hi everyone, i recently installed a Fantom NAS drive in my office with 3 pcs and 1 laptop. the prob is that the pcs can only access the NAS drive when the norton and windows firewall are both disabled. how can i use the drive and keep my pc protected at the same time? also any suggestions for network and office pc security?
thanks

You have to edit your firewall settings to allow the IP address of the NAS. Once you do that you should be able to see the NAS from the PC's.
