I’ve installed firefly. it shows up in dorobo apps admin.
when I type in http://ip address goes here:3689 I get a message saying that safari can’t connect to the server. the same thing happens when I try to configure the app through the drobo app.
I think it was. Checked the routers firewall settings and discovered I needed to set up port forwarding. Having done that I thought things would work but no luck. Have typed the address in a couple times to be really sure but nothing doing…
The client machine is whatever machine is trying to access the Drobo FS, in your case it’s your MacBook Pro.
Most likely there is a firewall or Internet security setting that is blocking unknown ports.
Regular known ports like 80 (for HTTP) and 443 (HTTPS) are fine, but oddball ports like 3689 are generally blocked by default.
