Best settings for only local use

Hi. I have had my NAS drive for a few months now.

I leave it on constantly, and allow it to go in to standby when not in use, but sometimes I can hear it spinning up when no one in the house is trying to access it.

This made me start worrying about remote access, but I don’t have much knowledge about how to set it to only local.

What settings should I put, so that only the computers/bluray players etc on my network can access it?



Just making sure that the MBW has the same WORKGROUP name as your other local devices should be enough! Of course, just make sure there is IP conflicts anywhere.
