By default the Ethernet Disk mini or Ethernet Big Disk is configured to retrieve its IP address from a DHCP server. If your network is managed by a DHCP server and you cannot access your Ethernet Disk mini or Ethernet Big Disk, try checking your DHCP server’s log. To get the IP address, run the LaCie IP configurator software tool, which is located on the LaCie Storage Utilities CD-ROM. If your network is NOT managed by a DHCP server, the Ethernet Disk mini or Ethernet Big Disk uses its default IP address, which is 192.168.1.100. To change this IP address, use the LaCie IP Configurator software tool.
- Is the IP address properly set? For more information, please see section 4. Accessing the Shared Storage.
- Is your network DHCP en-abled? If your network is DHCP enabled, please refer to sections 3.5. Installing and Running the IP Configurator Wizard and 5. Configure Your Drive Using the NAS Administration Page. If your network is not DHCP enabled, you will need to manually configure the address; please see section 3.6. Configure Your Drive on a Local Area Network with no DHCP Server.
- Are you using AppleTalk under Mac OS 9.x? If you are using AppleTalk under Mac OS 9.x, ensure that the Ethernet Disk mini or Ethernet Big Disk and the other clients on the network are in the same AppleTalk zone.
