6384LinkStations Can't Find Each Other
- Mar 21, 2008I have an older Gigabit LinkStation (HGLAN) and recently got a new
LinkStation Live (HS-DHGL226). I intend to use the LinkStation Live as
my primary NAS and install a larger drive in the HGLAN and use it to
backup the DHGL.
My problem is that I have been unable to get either of the
LinkStations to find the other on my network so I am unable to set up
any backups between them.
Both have the latest OE firmware (1.61 and 2.02). Both are attached to
the same 3COM Gigabit switch and have gigabit connections. The switch
is connected to a LinkSys RTP300 router / VOIP adapter. Both are on
the same subnet. Both have DHCP disabled and have manually configured
IP addresses. (Though I have also tried DHCP with no better results.)
Both have shares that are configured for backup.
I can find both LinkStations from my PCs with NAS Navigator. But
neither NAS will show up in the other's LinkStation list or as
available as a backup drive. Adding the IPs to the list manually does
not work either!
Please help. What I am missing? This is driving me crazy.
