NAS Timeout

by xxhardingm » Thu Apr 02, 2015 11:57 pm

Hi all

I've recently connected a small Seagate NAS that is not domain aware. I've installed the latest version of Backup Assist and started working through the backup setup wizard. I can successfully connect to the NAS ok through explorer using the NAS username and password, however when testing the connection through BackupAssist i keep getting connection timeout.

I've tried every variation of username password i.e username, ipaddress\username, also tried with no username all to no avail

I can browse to the UNC using BackupAsisst so it's definitely visible

Any help greatly appreciated
