I just installed a new MyCloud NAS in our university laboratory. There are 3 PCs in our lab, all of them (and the NAS) connected to the university network (in ethernet sockets on the wall, not on a router). In order to better explain you the situation, let me name the 3 PCs.
PC1 --> Windows 7 laptop (NAS admin)
PC2 --> Windows XP desktop
PC3 --> Windows 7 desktop
(the IPs are not static)
In the NAS I have created a folder (let’s call it Lab) and all three users have full rights in this folder. All users have a password in order to get access. I want the 3 PCs to have access to the NAS easily, without having to map through wd2go everytime. So I followed the instructions (from the Help section of the Dashboard) and created a shortcut pointing to \MyCloud on the desktop in all three PCs. Everything works just fine with PC1 and PC2. I open the drive via the shortcut, I click the lab folder, I put the username and password and everything goes as it should. However, something’s wrong with PC3.
After clicking the shortcut and while the window opens, it asks for credentials (it does not display NAS folders before putting username and password - strange thing no 1). After putting the credentials, I can now see the NAS folders. I click the Lab folder and again I am asked for username and password. However, this time access is denied (strange thing no 2) and Windows keep asking me for the credentials again and again. Mapping the drive via wd2go works fine, but it is not an easy thing to do every time. Any idea??
As I described above, I have set passwords for all users. In order to access the Dashboard, you also need a password. Is there anything else I should do in terms of safety (since I don’t want the whole university to have access to our files).
Thank you in advance
