Hi All, I’ve purchased a Netgear ReadyNAS Duo RND2110. The NAS is on my network with its own IP address, host name and MAC address.
Although I can browse to the backup directory on my NAS drive within Norton Ghost 15 the software insists that I enter a username and password. There are no usernames and passwords associated with the drive but it won't continue without this information.
Does anyone have an idea as to how I get around this problem please?

I hate the way it does that.
It's actually asking for a windows user\pass not one associated with the drive.
It also won't take "blank" passwords.
What version of windows are you using and do you have a user account on the system that uses a password?

Sorry, I think I was mistaken. I was thinking about backing up to a network share (on another computer running windows).
I think your NAS does have user accounts:

Hi Dave, Many thanks for your posts. I've tried both using the admin user and setting up a new user but when I hit next in the wizard Ghost just locks up. I've downloaded a trial of Acronis True Image and there are no problems with that so I'm just going to ditch Ghost as it's taking up too much time.
Many thanks again, Alan
