Yes, I did both. Print/file share is enabled according to Network Sharing page.
I have AVG (paid version) and it’s enabled there as well. Bonjour Services is an allowed app. I also added the WDMyCloud IP address to the AVG white list. I’ve also disabled AVG firewall through this whole thing with no success.
The ONLY thing I can imagine is that AVG is preventing access to the share … because when I disable the AVG firewall and refresh my network, I will SEE \WDMYCLOUD show up as a share! The bad news is that I still can’t connect. I just can’t seem to prove my theory, short of uninstalling AVG completely in the hopes that this will work.
AVG by defautl blocks these services. Probably you did this already AVG Control Center->AVG Firewall->Configure->System tab->" Microsoftfile sharing and printing
I have AVG as well, althogu I dont use Wiondow much, here what I used to
* Open AVG User Interface.
* Choose the Firewall settings option from the Tools menu.
* Select Profiles → your default profile (e.g. Standalone computer ) → System services.
* Choose the Microsoft file sharing and printing service.
* Switch the System rule details from Block to Allow for all.
* Confirm changes by clicking on the OK button.
In the ‘AVG Internet Security’ screen shot on the first page, you highlighted ‘System Services’. But I notice that, above that in the menu, there’s a ‘File and Printer Sharing’ menu item. What options are available under that?
Excuse the daft questions: I don’t run AVG, and haven’t had network connection problems. I’ve looked through my system notes, and the only time I’ve had to set file and printer sharing was to enable devices on my local network so see my PC’s disk. The MC and PC are set to the same workgroup.
