Cannot connect using WD 2go -- "TCP relay failed"

I have a brand new MBL Duo and am trying to set up WD 2go access for two laptops.  I have set up web access accounts for both and neither have been able to connect.

I am able to log in and see the “My WD Devices” screen.  I then click on MyBookLiveDuo and my browser shows “Connecting…” in the title bar.  This goes on for several minutes before I get Apache Tomcat error: “HTTP Status 404 - TCP relay failed - Socket connection retries exceeded”

Key details:

Windows Vista


Firefox 11.0

Please help!  Being able to connect from work is critical.  Thanks.

You may reset your MBLD by holding its reset button for 4 seconds.  In the Connection Status, from the Remote settings, verify that the connection status is “Connected”.  If is not connected you may try power cycling or resetting your router.

No luck after resetting the MyBook Live Duo, so I started fiddling around with my router.  Here are the things I did:

  • Logged into my router and checked that UPnP was enabled (It was.)
  • Clicked ‘Refresh’ and ‘Apply’ on the UPnP screen on the router without changing anything
  • Logged into the MBLD Dashboard and chose a “Manual” connection on Remote settings.  Made sure the ports were the same as those listed on my router’s UPnP screen.  Clicked Save.

After those actions, I finally got it to connect!  I’m no expert, so I have no idea what part fixed the issue, but I’m in.  I just had to update Java after that and now I can access the drives.

Many thanks.


I’ve got the same issue but when I go on my router, I do not see anything about UPnp???I still have the error 404 when I try to log wih on wd2go.
