LS220 WebAccess name invalid?
« on: November 25, 2020, 02:36:09 pm »
Today when I attempted to access my LS220 on my local network, I am unable to Browse Share from the NAS Navigator2 interface.  When I try to use the WebAccess link in a browser I am told that the name is invalid.

I am able to select Open Settings from the NAS Navigator2 interface, and look at WebAccess settings via the web page that opens. I can click Cancel to go back to the main menu.  If I click OK, or try to edit the settings, I get an error: Verify that DNS settings are correct.

This last bit worries me.  I have not made any DNS changes.  If it doesn't like what is already there, I don't know where my problem is.

Can anyone point me in a likely direction to get either get the existing WebAcess share name recognized, or get a new one registered?

Thanks,
Tom

Thanks for getting back to me so quickly.

"Which led status do you have?

"Reboot the nas with the on-off switsch

Two green LEDs.  The top one blinks occasionally.

I restarted using the power switch.  No change to by situation.
  • Cannot Browse Share
  • Can Open Settings
  • At (IP addr.)/root.html, WebAccess shows On, but Status=not running
  • Under WebAccess advanced settings, if I click OK on current settings, I get a "Verify that DNS settings are correct." error pop-up
  • http://buffalonas.com/index.php still shows my NAS name as invalid
Thanks,
Tom

this leds can not be green

white is normal
red gives you the errorcode

read the manual Chapter11

Sorry. I was looking at the LEDs on the back, near the power switch.

On the front front, a single LED shows solid white.  When I cycle the power using the switch, the LED rapidly flashes white for almost almost two minutes, then settles on solid white.

The only other color that showed was a very brief flash before the rapid white flashing.  It was so brief that I couldn't really say if it was amber or red. Probably red.

Thanks for including the manual.  I will do some reading.  I didn't see any of the flashing patterns documented in chapter 11 that corresponded to error conditions.

I appreciate your help and speedy replies.

Tom

Only the upper LED was showing, so it seems my Function LED is telling me I have a function problem.  Based on Chapter 8, it sounds like time to initialize my LinkStation.

I initialized from the Restore/Erase menu, then re-configured using the old settings.

I am now able to access my public and private shares via the web interface again.

Thanks for your help!
