I got my 2tb MyBookLive yesterday. I managed to get it backing bup all my files ok then started to look at http://mybooklive.local (this is the dashboard right?) to look at setting up the remote access.
I couldnt enable it, so i googled it, this took me through a journey of trying static/dhcp/port forwarding none of which worked some suggested i make sure im running the latest firmware.
The threads here regarding firmware i found really confusing but it seemed to me that manal updating was disabled to make sure nobody put bad firmware on as there are issues. I was under tyhe impression as long as i used the ‘check for updates’ method id get the right firmware.
I believe I was using 052, i tried check for updates several times and was told im already using the latest firmware, then it found new firmware for me to use, a few times it downloaded and then errored before installing but eventually i got it updated.
im now using 046 my drive shows as locked in Smartware although i never set any username and password i tried blank fields clicked ok and nothing happens, weird thing is even if i put text in the fields and click ok it still doesnt seem to try and authenticate.
I still cant enable remote access.
Clicking utilities displays please wait and hangs there.
Does anyone have any good news for me?
