I’m pretty new to all this Nas stuff, so this issue might sound silly or even stupid to some of you.
I have my WD Nas for a few weeks now, and I only use it from my iMac or MacBook.
When I create a directory on the Nas when I’m behind my iMac, that same directory is, obviously, also available when I’m behind my MacBook, but I can’t put files into it when I’m behind my MacBook.
On both computer I use the same credentials to access the Nas. I used to have different users set up for the Nas, but I got rid of that (one user for the iMac, and one for the MacBook) because it made no sense after all. I am the only person accessing the Nas, so what’s the point of using different users…?
But still, I cannot put files in the directory I created via my iMac when I’m behind my MacBook.
This MacBook is my company’s MacBook, so I have a different login compared to my iMac which is mine.
Could that make any difference to the scenario?
I must say I get a bit annoyed about this because the only way to get around the issue is to copy my files from the MacBook to the iMac, and then I can copy (from the iMac) to the desired direcory on my Nas. It seems as if the user on the iMac has all privileges and on the MacBook it is limited, but I use the same user credentials on both my MacBook and the iMac.
So does anyone have a clue or answer to this issue.
