Can not access to NAS from windows 7
I just bought and setup the Patriot Valkyrie NAS as the following:
- Raid 1 1.5 TB storage
- Format as Ext2
- Name of the NAS = MYNAS
- Create an account homeuser with "no password required"
- Create an account master with a password "root"
- Create a folder "homedata" with "read/write access to all user"
- Create a folder "workdata" with "set access for individuals users" and set it to master with read/write access
When I browse the MYNAS, i can see the following folder
- admin, public, homedata, workdata
I can click to "public" folder, create,copy,read,write,update all ok.
When I click on "homedata", a prompt for user account show up, I try to login using homeuser account (E.g. MYNAS\homeuser) and leave the password empty but an access denied message show up.
I also try to login wth MYNAS\master with password = "root" and same "access denied" message show up.
Does anyone face the same problem and have a solution for it?
I running windows 7 - 64 bit mainly, but I also test it on windows xp and windows 7 - 32 bit as well and the result is the same.
I also note that there is a public folder and I would like to know how to turn off? or set quota limit?
I use it under Windows 7 64bit... I have found that every once in a while if you reboot windoiws too often (?) it seems to get confused about the NAS...
So I just shut down both the NAS and the PC and restart them both...
Also, Windows 7 gets right snarky if time and date on shared stuff is not almost the same on all devices...
Hope that helps.... At least I can tell you that it will work fine under windows 7 32/64 both... I've probably had 6 different machines hooked up to mine in the last week.... no problems...
I have not gotten 'read/write access to all user' to work correctly.

Then I shutdown my NAS to re-location the device. After turn on the NAS, I try to re-access those share drive (I have mapped them) and then the message Access denied come up again. I then try on those account that has no password but still no-luck.
I create new user account, and use this new account to log to the NAS, walla, it is OK (no reboot).
Then I re-boot the NAS (and not re-boot my windows), then arrrrgg, the login fail again with access denied or login failure.
At this stage, I am still not sure what cause the problem yet (sometime work and sometime don't).
- I delete the user account that I create from previous test, then create new user account again with the same username and password, wallah it worked again.
- OK, then I try to edit a user account (the once that not work) and re-type in the same username and password. Click update. Then try access, crap not work at all, still access denied.
- OK, now, I delete the user account in the NAS. Re-create with same username and password. Then walla it is working again.
It is seemed that, if I re-boot the NAS, then I have to re-create (by delete and create) all the users account again and this including those account that not required password.
My thinking: the NAS changed the seed for the password HASH key everytime the NAS reboot. However, the FTP is ok. This is may be the windows 7 itself, HASH the password before it is sending to the NAS where FTP is sending the password to NAS and the NAS HASH the password itself.
Now, what I want to know is how to force the windows 7 sending the password to NAS without Hash?
