Is this a “feature” I am not aware of? If this is simply how the device works I’m not impressed. What am I doing wrong here? Do I really need a separate user account for each client device? If so, is that documented somewhere? It’s my network and I am the only user on it. I assumed I could use one user account for multiple client access.
2 clients - one is a MacBook Pro the other is a Windows Vista 64bit laptop.
1 user configured for WD My Cloud
I’m busy doing a large file transfer from my Mac client to the WD My Cloud Share A. I then go to my Vista machine, boot up, reconnect the network drive shares and start a file transfer from that client to the WD My Cloud Share B. When I reconnected the Windows shares I did notice an error message something about can’t have multiple connections with the same username.
I go back to my Mac and the file transfer that was halfway through has now been cancelled. There was an error something about permissions.
So, does each client device need a unique user account to be able to access the WD My Cloud simoultaneously?
