I have an Iomega Networked External Harddrive that fits via an ethernet directly into my Router. A discovery manager software then maps the drives for use when the firewall is off.
When the firewall is on - no connection and the discovery manager cannot see the drive.
On further investigation i allowed the mac address of the hardrive full access via the firewall. The discovery manager can see the harddrive - the name of it appears - but still cannot connect unless disabled.
Are there any settings i may have missed to allow access?
-i had AVG firewall installed previously but it would never connect. Now i disabled it and am using Comodo firewall.
Hi, there. I have just solved this issue. I have 3 PCs with XP and a Vista notebook, I tried to change the firewall and Defense+ on the main PC after I did some research online, but with no luck. I finally saw the Iomega access window last night after I changed somef settings. then I tried another 2 PCs, now I got little experience. Here is my tips:
make IOMEGA DISCOVERY.EXE and IOMEGA STORAGE MANAGER.EXE as TRUSTED APPLICATION
In Attack Detction Settings window, under Miscellaneous tab, click Block Fragmented IP datagrams and Do protocol analysis. (I think the 2nd one made it working).
the 2 screen shots you asked, I can show you, but I made lots of useless change there. I have gotten approved on the 3rd PC without COMODO at beginning then installed COMODO, and just do the 2 steps above, it works beautifully.
