I'm a newb with my QNAP NAS, but after 4 days I've read the entire 695 page manual up-side down. I've been running into a re-current issue with my QNAP and I'm not the only one; I discovered what was happening by running into someone else's frustration thread online after a lot of looking around but there was never a posted solution (Thanks buddy)... Therefore, I'm hoping to get to the bottom of this and post it so everyone else as frustrated as I was can find this solution and start buying me beer
Running Windows 7, I go to log into the fixed IP of the NAS and it doesn't load. The QNAP Finder can't find the QNAP NAS either. I can ping the address with a response when in CMD-Prompt (Start -> Search: Type "CMD" -> Type: "Ping <NAS IP>" -> Enter -> Read). I've tried Restarting my Connection, Computer, QNAP, Cup of Coffee, all with no effect.
When I access the NAS IP from a second computer it works. I go into the Security Settings (System Administration -> Security) and I find my computer's IP in the blocked list. I remove the IP, but only for my main computer to break the security violations and get back on the list.
My Security Settings are:
> Security Level
>>Security Level: Low
>Network Access Protection
>> SSH, Telnet, HTTP, FTP, SAMBA, AFP : In 5 MINUTES, After 5 TIMES, Block for 1 DAY
The methods that my computer is accessing the QNAP are:
(1) Mapped FTP in Windows Explorer - Set to re-connect upon start-up
(2) NetDrive Program creating a Mapped Drive - Set to re-connect upon start-up
(3) NetBak Replicator
(4) HTTP via web-browser (Chrome & IE)
I will eliminate these one by one and keep myself updated on here as to what I tried until success is stumbled upon
Attempt #1 -> Remove NetBak Replicator Program & Restart
