Network
The Network screen provides tools to configure IP and workgroup settings.

Network Address Configuration

IP AddressingSelect the method the Home Media Drive will use to obtain an IP address.

Automatic (DHCP)Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol. The Home Media Drive will obtain its
IP settings from the DHCP server on the local network. By default, the Home Media Drive is
configured to use DHCP.

ManualIf your network does not have a DHCP server, you must set a static IP address for your
Home Media Drive to function properly. The following settings apply to Manual only:

IP AddressEnter an IP address for your Home Media Drive. The IP address of each device
in the local area network must be within the same IP address range and subnet mask. For a
small subnet with less than 253 IP addresses assigned (e.g. Class C private IP), each device
in the LAN (Local Area Network) needs to have a unique IP Address in the format of
169.254.x.x to connect to other devices within the same network.

Subnet MaskSpecify the subnet mask for the Home Media Drive. The Subnet mask must be
the same for all devices on the same subnet of the network. The default subnet setting is
255.255.0.0. Keep this default setting if your LAN has an IP address range in the format of
169.254.x.x.

DNS Server 1Domain Name System. DNS translates IP addresses into more easily
understandable names such as MyComputer.MyCompany.com. Enter the IP address of one
or more DNS servers. This setting is usually provided by your Internet Service Provider.

DNS Server 2Enter an alternate DNS server. This setting is usually provided by your
Internet Service Provider. (Optional)

GatewayIf your network has a router or gateway, enter its address here.

DomainInternet Search Domain. Enter the internet search domain for your ISP account.
This is usually in the form of mycompany.com.

Workgroup Name

file://D:\ENGLISH\HTML Manual\printall.html 9/12/2009


Page 22 of 75

NameEnter the name of the workgroup you wish to join. If the workgroup you entered does
not exist, it will be created once you apply your changes. By default the Home Media Drive is
configured to join a workgroup named WORKGROUP. A properly configured workgroup name
has the following characteristics:

Must be a unique name. The workgroup name cannot match the computer name of any
other network device.
Must NOT exceed 15 characters.
Cannot include, spaces or special characters (such as " / \ [ ] : ; | & = , + * ? < >).

Connecting to Home Media Drive Shared Folders is as easy as installing the Home Storage Manager
software. Once the software is installed you will instantly be connected to all of the shared
folders to which you have access. By default the Home Media Drive shared folders are unsecured.
If your Home Media Drive has secure shared folders, the administrator will need to log in to the
Home Storage Manager tool and configure the shared folders to recognize new users. New users
are automatically added to the Home Media Drive every time Home Storage Manager is installed
or used for the first time. The automatically added username will match the username of the
computer account login.

If you wish to manually connect to a shared folder without using the Home Storage Manager
software, follow the instructions below.

Manual Connection:

1. Open a Windows Explorer window.

2. Enter \\<device IP address>, then click Go.

3. Enter a user name and password (required only if you have secure shared folders), then
click OK. The default shares do not require a user name or password.

Filenaming Conventions
When sharing files on a network, you must choose filenames that are compatible with all devices
that will use the file. The Home Media Drive shares files using the SMB (Server Message Block)
protocol and stores its files on XFS (built-in), FAT32 (external), and NTFS (external) hard drives.
You will need to use characters supported by these filesystems to successfully share your files.
Any filename supported by a Windows PC should work with most platforms.

Invalid filenames:

Any filename containing the characters: " / \ < > ? : * |


Any filename that contains extended characters such as , , , , etc. (characters typed
with the the Ctrl key on the Mac).
Any filename that ends with a space or period.
Any filename that begins with a period.
some filenames such as comX, lptX, con, nul, prn, etc. maybe reserved for use by the
operating system of your client computer (where X represents a number).
Although filenames may be up to 256 characters long, the file path is limited to 260
characters in some operating systems. For best results, use short filenames.

Failure to comply with naming guidelines may result in the following error messages:

File name too long


Cannot copy file
Cannot read from source file or disk
Error message -43

Adding a User
In most cases it will not be necessary for you to add users. Users are only required when you have
at least one shared folder set to Secure. The Iomega Home Storage Manager will automatically
add a user (based on your computer account login) when it is installed. If you log into the same
computer using a different account, Home Storage Manager will create a new user based on the
computer account login.

In some cases you may want to manually add users (for instance, if you want to connect to a
secured share without installing the Home Storage Manager software).

To manually add users:

1. Click on the Iomega Home Storage Manager icon in the System Tray (Windows) or Menu Bar
(Mac), then select your drive from the Configure submenu.

2. Enter the administrator password if you have created one, then click Log in. You will not
see the password screen if you have not previously created an administrator password. By
default, the administrator password is blank.

3. Click on the Folders button.

4. Click the
.1.+ Add User button.

5. Enter the name of the user you want to create.

NOTE: When manually creating users, your username will need to exactly match the
account login of the user's computer. Iomega Home Storage Manager uses your computer
account login when it connects to Home Media Drive shared folders.

6. Enter a password for the user.

file://D:\ENGLISH\HTML Manual\printall.html 9/12/2009


Page 48 of 75

NOTE: The password will not be required when you have Home Storage Manager installed,
unless you are manually connecting to a share or logging in from a second computer with
the same account name

7. Re-enter the password to verify spelling.

8. Click the Apply button.

9. The user will appear in the user list at the top of the screen. The Create User screen will
remain open so you can add more users. Click Close to quit entering new users.

Drive and not to a USB hub. The device will be configured automatically as an unsecured shared
folder. You can reconfigure this as a secure shared folder; however, you will have to do this every

Sharing a USB Printer


You can share a single USB printer simply by connecting the device to the USB port on the back of
the Home Media Drive. The drive should be connected directly to the Home Media Drive and not
to a USB hub. Once the printer is connected it is automatically shared. No special configuration is
necessary. The printers will be shared at the location:

\\<Home Media Drive address>\Printer1

Connecting and disconnecting a printer causes the Home Media Drive's Samba (SMB file sharing)
service to restart. When this service restarts, all current connections will be interrupted. Your
computer should automatically reconnect to the share once the service has been restarted. If
your connection is not restored, use the Home Storage Manager software to reconnect to the
Home Media Drive.

CAUTION! Do not connect or disconnect printers while the Home Media Drive is performing a data
transfer. When the connection is severed, the data transfer will be interrupted and data may be
lost.

Adding a Printer in Windows

Drive is not recognized on your system

Make sure the drive is powered on. See Connecting the Home Media Drive.

Make sure you are using a functional Ethernet cable. We suggest using the Ethernet cable
that shipped with your drive. Verify that the link LED on the back of the drive is on.

Make sure the Ethernet cable is connected to a 10/100/1000Base-T switch, hub, or router
or directly to your computer.

Check all connections (power and network).

Page 61 of 75

on the Settings tab located in the System area. For step-by-step instructions, see Changing the
Machine Name.

I changed the Network Name of the drive in Home Storage Manager and I can no longer access
it on my network

Your computer needs to update its list of devices on the network. There are several possible
solutions:

your computer automatically updates its list. See How do I find the device's IP address?

Consult your computers firewall software documentation regarding opening appropriate ports for
file / folder sharing.

The following ports are associated with file sharing and server message block (SMB)
communications:

Why are shares disconnected when I modify users or groups?

Modifying users and groups will cause the Home Media Drive's Samba (SMB file sharing) service to
restart. When this service restarts, all current connections will be interrupted. Your computer
should automatically reconnect to the share once the service has been restarted. If your
connection is not restored, use the Home Storage Manager software to reconnect to the Home
Media Drive.

CAUTION! Do not create new users and groups while the Home Media Drive is performing a data
transfer. When the connection is severed, the data transfer will be interrupted and data may be
lost.
