I am new and not very knowledgeable regarding servers etc... I have been using my 211J with my previous mac and macbook pro without any issues. I am able to connect via the internet (from "outside") etc. However, with my new IMAC (others were stolen from us..) I cannot connect to my synology "locally" via finder. I am running the latest DSM version (3.1-1748) and using mac os X (10.6.
. I am using an airport extreme which is connected to my cable modem to provide a wireless access for the IMAC. The synology is connected via lan cable to the airport extreme.
the problem is, in finder IF it sees the synology it cannot connect. It takes a long time for it to try to connect and then i get a message which states that either the IP is wrong or server is not available. In finder all is selected regarding "showing servers etc".
please help me?! this is driving me nuts! and I am sure it is a scilly setting i did not set. Oh I have the win and mac sharing service enabled.
