Unable to access netword drive

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys


Similar problems to what I have had before where I cant access my NAS server via its static ip address.


The only way I can access it is to disable all components and then access the NAS copy what I want to onto or off it and then switch on the components again


Although straight forward enough its a pain to do and leaves me vulnerable when I have everything off.


Has there been anything done to the latest version?


Mines is fully up to date and running windows 10 as well too if that helps

Thanks for the reply


My network settings and machine / Internet security settings have not changed I have only been unable to access the NAS in the past week or so.


The only way to access it is to disable it all for a few mins and then switch it back on again

I don't think you mentioned in your last topic whether your network is configured as Public or Private. If it's configured as Public then that could be related to the issue.

Also, please let me know if restoring the factory default firewall rules makes any difference (even if your firewall rules haven't been changed). If you are using custom rules, then please feel free to create a backup of them so that you can restore them later.

Here's the instructions for restoring factory default firewall rules:

  • Open Emsisoft Internet Security.
  • Click on Settings in the menu at the top.
  • Click on the Factory defaults button near the upper-right.
  • Make sure that only the option labeled Global firewall rules is selected.
  • Click the OK button to apply the changes.

Fixed it the network was configured as public but this wasnt something i changed


Could it have been done via an update?

In Windows, was your network configured as a Home or Work network, or was it configured as a Public network? You can find the information in the Network and Sharing Center by right-clicking on the little networking icon in the System Tray (next to the clock and volume icon).

If the issue happens again, you can try turning off the option to "Use Windows settings for new connections" and setting the "Category for new connections" to Public. If that helps, then let us know, and we'll look into why that's happening.
