (3.5.5713.439), killed of the Netgear disks, but when firewall was disabled they came back .. i.e. it was Firewall not Defense+.. so after reading this thread,
I got mine going by
1: making Z-SANSERVICE.EXE a trusted application,
2: Creating a network zone "local" with ip range: (my local network) 192.168.1.1 - 192.168.1.255.
3: Running stealth ports wizard and selecting the new "local" zone I had just created.
4: Adding 20001 to the HTTP port set.
5: under Advanced -> "Attack Detection Settings" -> Miscellanious I un-ticked "Block Fragmented IP datagrams".
Each time I re-enabled the firewall as "Training" mode
i.e. the all same fixes as proposed in this thread, without all the safe mode uninstall / clean / reinstall.
I did the above in sequence, I have not removed any of the setting since, so I cannot say if all or only some of the settings are required, only that at each step I re-enabled the firewall, and each time the SC101 disk vanished, until point 5!
After point 5 I set the firewall as "Safe" mode and all is fine! :-)
thanks for a great product Comodo!
