I have set up a My Book Duo on my Mac mini to try and use it as a Safepoint for my other My Book Live. It is connected via USB and I have File Sharing turned on to allow SMB and AFP sharing of the My Book Duo drive (and also a few other folders on my mac mini)
When I go into the My Book Live web interface and start to create the new Safepoint, it sees the Mac mini just fine. However, when I click on it to choose a location it immediately (prior to showing any folders) asks for Device Access username and password. No matter what I put in here it always gives a 35104 invalid username or password error.
I have tried everything I can think of on the Mac mini to make sure the username and password are valid.
- I’ve enabled Guest access of shared files, which I thought would mean no username/password but the web interface always asks for one and gives an error if I leave both fields blank. I also tried just putting in ‘Guest’ or ‘guest’ as the username and no password, which didn’t work.
- I’ve enabled the root user on the Mac mini and tried to log in with that user.
- I’ve made sure the File Share allows Read/Write by everyone, by my specific user, by admin groups, and then tried logging in with the credentials for my user.
- I even created a new user on the mac mini and gave that user full read/write to that folder
Am I missing something for what credentials it is asking for? Any help would be appreciated!
