First time setup - Dashboard not seeing Drobo

Hi, I followed the 3 easy steps in the instructions but Dashboard is not recognizing my Drobo FS and sits there “waiting for connection”.

I’m using XP Professional SP3 and using the default WORKGROUP.

I can ping the Drobo and connect to the \drobo-fs share and all of the LEDs are green on the unit. Tried upgrading from Dashboard 1.7.2 to 1.7.3 but dashboard still sits there.

No tech support until Monday so has anyone run into this problem and if so, how did you fix it?

Thanks in advanced.

Maybe a firewall issue. Did you try to disable the firewall temporarily?

Thanks Vulli_pb. That was it.
