DJH,

I would love to hear how you were able to create the filter exceptions
to allow
access. I have an exception that allows 51080 in to the private
address of my
NetStorage server (using static NAT), and a response exception that
allows
51080 back out from the private address of my NetStorage server. When
I test
with the packet filters unloaded everything works as expected.
However, when I
load the packet filters I get prompted for a login, but the
authentication
process never completes. It's almost as if the authentication process
times
out. It just repeatedly prompts for login information.

Thank you in advance,
Aaron DiBari
