      Port 445 SMB

      Hi all,

      I have been trying to get port 445 open so i can use filebrowser with the ipad to acces my nas at home.

      I can access it from home but when at work or out i cant access it. i have adde the service on the router and then set it in the firewall to be open i have set an outgoing one aswell as that might be some reason it doesnt work. i have done port scan and it keeps coming back with the port isn't responding i have tried connecting form work and keep getting errors.

      I followed the guide given on here about how to do it.

      Regards

      Aidan

      I am seeing the same problem with same software - if Port 445 is set open in the f\w, it does no actually open.

      Think it is a Sky router issue so have emailed tech support

      Some ports are closed by Sky for security purposes and these remain closed at all time, we cannot provide assistance on how to open these, as this may make Sky liable for any security risks that arise. If you can figure out how to open the ports such that they remain open, this is your choice, however we cannot assist in this matter. I am unable to give you information to which ports are closed, I can however direct you to google.com search engine.

      So, I guess that means 445 is closed.
