LinkStation Internet access
« on: October 26, 2008, 06:31:34 am »
   I've recently purchased a 500GB LinkSation Live and it's working fine apart from the fact I can't connect to it from the internet via BuffaloNAS.com.  I get to the stage where it asks me to enter my username/password which I do but it doesn't accept them and after three attempts a 401 forbidden web page comes up.  I've checked caps lock etc.  I've also fiddled around with my router with port forwarding 9000 but to no avail.  I'm connected to Virgin cable and the modem is then connected to a Belkin 54g router.  My house is Cat5 networked which the linkstation is connected to and thus to the router.  Does anyone have any advice for me on other things to try to get the internet access feature working?   Many thanks

   Problem solved this afternoon.  I hadn't actually set up a user for myself
